Clinton, then Carter

Having finished Clinton's epic volumes I am embarking on a book by Jimmy Carter. It's historical fiction, called Hornet's Nest. Emphasis on "historical". The "fiction" part is a convenient means to an end: educating us about what our country was like prior to the revolutionary war. Carter writes fluidly, much more naturally than Clinton, but he's no novelist, at least not from what I've read so far. I find it easy to read so will keep on and will probably learn a thing or two in the process. But am unlikely to devine much about Carter himself through it - as one does, usually, when reading fiction.
