a harsh review of Bill Clinton's memoir "My Life"

Tuesday, June 22, 2004
Famed NY Times Book reviewer, Michiko Kakutani slams Bill Clinton's new memoir in his review.

Kakutani writes: "The book, which weighs in at more than 950 pages, is sloppy, self-indulgent and often eye-crossingly dull — the sound of one man prattling away, not for the reader, but for himself and some distant recording angel of history."

Because i do not read many of Kakutani's reviews and don't know how far in line they fall with my own, i don't know what to think about the review, only that it seems to be fairly indicative of the consensus on the memoir. Of course, Presidential Autobiography is probably never the most reliable of sources.
