the book introduce itself as Slovenian take on Melania, the third and latest wife of the current President of the United States Donald Trump. I find it more like a curiosity, a very personal point of view on why she ended up married to The Donald then a proper socio-cultural analysis. a very quick read indeed.
I won’t lie I was very unsure about this story. I hate to say it be I had prejudge and categorized Melania Trump without really knowing anything about her. If I did have information it was from news articles and those can always be manipulated to make a certain point. She is our First Lady and deserves the benefit of the doubt. It gives me a great sense of where she grew up. It only gives the reader a vague sensibility of her, but the country’s culture and how the people their developed was a new take. I like how they use Melania Trump as an example, but I don’t like how impersonal it was from Melania Trump’s story. I think Melania Trump could be a great raising up story that is inspiring, but there is a lack of her personal story. I was hoping to understand her more or at least a better relatable understanding. I think I had a different understanding of how this would go and that’s why I struggled with taking something more away from this.
This was an interesting look at Melania Trump. It explains to some extent where she came from and how that has shaped her. There is not much depth or explanation of specific events, but more an overview of Slovenian culture. The book increased my respect for Mrs. Trump.
I found the book to be somewhat interesting.I had hoped to read more of an in depth account of her life but all I got was just an outline.It gives me the feeling that the book has been put together in a hurry.
Sandi Gorisek's short book “Melania Trump” is a bit of a misnomer. It’s really a book on some interesting historical facts about Slovenia in the last decades of the 20th century. It is actually NOT a biography of Melania Trump. Mr. Gorisek also hails from Slovenia, and he is about the same age as Melania Trump, and so he provides some interesting insights about coming of age in this beautiful country.
I found the book problematic for one main reason. First, Gorisek purportedly presents the view of a “typical Slovenian,” as if he, Melania Trump, and all Slovenians are somehow the same and think the same. This is like trying to generalize about the “typical” American. There is really no such thing. He speaks of a “common Slovenian soul” that all Slovenians possess, such as himself and Melania Trump. Gorisek is basically saying that he has the inside scoop on Slovenians, and if you want to get to know Melania Trump, you should read his book.
Also, I found it ironic that he criticizes capitalism in the west for giving us “hipsters” who can’t lift a hammer, and kids who learn the word “lawyer before they learn their obligations,” and yet he seems to miss the point that Melania Trump married a billionaire capitalist. While Gorisek’s book provides some fascinating fun facts about the history of Slovenia, this short book is not the biography I hoped for.
