Description

It was never supposed to be this close. And of course she was supposed to win. How Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump is the tragic story of a sure thing gone off the rails. For every Comey revelation or hindsight acknowledgment about the electorate, no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Hillary's campaign - the candidate herself.

Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, political writers Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, the well-intentioned misfires and the hidden thorns that turned a winnable contest into a devastating loss. Drawing on the authors' deep knowledge of Hillary from their previous book, the acclaimed biography HRC, Shattered will offer an object lesson in how Hillary herself made victory an uphill battle, how her difficulty articulating a vision irreparably hobbled her impact with voters, and how the campaign failed to internalize the lessons of populist fury from the hard-fought primary against Bernie Sanders.

Moving blow by blow from the campaign's difficult birth through the bewildering terror of election night, Shattered tells an unforgettable story with urgent lessons both political and personal, filled with revelations that will change the way listeners understand just what happened to America on November 8, 2016.

disappointing reading

I would have loved this book. The slow, mechanical reader completely ruined this for me. I'm a regular political junkie, but this was just unlistenable.

Kept At Arms Length From Hillary

What made the experience of listening to Shattered the most enjoyable?

The reader is very clear. I was able to listen at increased speed and get every word. The book itself is well paced.

What did you like best about this story?

The inside view of the Clinton Campaign.

Any additional comments?

I wish some of the comments in the conclusion had been made at the beginning of the book. In particular, the explanation of how the authors knew what people were thinking. Often Shattered includes statements about what Clinton or Obama thought. "Humm, how did they get in their head," I would wonder. That is explained.

The book works to show Clinton from many angles, but paints Republicans with one wide brush.

In many instances the book does not really take us behind the scenes as much as we'd like. It doesn't keep us close to Clinton, it keeps moving to campaign staff. We get very very familiar with the people working for Hillary, but are often kept at arms length from the main character.

What exactly happened on election night? According to Shattered, all was calm and collect on Hillary's end. A few calls from the President, a thoughtful night on how to step aside gracefully. No explosions. And maybe that's how it was. But it again gives the reader a feeling that they aren't being shown everything.

Better read than heard

Any additional comments?

I looked forward to reading this book and discovering the dynamics of the of Hillary Clinton campaign. I was quite disappointed. Much of analysis struck me as superficial, even though the authors managed to quote a lot of people. Something didn’t quite ring true. But since I listened to, rather than read, this book, I am not quite sure.My biggest difficulty with Shattered was with the reader. She stamped every line with her own snarky personal interpretation and this had to have altered the meaning of the written words in some way. If I listen to a book ready by an author, I know that the way she says something is the way she means it. In this case, I wonder if the authors agree with the interpretation of their chosen reader.In the end, I believe this is a book better read than listened to.

Slightly verbose but still valuable learnings

Spends way too much time around the primaries. Wished they spent more time on the campaign activities during presidential elections. But overall I would recommend this book as it describes in a lot of detail the biggest political debacle in recent history.

Disappointing

What would have made Shattered better?

The book was written from a point of view devoted entirely to the apologetics of Clinton. Instead of reporting the overall facts of the campaign, the authors instead chose to report only what is considered the approved narrative.

What could Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Report the entire story, not just the narrative approved by the Clinton Campaign.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kimberly Farr’s performances?

No.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Worth the read

We all know how the story ends. I was hoping the book would give further anecdotes and tidbits and maybe dive in more to why the HRC campaign made the decisions it did.

Some of the writing was dramatic. The book is told from the perspective of Hillary's to lose so people like Bernie are described as "scowling" etc. but otherwise it flowed like a story.

The narrator was excellent

Disappointed

It didn't really measure up to the "insider information" as touted. The story seemed to follow what was out there as public knowledge.

Good, But Slanted

The book is a thorough revisit of the 2016 election. My only problem with it is that it has selective memory of the things that Clinton thought caused her loss For example, the book describes the Wikileaks dump dominating that week's news cycle far more than the Access Hollywood tape release.

Anyone who watched cable news during that week would know that about 90% of coverage was dedicated to the Access Hollywood tape. The book goes on to argue that the Comey letter and the Wikileak dump as unfair to Clinton without recognizing that the Access Hollywood tape may have been seen as unfair to Trump, but perhaps even more so.

Other than the subtle slant towards Clinton in what purportedly caused Clinton to lose the election, the book is still worth reading.

It's no "Game Change"

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it had some real insight into the campaigns.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes again?

Probably not.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shattered?

The authors are clearly Hillary supporters and their partisanship ruins the book unless you are a Hillary fanboy. I would cut out the blatant bias and cheap shots when describing The Hillary's primary opponents and Republican adversaries, which ruins the objectivity of the book.

Any additional comments?

It's no "Game Change", the behind the scenes book on the 2008 election.

Another "what happened" re: Nov 8 2016

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

While there is no shortage of "How did we end up with Trump " books, this one is quite interesting in so far as it concentrates on the Clinton's team character, rather then trying to psychoanalyze the mood of the country. By no means, is it a complete and comprehensive picture, but neither it should be. Instead, in combination with something like Devil's bargain, you can really get a complete picture. How Trump was indeed perfect match to defeat Clinton and why.

Interesting but partisan account of 2016 US presidential campaign

This is an interesting but partisan (or maybe interesting because partisan) view of the Hilary Clinton campaign from a left of center Democratic perspective. Leaves out much of the damning detail, but strong on psychological insight.
