No surprise that Christopher Buckley is a brilliant author like his father. Although very erudite, I didn't have to go to the dictionary every few sentences like I do for a WFB novel.
Clear audio and very well performed by Anne Heche. The snippet of sample audio from the book is not a good example of the quality of reading Ms. Heche brings to this book. She does the main character magnificently.
I was literally laughing aloud as I listened.
This came out in 2008 and 8 years later it is still spot on. The characters are great and the story moves along nicely. I particularly enjoyed the witty dialogue.
This book is like a movie you watch over and over. In 8 years I've listened to it at least 4 times.
A great concept given all the current TV judges. If you are willing to suspend belief and just enjoy the story it is a OK listen, despite a few trite plot lines.
I'm a fan of C.Buckley. Love how he uses irony to poke fun at government--both conservative and liberal. And Ann Heche was a surprise to me. I cannot imagine any other narrator so fully capturing our "heroine"'s essence. And she "GOT" Buckley's point of view to the letter. I'm thinking of "gifting" Ms. Sotomayer with the audio book. I'm sure she'd get a kick out of it. Sure, the legal constraints, rules, cases are all fictionalized, but that's the fun. That's the ART! Have fun with this book!
