    "I don't know if Kentucky can get more relevant than this in terms of literature. Robert Penn Warren is a classic, and All The Kings Men is a great example of a fine political journey."

    "This book was recommended to me by a friend. It's interesting and I'm glad I picked it up."

    "Often advertised as the great political novel, it really isn't about politics. Rather, it's a story of lost souls and lost opportunity and lost love and lost time. The prose is lovely and moving -- every chapter has an elegiac flight into some crevice of the Deep South. Reminiscent of Faulkner and Conroy and even a bit of Ayn Rand. I'm glad I read it but was also glad to finish it,"

    "All The King's Men is an American classic at this point. It was prescient at the time and it's still relevant today."

    "I hate to call anything a "classic" before the pages turn brown, but this one rates right up there. Not only that, but it is particularly relevant in today's political world. My highest recommendations as a read before election day, or any other time for that matter."

    "All the King's Men is a great read about the corruption of a politician. The story of Willie Stark does a great job teaching us the consequences of our actions and and the rewards for honesty. "

    "First and foremost: The Kindle edition of All The King's Men is not the extended version edited by Noel Polk. If you've never read All The King's Men this is good news. If you've read it once or several times, it's still good news. This is the originally published version from 1946 - not the version that renames Willie Stark as Willie Talos. Okay, if I could take two books with me to a desert island, the first book would be All The King's Men. The second book would also be All The King's Men, in case I lost the first book. I think it's that good, but that's just my opinion and it doesn't count for much. Some people hate it; they say it's long and that it rambles and waxes poetic and has lots of philosophy in it. They're right. Some people love it for the same reasons. But there is this about it: It is full to the brim and overflowing with life. It tells a fictional story of people that lived over 75 years ago - and it could just as well be talking about people that are alive today. You will find yourself in this book and you will know yourself better if you finish it. What more can you ask?"

    "All of the King's Men is a political novel which is considered to be one of the best books in Southern Literature. The book centers on the life of Willie Stark who is a demagogue and a politician. It tells about his beginnings as an alloy of his people and corruption encountered due to greed."
