Hope Never Dies Reviews
This is campy as hell, no doubt about that. Containing some amazing moments such as (slight spoilers):
(view spoiler)[An intense fight on a train
Obama on a unicorn
A very dramatic “GET DOWN, MISTER PRESIDENT”
The former POTUS wielding a sawed off shotgun
And a whole lot of Joe being slick as shit in a sweet pair of Ray-Ban aviators (hide spoiler)]
Would totally recommend.
* Thanks, Netgalley!
Is this book 100% Barack Obama and Joe Biden fanfic where they solve crimes together in a sweet-ass car? Yes, it is. I love Quirk Books as a publishing company because they publish the weird, quirky shit that other people wouldn't think of. Like who would have gone "oh hey, now that Obama/Biden are out of the White House, let's write a book about them?" Andrew Shaffer, that's who.
This was a fun book. It was engaging. I can't attest to how well the author sticks to the personalities of Obama and ...more
Thanks to the publisher for providing a free review copy.
When I saw the cover of this book, it cracked me up and I just had to read it. It’s a lightweight and quick read, but I was surprised to find that as mysteries go, it’s not bad.
But the main appeal is that it’s told from the point of view of Joe Biden. I don’t know the guy in real life, but I think we all have an idea of what he’s like and Andrew Shaffer pegs that. Biden wears his heart on his sleeve, he’s corny and old-fashioned—and he ta ...more
It was the picture that hooked me.
The book got mentioned a few weeks ago in the New York Times book reviews. For half a second I thought it was the Obama memoir; a closer look showed not, but then I wanted to buy it. It could be terrible but I bought it for a vacation read.
That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.
And--it was fun!
The author is a pro. By that I mean his quips and word plays and dialogue and pretty decent characterizations flow out of him. He's easy to follow. He did his res ...more
I mean, it was Barack Obama and Joe Biden in a murder-mystery-action-thriller. I got exactly what I expected and I loved it.
I think if you're going to write a murder mystery wherein the former president of the United States and his hetero lifemate VP solve a murder you've gotta go big or go home. I either want to be laughing my ass off or bowled over by just how accurate the characters are.
Alas neither was the case with this very tepid, relatively well plotted mystery that paints Obama and Biden as a sort of old married couple on the outs. Barack hasn't called since the end of their stint in the Whitehouse and Joe ( ...more
An interesting mystery. I enjoyed the relationship between Obama and Biden more than the actual case.
