Book Review: The White House Mess
Another wonderful effort by Christopher Buckley. For those of you who watched 'Thank You For Smoking', yes, he does actually write books. This one makes for a good summer week read, as it isn't overly long and the Penguin Books printing of it is just the right size for easy pocket carrying. While reading it I found myself luaghing out loud at what seemed to be utterly ridiculous and improbable events in the nation's seat of power. Later, I found myself uncomfortable with the notion that, given the current state of events in our country, most of the book may be way too close to reality. So for a quick (224pgs), amusing, and yet slightly disturbing view of the goings on at 1600 Pennslyvania Avenue, pick this one up for your summer reading list.
