President of the People
In Greg McLaughlin's The Third Party, Clint Groverton is the President the people want - and deserve. Alongside his running mate, Eveline Bohanon, the other perfect President, this book is exactly what made me keep reading. Such incredibly, realistically drawn characters serve to strengthen the story and make it a joy to read.

Also very realistic was the knowledge on platforms, issues, and statistics throughout the book, which lent a very credible feel to the storyline - the author's research and knowledge of news, state, government, politics, and current affairs is excellent, without a doubt. I personally enjoyed the descriptions of places and people - you could really "see" them.
Just as the reader is acclimating to the current state of affairs, a plot twist is thrown in and the reader has no choice but to keep going greedily to the next chapter, wondering how the conflict will be resolved.
A clear plotline and good, strong writing keeps the reader engaged throughout the entirety of the novel. I would only recommend an edit for some mild errors that don't actually detract from the flow of the story. That and making the first chapter a prologue. Otherwise, this is a brilliantly written, captivating narrative full of intrigue. excellent characterization and description. I look forward to reading another Greg McLaughlin book. My congratulations to the author!
