    1. It is a rare thing where an author of fiction is given free reign with a book, but Rita Mae Brown isn't a typical author. She's both critically acclaimed, primarily for her novel Rubyfruit Jungle, and commercially successful with her Mrs. Murphy mysteries. The combination of her critical and commercial success allowed her to write this book, a spleen-venting screed on the current political climate, using many characters from her mystery novels.I typically read Brown's mystery novels as an escape [...]


    2. This was Rita Mae Brown's (or should I say Sneaky Pie Brown's) political manifesto. The two Browns have a complicated political philosophy and cannot be pigeonholed neatly. It's like a recipe:Add one part Tea Party (income tax is unconstitutional)Add one part Liberal (the other party is anti-sex/gay)Add one part Libertarian (government needs to get out of the way)Add one part Green (man is ruining nature)Stir and one will have a nuanced political philosophy gained by years of experience.It is wo [...]


    3. This novel was very much what I anticipated as I pre-ordered it. A beautifully expressed neutral opinion about the current political scene as we enter the final months of this 2012 election year.I knew Sneaky Pie Brown (co-author) of the wonderful Mrs. Murphy murder mystery series, would give us her particular viewpoint of the issues that truly do concern the human population and animal world. This book covers the economy not only from emotional state but with hard, cold, and well researched num [...]


    4. This is not a Mrs. Murphy mystery, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was happy to find out that it was just as, if not more, enjoyable.The narrator is not the character we know from the Mrs. Murphy novels, instead, it is the co-author, Sneaky Pie herself. Rita Mae Brown, referred to as "C.O." or "Can Opener" also makes an appearance, although she is not a big part in the story.I say this is not a Mrs. Murphy mystery. It is not actually a mystery at all. I guess I would classify it as simply a n [...]


    5. when I picked this book up at the library it was billed as a mystery. I enjoy the Sneaky Pie mysteries as an escape, especially if I've just read a really complicated plot type of book, but this one is definitely on my list of "step away from the book". After reading come of the other comments on , I think the best description is a diatribe of facts and figures that will not stand the test of time. I understand that this was probably intended to comment on the political system in the US but it w [...]


    6. What an odd little book! I like the Sneaky Pie mysteries and I (mostly) agree with Brown's politics, but I just couldn't figure out the point of this book. Mixing the fictional characters with real ones just confused me. If it were shorter, I would call this a fable with a decidedly political moral. At this length, I just found the diatribe boring -- nothing new, nothing especially witty, just the all-too-obvious conclusion that given the choices offered by our current political system, even a c [...]


    7. I enjoyed this book very much. It isn't Sneaky Pie's usual mystery! But she becomes a Cat with a Cause! I did find it even more improbable that's the usual mysteries, but it fascinated me. The remote possibility of making changes in our elected official's Impact on our country almost seems possible!!


    8. I have read all the books in this series. This book was a disappointment. I couldn't get past the first 10 pages. The conversations between the characters were trite and boring. I had looked forward to a good murder mystery and it turned into a strung together series of conversations between the characters on disjointed topics.


    9. Rita Mae Brown published this in 2012 before the U.S. presidential election. A thought-provoking fun read. Every candidate needs to have an animal-friendly as well as people-friendly agenda. Sneaky Pie is a candidate who listens, and learns.


    10. While not a Mrs. Murphy/Pewter/Tee Tucker mystery, this book was interesting and a fun read. It seems that Ms. Brown and her novel counterpart, Harry Harristen, have much in common in the things that count. I thoroughly enjoyed it.




    11. Fun! A great way to take your mind off people politics. I'm just about convinced to vote for Sneaky Pie! Find out what animals really think of us!


    12. After enjoying so many visits with Harry's pets and their "friends" I was sorely disappointed with this preachy tome.


    13. A delightful spin on animal farm. Covers a lot of issues and problems with have today with funny antics of my favorite animals. It was an enjoyable book.


    14. very disappointed - one of the very few books that I start and not finish. This is not a mystery but the authors political views.




    15. This plot-less book reads like animals voicing Google searches. A mish-mash of random facts and smug opinions. I am a Rita Mae Brown fan, but recommend waiting for the next mystery.



    16. I'm sure our favorite literary tiger cat is in there somewhere, since the book is subtitled "A Mrs. Murphy Mystery", but I didn't get far enough to encounter her. Although I agree with Ms. Brown's views I didn't find this book either readable or entertaining. I returned it.






    17. I tried to read this, but it didn't catch my attention . I was disappointed. I don't give up on a book easily, but this is one of the rare ones.




    18. Bought this book because of the nifty cover and because of my idle interest in US presidential elections. Plus, cat.But oh boy. The characters were fine, and their day-to-day interactions were always great. It's the plot that left me unfulfilled. Mostly because it basically doesn't exist.So here's this cat, and she wants to be President of the United States. Uhhhhh, right. Since this is a real-life-based setting, the chances of this plan going just about anywhere are basically zero, right?BUT IN [...]


    19. Sneaky Pie ist für seine Spürnase bekannt. Daher habe ich in diesem Buch bis zum Schluss auf ein mysteriöses Geheimnis gewartet. Doch Sneaky Pie for President ist eher ein gesellschaftliches Statement, weil das reale Leben selbst schon ein einziges verwirrendes Geheimnis mit unzähligen Komplikationen sein kann. Dennoch bin ich Seite um Seite besten unterhalten worden. Die Ideen und Gedanken, die sich die liebenswerte Katze um das Thema Wahl macht, sind sehr witzig. Ganz nebenbei enttarnt Sne [...]
