I don't usually write reviews. I just enjoy things and move on. This one deserves a moment of my time to share how much I appreciate it. I am seeing a number of reviewers who question the realism of the circumstances in the story, the performance of Dennis Quaid, and even the involvement of Bill Clinton (Whom, I should add, I personally respect greatly. There is probably a bias here).
This story seems very well designed. I enjoyed the performance, and I connected well with the challenges that each character faces. Also, I'm a writer too and it has taught me a few lessons about how to improve myself. Clinton and Patterson did a great job.
Don't let bad reviewers fool you, it's a good story. Some people will simply hate things to be divisive for the sake of being divisive. At worst, it would make sense for someone to give it a 4-star review unless they are aliens trying to convince you that they are definitely-totally normal humans.
