A brilliant and penetrating look behind the scenes of modern American politics, Primary Colors is a funny, wise, and dramatic story with characters and events that resemble some familiar, real-life figures. When a former congressional aide becomes part of the staff of the governor of a small Southern state, he watches in horror, admiration, and amazement, as the governor mixes calculation and sincerity in his not-so-above-board campaign for the presidency.… (más)

Another book on my TBR-shelf for years. I got this when I was in my teens and could not go beyond the first page then. I doubt I would have understood it if I have tried. Reading it feels like watching TV because you can visualise the scenes, and the dialogue feels real. The characters are interesting but flawed. The character of Libby adds half-a-star; she is so funny (aside from her tragic ending). In this battle, you have to make choices and decide where you stand. And the strongest or luckiest (like Jack Stanton) survive. ( )

This is a GREAT plot, well written and really interesting so now I don't care who wrote it. (reviewed in 1996) ( )

I read this shortly after it was published in the late 1990's. I enjoyed it then and I enjoyed it again now. ( )

I'm imagining some of this is fictional, but his portrayal of Bill is pretty amazing. ( )

I read "Primary Colors" way back when the author was Anonymous; at the time I hoped the author was Al Gore or Dan Quail or similar. Turns out Anonymous was some random bloke, which took some of the gloss off the book for me.

An ever so slightly fictionalised retelling of Bill Clinton's 1992 Presidential campaign, and even back then you were feeling sorry for Hillary Clinton/Susan Stanton for having to put up with Bill's/Jack's misdemeanors. ( )

"Primary Colors" is an odd book. But maybe the oddest thing about it is how good it is. In spite of its sins it is far and away the best thing I have read about the 1992 campaign; it breaks all the rules and lives to tell about it.

As long as it's in the muck and sticking reasonably close to the facts (and lies) of 1992, Primary Colors is great fun. The descriptions of the campaign trail, from the union-hall meetings to the rubber-chicken dinners, are superb, as is the portrayal of Stanton's relationship with his wife, Susan. It's only when Primary Colors departs from its tasty combo of imaginative journalism and insider politics that it becomes ordinary.
 
There is a gift of slang and lingo in this novel—"Handi Wipes" for disposable appointees; "muffins" for young and impressionable volunteers; "scorps" for reporters—that in its automatic callousness bespeaks the real thing. As usual, though, the apparently hard-nosed carapace conceals an almost puerile sentimentality...

"Anonymous" takes the view that the "scorps" or scorpions of the Fourth Estate are forever on a blood-in-the-water alert. This opinion, very common in the political class, ministers to its mirror-image among the press corps, which is always ready, with a shy self-deprecating grin, to confess that if it has a fault it is an excess of the "adversarial" gene. Such poppycock, which is in reality no more than an exercise in mutual self-regard, has its usefulness for both parties. The politicians can claim to be held to an impossible standard (which they never are) and the pundits can hold seminars of introspection about whether they have gone too far (which they never do).
