How the Hell Did This Happen?: The Election of 2016
Undertone. I really, really wanted to laugh while reading P. J. O’Rourke’s book on the 2016 Presidential election titled, How the Hell Did This Happen?. Instead, I found his humor a bit too sour to trigger my funny bone. I think I kept sensing an undertone to his text that inhibited my search for humor: a sense that his sadness and mine melded, and we can’t find the humor. If you’re more ready than I am to enjoy O’Rourke’s punditry and satire, please consider this book as a chance to take pleasure in reading his latest work.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
