I am abandoning this book, this series, and mostly likely any further books by this author. I am so disappointed that Rita Mae Brown's works of fiction have become nothing more than a vehicle for her disjointed libertarian rants that have NOTHING to do with any story's plot. Just the absolute worst.

It's ok but the plot is tidied up a bit too hastily and the constant political ranting about taxes got on my nerves. ( )

The Cat of the Century, the 18th in the line of Sneaky Pie Browne mysteries, concerns, as usual, murder.

I enjoyed the plot-line part of this mystery, as always--a little light and not too hard to figure out who did it, but enjoyable.

I am coming more and more to object, however, to the endless preaching of Rita Mae Brown on whatever her current political agenda happens to be. This book was by far the worst in that respect, and while I think it's proper as an author to include your own political/environmental/criminal justice/racial/gay agendas, to name but a few, after awhile it gets real old. Especially as each view is not integrated into the plot, but takes the form of a diatribe given by whatever character comes to hand.

I hope Ms. Brown tones down her soap-box preaching in future novels, or I'll have to start thinking about whether it's worth the effort (and boredom) to read them. ( )

Good story, way too much of the author jamming her personal opinion about taxes into the mouths of her human characters. ( )

Good series, but not the best one in it.
