Book Review: Supreme Courtship (Audio)

Narrated by Anne Heche

Publisher's Summary

President of the United States Donald Vanderdamp is having a hell of a time getting his nominees appointed to the Supreme Court. After one nominee is rejected for insufficiently appreciating To Kill A Mockingbird, the president chooses someone so beloved by voters that the Senate won't have the guts to reject her - Judge Pepper Cartwright, the star of the nation's most popular reality show, Courtroom Six.

Will Pepper, a straight-talking Texan, survive a confirmation battle in the Senate? Will becoming one of the most powerful women in the world ruin her love life? And even if she can make it to the Supreme Court, how will she get along with her eight highly skeptical colleagues, including a floundering Chief Justice who, after legalizing gay marriage, learns that his wife has left him for another woman?

Soon, Pepper finds herself in the middle of a constitutional crisis, a presidential reelection campaign that the president is determined to lose, and oral arguments of a romantic nature. Supreme Courtship is another classic Christopher Buckley comedy about the Washington institutions most deserving of ridicule.

My thoughts

Anne Heche does a very good job of reading this novel. I do have to warn you that drinking and listening can be hazardous to things and people around you.

Why?

It is called "spew alert"! We have had to back it up several times as we were laughing to hard to hear what she was saying. Oh, maybe you shouldn't drive and listen to this either.

Who would I recommend this audio book to?

People who like satire. People who like to laugh. People who need to laugh. Ok, ok, EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS BOOK OR LISTEN TO IT! It's really good.

This is one of my Audio.com choices.

I've listened to a book read by Anne Heche and loved it. She does very well as a reader.
