King John of Canada Read & Download ↠ 9 Scott Gardiner Å 9 review Read Ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub Å Scott Gardiner A hilarious political satire in the tradition of Mordecai RichlerThis is a funny biting political satire set in the not too distant future A series of minority governments and endless uebec referendums designed to lose narrowly to keep the money coming have left Canada almost ungovernable When the Governor General resigns in disgrace and the House of Windsor implodes in London a media baron launches the idea. Great book Intelligently witty full of Canadian satire and though I did find the ending disappointing the rest was uirkily charming

King John of Canada Read & Download ↠ 9 Scott Gardiner Å 9 review Read Ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub Å Scott Gardiner Of a Canadian king or ueen elected by lotteryIt starts as a joke except that the lucky winner King John a bright and charismatic guy from Toronto knows exactly what people want Soon uebec is gone while Toronto’s surprise bid to leave Canada is averted by shifting his official residence the new seat of power to the Toronto waterfront Many good things happen and the politicians go along for the ride And the. This book is lucky it has such an interesting plot otherwise I might have given up on it a third of the way through The narrator is chronologically situated at the end of the story so his retelling of the events feels rather distant especially when he talks about his and the titular monarch s experiences in university It therefore took me rather a long time to get really involved with the characters and go along for the satirical political rideFans of Canadian politics will likely enjoy this book or certainly have a strong reaction at least the usual touchstones of uebec regionalism the armed forces and the Canadian identity are extensively played with here often very amusingly Some of it seems a bit wish fulfillment as opposed to this could actually happen but this is fiction after all and that s one of the best parts of writing fiction having characters do or say things you wish you could do That s certainly the only reason I write which is also the reason I don t write for publication a little wish fulfillment goes a long wayTo sum up read this if you like amusing novels about Canadian politics but read it when you won t be distracted and when you re receptive to what could be Also if you re an English history buff don t let the connotations of the title King John spoil the book I will admit that s the first thing I think of when I see those two words together like Ugh Lackland This King John is a bit competent and a lot loyalty inspiring
