A Promised Land: Story Progression
A Promised Land converges more on the political memorial of Barak Obama. However, Obama doesn’t deceive his readers and gives great acumen into his personal life. There is an ambiance of nostalgia when Obama describes her first date with Malia or her baby Sasha’s laugh as he masticates her feet. There is an emanation of grief and despondency when the former U.S.A President pictures her mother sucking ice-cubes as her glands are destroyed by cancer. A delightful climate soothes the readers when Barack explains her little angel falling asleep on his shoulder.
However, the story’s main grip lies in the political enlightenment and segregation of Barack’s life. Let it be the saga of gate-crashing or a force a meeting with China at a climate summit; the tension always keeps a loop in his book.
However, the protagonist of the book is its climax. The way Obama penned down the omnipotent plan to execute Bin Laden is nothing short of an action-pack Hollywood script, with a tincture of emotion with it. Right from Obama’s descriptions of deciding to authorize military action to the actual raid gives goosebumps to the readers. The layout of the secret plan with the NATO coalition is invigorating. However, Obama also exhibits the cathartic exaltation of the aftermath.
Apart from Osama’s thrilling execution, the climax of the book also took a slight dig at his successor Donald Trump. Obama ridicules him with the statement of “outsider” by Trump on him.
In short, A Promised Land is a political sovereign of Obama’s reign as the USA’s President. It is an autobiography that seals the Americans’ trust in the two times, President Barak Obama. It is a must-read book for those who embrace discovering the memorial of the most renowned politicians of the world.
