Going Rogue by Sarah Palin--book review

"On September 3, 2008, Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention that electrified the nation and instantly made her one of the most recognizable women in the world." -- book cover

I enjoyed this reading this book. Far more than a political commentary, Palin recounts her life of growing up in the wilds of Alaska, marrying and having children, deciding to get involved in politics, the importance of her faith, and the trials of being a working mother. I learned a lot about Alaska, the largest state, by far, in our United States. Palin makes Alaska sound like the most beautiful place on earth. Sarah Palin's description of "politics" --both Alaskan and Presidential--and all that includes, was fascinating-a true, behind the scenes look at the way laws get made and things get done--or don't get done, as the case may be. I loved reading about everything that goes on in order to elect a president for this country. I enjoyed reading about Palin's children, and the things they did together as a family. Her faith shines through every sentence of the book. Palin is a Christian who applies God's laws to her everyday life--both at home and in the political arena.

Even though the 2008 election is long over, Sarah Palin is still letting her voice be heard. If you'd like to understand her better, or just want an enjoyable book to read, pick this book up and read it.

  1. Good information. I've wanted to read this, but wondered if it was worth the time. It sounds like it is.
