My opinion of Bill O’Reilly is all over the map. Color me ambivalent.
On the one hand, I find his show to be highly entertaining. I think he’s a smart guy. I agree with him more often than I disagree. And I must admit to being converted by his proposal regarding capital punishment.
However, I also believe he is a pompous ass. He is an arrogant bully. He often says things that aren’t exactly true, but usually refuses to correct himself later. He talks down to his guests, and is less “fair and balanced” than he lets on.
Oh, and his writing is complete shit.
His non-fiction stuff is readable, but hardly well-written or particularly enjoyable. But his one attempt at fiction, Those Who Trespass, was utter garbage.
I won’t even bother to get into the plot. It was poorly-written. Its ending was anti-climactic. And throughout the “novel” one senses he is venting a murderous rage that he feels towards some of those he has encountered in his past. (I feel this man is more than a little dangerous. I would be unsurprised if he tried to strangle one of his guests someday…)
I recommend never wasting your valuable time to read this swill. Perhaps this will be the rare occasion where the movie is better than the book it is based upon.
I mean, it couldn’t be much worse.
