Sneaky Pie for President: A Mrs. Murphy Mystery, Book 21 | [Rita Mae Brown]

Sneaky Pie for President: A Mrs. Murphy Mystery, Book 21

With help from her friends - the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell - Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the tradition of her heroine, Sojourner Truth, she takes her case to the masses. Journeying from the lair of the red-shouldered hawk to the nest of the tufted titmouse, from a pasture full of curmudgeonly cows to the stately halls of Monticello, the tenacious tiger cat even secures the chattering support of Thomas Jefferson’s mice.

Publisher's Summary

With help from her friends - the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell - Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the tradition of her heroine, Sojourner Truth, she takes her case to the masses. Journeying from the lair of the red-shouldered hawk to the nest of the tufted titmouse, from a pasture full of curmudgeonly cows to the stately halls of Monticello, the tenacious tiger cat even secures the chattering support of Thomas Jefferson’s mice. Mice backing a cat for president? Yes, we can!

Now, if Sneaky can get the animal community to band together for the common good, why not the humans? After all, who better to get the economy purring again than an honest tabby with authentic political stripes? Human candidates have had their chance in Washington, with dubious results of late: Nowhere does it say in the Constitution that the president cannot be a cat.

    "Not a Mrs. Murphy Book"
    What would have made Sneaky Pie for President better?

    The blurb indicated it was a Mrs Murphy story, it is not. I would never have purchased this had I known that up front. I love Mrs Murphy and the interaction between the animals and humans. This is the worst Rita Mae Brown book I have read, and I have read most of her fiction works including Venus Envy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rita Mae Brown again?

    yes.


    What does Kate Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kate Forbes always does a good job on the Rita Mae Brown books she reads

    "This is a political commentary."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone looking for political commentary, not a mystery.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rita Mae Brown again?

    Yes, but not in this genre.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Never finished it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and a bit of anger that this was billed as a Sneaky Pie mystery. I kept listening for the story line--there is none, just commentary by the usual Sneaky Pie characters. Not at all what I was looking for.

    Story
    "Very Unlike Sneaky"
    What disappointed you about Sneaky Pie for President?

    I wanted a good Sneaky Pie mystery, not a political diatribe on the issues facing us today. I can get those anywhere and listen to the books on my way to and from work when I want to forget about the world today.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm listening to the Women's Murder Club by James Patterson


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Just the way it was read wasn't lively.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was thoroughly disappointed in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Stick to writing about mysteries. That's what I buy the books for.

    Any additional comments?

    Nowhere in the description does it tell you there is not story here - just the standard left wing script of whines and complaints told by the animals. I love the Crozet series but this is enough to turn me off from the books forever.

    "Awful awful awful"
    What would have made Sneaky Pie for President better?

    Having a story not a political commercial


    What was most disappointing about Rita Mae Brown’s story?

    This was not a story all in the animals voice


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money or a credit. I listened to the whole thing hoping for an improvement

    Story
    "Ridiculous and foolish. What a disappointment!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I wasn't expecting a satirical political novel after reading the other Sneaky Pie novels. I wish the title wasn't so misleading, because I wouldn't have purchased this book!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rita Mae Brown again?

    I'm worried that the long-winded political soapbox speeches will carry forward. If we can get back to the fun mysteries, I'll try again.


    What three words best describe Kate Forbes’s performance?

    Hard to judge because the story was so bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, and frustration. Misled and cheated.


    Any additional comments?

    If the author wants to try another genre, please don't mislead your readers into purchasing the book by linking the title to your other series.

    "Awful -- don't waste a credit on this"

    Kate Forbes can't save this one. I usually can persevere through an audiobook -- but on this one I'm bailing, while holding the white flag over my mouth & nose.

    "Not a mystery"

    Dissapointing - This is no mystery but a political statement. I loved this series with Mrs. Murphy. But I missed her! Well, I cannot tell for sure if she ever appeared in this book, because I got out after an hour or so.
    This Volume should not be set in the Series of Mrs. Murphy. It should be the first one in the 'co-author' Sneaky Pie Brown
