Up to Christopher Buckley's usual gold standard! The book was entertaining and employed a great cast of characters that were well fleshed out and easily imaginable. And Mr. Buckley was bang on with the finger poking of the boomer generation as well as the nod to the generation following us boomers. It does hit very close to home as to our current political mess of characters and the general loss of fiscal responsibility, lack of adherence to the constitutional rights we all possess, and back alley deals and money grubbing that's the soup du jour of the American political system today. The political satire was a pleasant and entertaining read for boomers and other generations.

This is not a politically correct story, but is it ever funny. As I read the various storylines, it seemed to me that much of this is coming true. Read up on "voluntary transitioning" in this book if you were born between 1946 and 1964!

An extremely poignant and appropriate plot considering the Baby Boomers are feeding off of the potential wealth of a younger generation. If you're a fan of Christopher Buckley, you'll truly enjoy the read, although the ending came and went in the blink of an eye. For more reviews follow my blog at http://gregorywells.livejournal.com/

A laugh-out-loud joy ride through life and death Washington style. Buckley keeps his story going as he skews the Social Security system, presidential deal-making and, oh my, papal bulls. There's lots more.Enjoy!
