"A wild romp of silliness and irreverence that's sure to please political junkies." (Booklist)
"This clever, gleeful satire...sets a high comic standard." (The New York Times)
Very well written. Buckley managed to keep me in stitches throughout the entire story. I will be sure to read and/or listen to more of his novels. The narrator did an excellent job as well.
The reader's voice was perfect for the deadpan humor, and the cute story kept me smiling during my commute.
If you've had your ears open and your eye on the news over the last decade, you will have fun relating Buckley's "fictional" characters to real life newsmakers. It's a terrific plot with a good pace but less than satisfying ending. Definitely a good read.
The Sisters Review
I bought this book based on the reviews saying how funny the text. I found the book intriguing, humorous and very very well written.
Although I liked the plot of a philandering dead president at the hands of a first lady who often threw objects at her husband. Not at one point did I laugh out loud hysterically.
Now my boyfriend entered the room and listened to a few minutes and he couldn't stop laughing. I couldn't hear the book he was laughing so loud and frequently. Very annoying.
The humor reminds me of Carry On Jeeves and The hitchhiker's Guide series. Mush more modern and entertaining.
I gave it 5 stars because it is so well written and I will probably read another from the author.
Had a good time with this audiobook , I definitively recommend it. In addition to that Grover Gardnes does a great job with that wonderful voice of his.
