Who is Jeb!!!: John Ellis “Jeb” Bush and His Horrendously Horrible Histories
Who is Jeb!!!: John Ellis “Jeb” Bush and his Horrendously Horrible Histories by Patrick Andendall is a tough book that explores the dark side of the Bush family, the kind of book that will appeal a lot to historians, gossip mongers, and readers who aren’t tired of digging up the old dirt covered up by the powerful people who have marked the history of America for many years. How did the Bushes get so famous? What has been Jeb Ellis’ gnawing motivation to run for the White House? Who is this man called John Ellis, a.k.a. “Jeb?” These are some of the questions that are answered in this book.
In a voice that is sharp and sarcastic, Patrick Andendall tells the history of the Bush family, with an unusual focus on John Ellis and what has created him. Yes, this is a story that will lead readers into the darkest closets of the lives led by some of the men and women whose decisions have affected the life of America and of millions of people around the world. The work is filled with a lot of references to substantiate facts, and the reader will undoubtedly think they are reading an author who’s known this family for many years and one who’s never left them. But the facts offered in this book, the atrocities, the intrigue, and the conspiracies are dark, so nauseatingly dark the reader will wonder if this is a story about real humans or some dark fiction.
The negativity, the intense sarcasm, and the sharp voice do not make the read very enjoyable. At some point it seems like the author is bent on exposing the evil in the Bush family, and it couldn’t be anything but fitting to ask: is there nothing, absolutely nothing, worth celebrating in this famous or “infamous” family? I found the read somewhat depressing, although the writer comes across clearly as opinionated and as a master researcher. The work will find a good welcome with people who are always out for a piece of information for gossip. The writing is beautiful, fluid, and flawless.
