The explosive secret e-mails Hillary Clinton doesn’t want you to read
(Or maybe she does…She’s crafty like that.)
Remember that time Hillary Clinton admitted that she deleted thousands of e-mails from her ultra-secret personal e-mail address while Secretary of State? Thousands of e-mails, she claimed, about her daughter’s wedding? Well, people aren’t buying it: “Hiding th

If you don’t have a sense of humor, this book is most definitely NOT the choice for you. On the other hand, if you’re like me and are already a little tired of your resident Donald Trump Kool-Aid drinker’s election talk around the water cooler, this is a great selection to have sitting on top of your desk all day, every day. It’s almost as handy as a can of Troll-B-Gone – but not quite. Since The Deleted E-mails of Hillary Clinton fla

This book was hilarious! I was laughing out loud almost the whole time I was reading. I devoured this in one sitting, I literally could not put it down. The way everything was laid out was awesome and so comical. The name drops were perfection. I would recommend this book if you are in need of a laugh, because this book is light-hearted and funny!

Thanks to for sending me a copy to review!

If you have a cynical sense of humor about politics, this is a book that will admittedly probably not age very well, because its references are likely to be dated in a few decades' time and will likely require substantial footnotes, but at the same time it makes for an amusing look at the e-mail server scandal of Hillary Clinton and pokes plenty of fun of many other people as

I grabbed this book on a whim and I'm really glad I did. I wouldn't consider this book to be laugh out loud funny, but it did give me quite a few chuckles! It is absolutely ridiculous!

The Deleted E-Mails of Hillary Clinton: A Parody is EXACTLY what it sounds like. It's a satirical look at what Hillary's deleted personal emails might say. They cover everything from "possible" presidential campaigns and extravagant pantsuits to bizarre girl's trips and wedding planning. It also parodies the diffe

John Moe is at it again with his parody-style books. With the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton's (HRC) private email server and the deleted batch of emails, theories abound on what those emails could be about. Moe approaches the issue with a humorous twist, giving readers one more reason to either vote, or not vote, for her. From briefings on the small figurines club to expanding membership of the Fab Four, Hillary's life is anything but unordinary. Moe gives life to the lifeless face of ...more

The Deleted emails of Hillary Clinton is a parody book about Hillary Clinton, her time in the White House, and Wikileaks. I really enjoyed this book, even though it was such a quick read that I spent the second half of my shift at work without a book. Let's look at it star by star, shall we?

1-readability: This was an easy and quick book to read. The format for the print book is clean, organized, and uncluttered while still portraying that you're reading an email instead of huge text blocks.

Did you know that Hillary Clinton wrote Fifty Shades of Grey under the pseudonym E.L. James? Or did you know that she came up with idea of opening the borders to Cuba while playing Call of Duty: Black Ops? How about her secret career of writing for television shows such as Breaking Bad and Scandal? In this book, John Moe has made Hillary into an almost lovable human. From secret missions to stop Beyonce from taking over the world to findin

I received this book from a Good Reads giveaway. It parodies as a leak from WikiLoox that gives insight into some of the deleted messages from Presidential candidate, Hillary's personal email. The book was a quick and enjoyable read. I laughed out loud more often than I thought I would have especially since often shy away from politics.

I pretty much imagined the characters speaking in an alternate Family Guy universe. It stars several celebrities such Beyonce, Oprah, Taylor Swift, Prince and pok

The Deleted E-mails of Hillary Clinton: A Parody provides a humorous speculation of what actually when through the former Secretary of State’s inbox during her tenure. From her constant struggle to find a competent pantsuit tailor, planning her next run for president, or the eventual domination of the world by Hillary, Oprah, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Beyoncé (don’t mess with Beyoncé. Seriously. She literally controls dragons.), no matter who you’re voting for in 2016, this book will brighten up your ...more

The Deleted E-Mails of Hillary Clinton is a book that was simply put, hilarious. I loved that I could pick a e-mail chain and rad through it as one long conversation and be rolling with laughter. even if you know nothing about national or international affairs, you will appreciate the humor of conspiracy theories that are laid out for you throughout this book. I simply shook my head and kept on reading, especially when it came to Putin who got the blunt end of alot of the jokes!

A very fun and quick read -- with pages formatted to look like emails, there's a lot less text per page than a typical book so you can speed right through. I was afraid things might get obvious and repetitive, but it was brief enough that the recurring themes of pantsuits, eyeing a future presidential run (2012? No, 2016...but maybe 2012?), and world domination with the Fun Four (Hillary, Gwyneth, Oprah, and a wonderfully-voiced, power-mad Beyonce) were mined for perfect humor. Also, excellent u ...more

A quick and fun read. A bit repetitious after a while. (Yes, I got the recurring tropes, and could have used fewer repeat appearances/mentions of Prince and Beyonce.)
Moe made me laugh a good number of times, especially in the first half. The premise was a bit slim for even this very short book.
This is not the book to look to for incisive political satire. (For that, seek out Harry Shearer and his podcast, Le Show.)
Bottom line: enjoyable, but slight. Would have done better as a much shorter mag

The Deleted E-Mails Of Hillary Clinton< A Parody by John Moe is a fast and funny read whether you follow politics, or love conspiracies or just want a laugh. It includes laugh at people known internationally such as Putin. It is a parody. It is a quick read. It can be read in one sitting or in small sections but either way you will be laughing. It makes a great gift . It also is a conversational starter so is a good table book as well.

I received this book thru a Goodreads Giveaway.

This was a very fast read. The book itself is short anyway but it only took me an hour or two to read. Honestly, it would make me very happy if this is the type of thing they really found in Hillary's emails. If you enjoy John Moe and WITS, you will probably enjoy this book. It put a smile on my face.

I read this book on a 2+ hour flight and hopefully managed to keep my laughter to a barely-disguised snort. I know I was shaking my shoulders to keep it all in at times. Not all of the pages are hilarious, but there is enough fun within this book to make the hours stuck in an airplane seat fly by quickly.

light, quick read that is exactly what title suggests. Several running gags including her purported desire to be independent of any negative reputational fallout of Obama's decisions, to set herself up to run for President in '16.

probably the funniest shtick was her "Fun Four" pen pals Oprah, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce scheming and plotting

Read in 2015. I thought it was hilarious and touching....not a negative slant for a change, however, sheds light on Bill Clinton's literal absence from her life. . . Why am I reading about Hillary Clinton? . . . a search for knowledge about her as she campaigns.

Eh this was no Bob Benchley. A very light 45 minute timewaster. Was expecting this to be funnier but found most of the jokes belabored.

An amusing little humor book. The pantsuit, prince and Fab Four emails were the best. A quick read in this quirky election year.
