    Unsympathetic characters in laughable scenarios

    Christopher Buckley successfully lampooned lobbyists with THANK YOU FOR SMOKING. Here the political satirist takes on presidential politics with a clever whodunit about a First Lady accused of killing her cheating husband. Like THANK YOU, none of the characters - politicians, lawyers, TV reporters - here is especially likeable or sympathetic - yet the scenarios in which they get embroiled are laughable indeed.

    Brilliant, and that's an understatement

    This book is a perfect satire on current affairs. There are pieces of the screw ups in the Clinton Administration as well as jabs at the characters, and the OJ trial as well. The ending of this book is perfect. An easy, entertaining, and brilliant effort by Chris Buckley.

    Hillarious!

    I'm shaking my head as I laugh. Just finished this romp and think SNL should do a movie-length version of it: Will Ferrel as defense attorney Boyce 'Shamless' Baylor and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Lady Bethmac (just as suggested in the book). Wonderful satire. I can't wait for the author's next book, FLORENCE OF ARABIA.

    Hilarious and highly recommended!

    If you want to have a good time at the expense of 1990's politicians, read this book. I laughed my way through it, and then ordered copies of all of the other satires Buckley has written. His dialogs are perfect, and he has a talent for tongue-in-cheek people and place names. It's a preposterous story...and yet...based on previous presidential behaviors...believable!

    just great!

    On one hand I can't wait to finish it , on the other hand I don't want to finish reading it! It's a pleasure you don't want to end. It's so funny, hilarious, may I say, and interesting and involves you in the story in a way it seems you're there watching the trial in court and on TV. Just great!

    Hilarious!

    It stired me to laughter on several occasions! I listened to the Audio version, and it was read in such an animated and amusing way!
