I've long wanted to read some Christopher Buckley, so when I found a mint-condition hardcover copy of Supreme Courtship for a dollar at the library sale, buying it was a no-brainer.
I laughed out loud at certain parts - there are definitely funny scenes in this novel and some very funny dialog. But taken as a whole I wasn't particularly impressed. I've had to think long and hard about why this is, and I finally came to the following conclusion:
Modern American politics and most modern American politicians disgust me and I wouldn't be at all surprised if most of what I read in this book actually happened. This was moderately depressing to me - instead of satire, it was almost real. And this is why the entire book sat somewhat uncomfortably with me.
I guess I'd say this is a four star book if you're optimistic about the current political situation, three stars if you're not.
