BUILDIND A BETTER YOU – A review of Joe McGee ‘s ‘The White House Is fake’ – By Michael Chineme Ike (youngauthor)
The moment i finished reading the novel ‘The White House is fake’ I had to take a chilled coke to dilute the effect the story had on me.
When Joe sent this book from the United States, I never thought it would be as great as it actually is. I was simply looking at the title which suggests at the first instance that it’s probably a book written to make mockery of President Trumps Administration. .. Funny right? Yes, that was what I thought.
The moment I started reading the book, I was caught in between suspense and excitement. Every page of the book would leave you anticipating the next one. The twist was simply amazing! With the use of real names,events and places…the story looked more real than fictious.
When Nelson died, I wanted to slap Joe. I felt so sad! Why would he die at a time when the big break was around the corner. I left the book and slept for a while then resumed.
Now, Nelson’s ghost was introduced and the story took another exciting turn. The ride became even more interesting.
At a point, the protagonist moved from Nelson to Mattew and it all added spices to the story.
Towards the end of the story… The tension increased and i was even lost in the story when Joe brought me back to reality with the revelation that all those occurrences never actually took place but were happening in the imaginative mind of our young hero, Nelson Conrad. This was followed by another twist that sparked off my emotions until i reached the ‘End’
Here’s the deal,
Somehow and Unknown to Joe, he treated an issue in the Nigerian Political Scene. A situation where we think that the President we elected is ruling without knowing that he’s only a vessel used by people we describe as ‘cabals’.
Godfatherism has been a very big problem with the Nigerian Politics and from Joe’s book… I’m now very confident that someday, somehow our own ‘Nelson’ would arrive to uncover this ‘biggest political secret’ (issue like the Boko Haram, Chibok girls Kidnap, Herdsmen attacks. Etc are all part of the secret that I know will be revealed someday)
In Nelson, I saw myself.
Oh yes… I saw myself battling with life and what I believe in.
I’m someone that when I want something… I’ll keep fighting to have it against all odds.
I’m someone that will see a big obstacle or a big threat but because of the passion I have for what am doing, will keep fighting till the very end.
Nelson in this story today has inspired me to be more than I’ve ever been.
To always fight for what I believe in, even in death.
To always fight to BUILD A BETTER ME!
The imaginative experience that Nelson had moved him to aim higher in Life… He decided to become someone that could make a change in the society.
That high school boy who had no aim in life eventually wanted to be part of something meaningful and then joined Politics with hope to lead the people someday and make things right.
In same way, the story has inspired me a lot to be better. To aim higher and to never give up on myself.
May I also add that this novel have inspired another great story into my head now.
Honestly Joe, you did an amazing work!
I felt like starting the story all over again.
Please, give us more like this.
I’m sincerely looking forward to the next book ‘letters for Annie’ . Do send them across and also on our project.
Keep on keeping on brother.
More ink to your pen!
May your pen keep bleeding.

For a new book, I’d say that The White House is A Fake is an exciting one. Joseph McGee stunned me with a deeply drawn imagination that transcends from reality to the unreal and back to reality.
When I started reading The White House Is A Fake, I first fell in love with Nelson Conrad’s investigative nature. Nelson Conrad seeked an adventure, and then he finds one. The very one that drives him into an unreal pigment with fragments of reality laced therein.
In this adventure, Nelson uncovers a secret that leads to his discovery of James Hutchinson. James Hutchinson worked for the government, and had also been part of a big cover up. While his inquisitive and curious nature won’t let him stop meddling, Nelson was killed my James Hutchinson who staged the act to make it look like Nelson had committed suicide.
A curious cat would also be curious and this leaves the ghost of Nelson roaming, seeking to finish his mission and uncover the secrets that translates to be the biggest cover-up in the political history of the United States.
After twenty three years, the ghost of Nelson finally met Matthew Underwood with whom he believed his legacy would be unveiled and the government exposed.
At the end of it all, Nelson comes close to shocking truth. It was all a game and he was never dead.
The White House Is A Fake is viscerally exciting, an ornate suspenser, leaving goosebumps and tension. It was indeed expertly crafted and remains a very interesting read.

The White House Is Fake is an incredible, thought-provoking piece of nonfiction that opened my eyes to a troubling conspiracy in the most entertaining and fascinating of ways. Joseph McGee is the author of this superb and newsworthy book, and his findings will shock many readers to their core… I know I was! As a woman who is deeply fascinated by American history and The White House, this book seemed like the perfect read, and as I started to read it, I discovered that it was, in fact, perfect thanks to its poignancy as well as its exhilarating moments and thrilling literature courtesy of McGee. If you are a reader who loves reading about the history of America as well as dark conspiracies involving the White House and a shocking conspiracy theory that is entirely plausible then read this intriguing book!
The White House Is Fake is an in-depth examination of President Dwight Eisenhower and the bill he created which was the Federal-Aid Highway Act which is also known as the National Interstate and Defense Highway Act. However, a year after Eisenhower created this bill he modified it, and its meaning changed forever. Nelson Conrad is a man who makes this discovery because one evening, on his way back from a fishing trip he comes across a strange situation and makes a peculiar discovery. After this strange discovery he then ran into the woods and took cover and from there he watched the military come out of the highway onto the streets, and with this a troubling conspiracy unravels.
The story of The White House Is Fake is thrilling as well as educational. Joseph McGee is a talented author, not only for his superb prose but also the inclusion of his knowledge; knowledge that gives reasons why he believes the conspiracy is real, etc. You may be thinking that The White House Is Fake is just another outlandish, generic, conspiracy theory written by somebody with nothing better to do and although there are many books like this, The White House Is Down is not one. This is because it is full of backed up research and findings which are all fact checked and well thought out. Of course, not every aspect of the conspiracy can be proven, but McGee does an excellent job of convincing his readers with his findings which in turn does back it up.
Joseph McGee is a man I admire thanks to his brilliant prose as well as his ability to hook me as a reader very early on. The descriptions courtesy of McGee and specific events are fascinating and had me turning the pages with haste thanks to the overwhelming and thrilling nature of this book. Not only is McGee talented at gripping his reader, but he is also talented at keeping them thrilled and entertained thanks to his many shock twists and turns that had me doubting everything I previously thought.
The White House Is Fake indeed is a thrilling, gripping story that I believe every reader should have the pleasure of reading and so I have no choice but to award this fasciating book Five Stars! So please, if you are a reader who wants to be entertained for many hours then read this incredible book!

The White House is Fake expresses our deepest concerns for the Americans. Is the government a lie and why is it hiding its truths? This book,fact-like, almost seems like reality. So what is it? Is it real or a simulation? These are the questions you will ask yourself when reading.

I like to read my books uninterrupted, when the universe takes a break and all is quite. Well that didn’t last long after I
started reading this book. This was a Non stop whirlwind adventure. I was exhausted when I was finished with this one, perhaps because I felt I was part of the adventure..
