This book was very interesting and very different. You can check it out here.
Summary: The story kicks off with a group of ex-military men, politicians, and computer hackers starting a digital revolution known as the White House Games right before the presidential election. The White House Games involved three stages of competition for the two presidential candidates: surviving in a jungle setting while being trained in martial arts, going through Navy SEAL training, and then finally having a head-to-head battle.
Likes: First of all, there’s no doubt that the two presidential candidates are based on Obama and Romney. There’s a lot of play with names between the two candidates, and even the other characters, that I find funny. The end of the book also offered an alternative political solution to America’s current way of doing things, which was utterly fascinating.
Dislikes: However, The White House Games had some issues when it came to the actual writing itself. There was a lot of exposition and some shifts in perspective without scene breaks. Also, while I did find the alternative political method fascinating, the way the characters implemented it went against the entire message the book was trying to convey.
TL;DR: I’d recommend The White House Games to anyone who’s interested in politics.
