Inhaltsangabe

"In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I'm letting my guard down." (Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened)

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

In this audiobook she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells listeners what it took to get back on her feet - the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath - both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

Lots of anger. Lots of hope.

Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

It’s a darn long read. Or in my case, with the audiobook, a darn long listen – 16hrs 50 min in total. That’s long.

I admit, I didn’t enjoy most of the book tremendously. It dragged on, it was filled with anger, and if you thought you heard the word “emails” all too often before election – this book might just push you over the edge. I do think that she might look back at this book in a few years wondering if she should have had it reviewed just one more time very carefully before publishing.

I was ready to give this book a less than fortunate rating – all too many repetitions, too much anger, too much finger pointing.

But here is the thing. She deserves to be listened to, she gets to point fingers, she makes a good case for what happened. And she doesn’t ignore her responsibility in it all. She is the first to own the loss and identify every wrong turn she took. That deserves credit.

Could the book have been shorter? Definitely! But you know what? She has always been accused of not sharing enough about her true self, she was always criticized was not letting people look behind closed doors – here you have it all. And guess what – now people are complaining that she shares too much! There is just no way she can do it right. So, I listen to the TV shows, books, newspapers she enjoyed since November 2016. I endure hearing – what appears every single person’s name and role in her campaign. I stay with her when she quotes letters and conversations in what sometimes appears a seemingly endless fashion. We always asked for that – for her to let us in. Now, we should listen.

You might not agree with everything she writes and concludes – that’s fair. I know, I don’t. But she explains what happened very well – though you wouldn’t think so over the first few hours. But it all comes together. Her own mistakes, James Comey, Russian cyber attacks, and more. She summarizes it well when she says – towards the end of the book – that pointing out all the elements that led to her loss doesn’t mean she doesn’t take responsibility, it means that in addition to her mistakes there were other elements that cannot be ignored and require investigation. She is right about that.

One part of the book I recommend strongly to cross-read with other literature, is the one about Russia. She feels very strongly about Putin. And while I admit that she certainly knows the politician better than I do, I often wonder if she might have locked herself in a corner with her stance. I can’t say for sure, but I do recommend reading Gabriele Krone-Schmalz to get an experts opinion with a different stance – just to balance out the bias. I am not actually sure if Krone-Schmalz’ books have been translated into English, but if you speak German you are in luck.

In any case – if you lasted until the very last chapter of What Happened?, it shall have been worth it. “Resilience” – the last chapter. It is wonderful. If the entire book was written in that tone, it would be beautiful. But alas “Resilience” focuses on the future. The other chapters analyzed the past. And while the past had lovely and wonderful passages (about her marriage, about her best friend and partner Bill, about Chelsea, about friends, etc.), she was angry. She was angry about what happened. And you can tell. But “Resilience” is hopeful, it’s positive, optimistic, it’s filled with love and kindness.

To fully appreciate this chapter however, I fear, it makes sense to read the entire book.

Her book taught me a lot. About her, about her politics, about America. I appreciate it all (well, almost all). “Resilience”, though, is the chapter that touched me deeply. And it is the chapter that put her anger into perspective and leads me to give her one star more than I had intended.

I recommend this book to anyone that finally wants to see the real Mrs. Clinton. You can’t make that stuff up.

An absolute must read no matter what you thought

An absolute must read no matter what you thought you knew. Deeply saddening, gratefully inspiring, and a warning we must all hear with an open, critical mind.

It's readable

Although I'm sick of the status quo of the world, since I'm not an American but i would've voted for her if i were.

Buch ohne Tiefgang

Das Warten auf dieses Buch hat sich definitiv nicht gelohnt. Ich habe den Wahlkampf von HRC aufmerksam verfolgt und von diesem Buch noch mehr Hintergrundinformationen erwartet. Fehlanzeige, das Buch gleicht mehr einem mittelmässigen Reisebericht ohne Tiefgang.

Typisch Clinton- dazu Trost für enttäuschte Wähler

Was genau hat Sie an What Happened enttäuscht?

Auf typischer Clinton Weise gesteht sie allein die Verantwortung für die Fehler ihrer Niederlage zu tragen... bevor sie mit einer langen Lister der wirklich Schuldigen raushaut. Auf dieser Liste sind:
- Hacker aus Russland
- FBI-Hauptmann James Comey
- Eine "politische Presse", die zu viel und zu oft ihre E-Mails erwähnt habe
- Ein Geist des Ressentiments, der z.Z. Amerika präge

Gähnalarm

Was genau hat Sie an What Happened enttäuscht?

HRC heult 16 Stunden lang (mit emotionsloser) Stimme herum und stellt sich dabei als Super-Heldin dar, welche ein Marvel-Comic-Book Held sein müsste.

Was werden Sie wohl als nächstes hören?

Nichts von HRC

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Hillary Rodham Clinton versuchen?

Niemals.

Welche Emotionen hat dieses Hörbuch bei Ihnen ausgelöst? Ärger, Betroffenheit, Enttäuschung?

Lustlosigkeit

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Nicht kaufen.
