Review: Dog Days

Dog Days by Ana Marie Cox

This novel was written by the author of Wonkette - a blog I try and read as often as I can. This novel is clearly geared towards folks who understand Washington a bit more (you know, folks who read Drudge or Instapundit, watch The West Wing, have an interest in politics - you know, me, basically), but want a chick lit fix.

I was disappointed. The plot was thin, the characters weren't terribly likeable or fleshed out, and it seemed to steal from other political novels - Washingtonienne and Primary Colors, for example. Sure, I loved the Washington setting and all the manuevering, but overall, it didn't do much for me.

This might be a good Washington guilty pleasure, but I'd rather read Cox's blog than her fiction...
