My View: I have some choice words for this book. Lucky Lindy is unexceptionally repulsive. Self-centered, demanding, anti-Semitic, conceited, controlling, gloating, dictatorial, distant, unimaginative, cold, and flippant, he comes off as a one-trick pony who kicks the stableboy offstage. The book was belittling to the real Anne Lindbergh, probably unfair to the real Charles Lindbergh, and tasteless to write during the lifetimes of their children. It simply feels like a quasi-researched fantasy of Benjamin's, heavily influenced by reading too much Twilight and possibly 50 Shades of Gray, and poorly edited (so. much. repetition.). A cheap shot.
