There's a reason Jimmy Carter is known as "History's Greatest
Yes, Carter has probably written more books than i've read.
Didn't find the beginning of this thread but assume its referenceing
I have no understanding of why he would be History's Greatest Monster
although I did not vote for him nor did I think he did much positive in
I did try to read one of his books. I think it was called "The Hornet's
Nest" and was supposed to be about a particular part of Georgia during
the American Revolution. It was supposed to be fiction, and the first
6 or 7 chapters were. I liked the characters, but he killed them all off by chapter 7. There was one odd out of context line before he killed of the last one referring to some sexual misdeed. It was so odd I thought when I read it "Oh, the editor suggested adding some sex for interest, and this is all he could come up with?" Because it had nothing to do with plot or character development.
There were hundreds of pages left which read like a very dry textbook. I do read historical non-fiction but could not wade through it. It sat by my bed for a couple years and finally I just donated it in case someone else could enjoy it. It would have been a much better book if he had just started out with chapter 8 and left out the fiction stuff or replaced it with an introductory chapter. Not that I would have likely read it that way.
I don't think I could bring myself to try anything else he wrote.
