Hope Never Dies Reviews
This is just 1000% camp-y fan fiction. Don't read too much into it. Like there were points in the book where I was like, "Obama/Biden would never say/do/act like that" but then I would shake it off and just keep on keeping on. The mystery is fine, nothing really to write home about.
Also, someone give this cover designer a raise.

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
Hooked by the amazing description and cover, I was just a little disappointed by this - it ended up being a little too campy for my taste. Also, there were a lot of moments, particularly in the beginning, where Barack and Joe's characterizations just didn't feel right to me. The plot is fast-paced and fun, but wildly unrealistic. Ah, but it was a lovely distraction. Was trying to decide between 2 or 3 stars and am leaning towards two right now..
*Thank you to NetGalley for this!
United States Presidents find many things to occupy their time once they leave office. Jimmy Carter builds homes for the needy. George W. Bush paints portraits of veterans in lavish colors and thick brushstrokes. Bill Clinton formed a foundation to smuggle cocaine, launder bribes from the Muslim Brotherhood, make a tidy profit hocking QAnon tie-dyed T-shirts, and promote the Canadian hard-rock band Nickelback. And Millard Fillmore collected bobble head dolls of his favorite sports heroes and suf ...more
It’s the day after the elections. As a friend just recently told me, “We live in a weird state.” It’s true: Ohio is weird. We elected Sherrod Brown to the U.S. Senate with 53.2% of the votes (yay!), but we somehow elected Mike Dewine as governor with 50.7% of the votes. (WTF?)
But I don’t think Ohio is unique. If anything, it’s a microcosm of the schizophrenic nature of the entire United States. We want to elect good people, and sometimes we do, but we also---accidentally?---elect assholes like ...more
I have always wanted to read a book in which Barack Obama and Joe Biden team up to solve a mystery. I just didn't know it until I saw this book.
It was exactly the bittersweet catharsis I'd hoped, although Obama's character wasn't as recognizable as I would have wished. I think he's warmer than the reserved version described here. Joe's pretty great, though, if a little bit overly emotional. The mystery itself is perfectly serviceable, too. I'll read the sequel if there is one.

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.
Have you ever wondered what the President and Vice President do after they leave office? I bet it is not this which is what makes this so much fun! Told from Joe Biden's point of view as he and our former President try to solve a mysterious death. The situations they get themselves into will have you laughing out loud as you can't turn the pages fast enough to read what happens next. My only complaint is it ended too soon. I hope there will be more adventures for these two!
