Review: Rodham, Curtis Sittenfeld

Rodham was amazing. But also a little sad because “what if’s” always make me long for the alternate reality presented.

What if Hillary hadn’t married Bill?

I’ve pondered this before. The better what if, though, is what if women weren’t held accountable for the men around them and men were held accountable for their actions? That’s the what if I’d love to one day see.

Rodham was a phenomenal book, as is my expectation with anything Sittenfeld touches. It spanned nearly four decades and explored so much history, and rewrote quite a bit too.

Now, I’ll be off daydreaming about the what if’s presented here.
