Nothing is really resolved.

Hopefully it is only loosely based, because while one can imagine a senator and his family who might be like Senator Anders McDermott II, and possibly even a family and staff like his, it is hard to imagine two grown women as immature,spineless and naive as Janet and Allison. Nothing is really resolved.

The second Allison sets foot in the prestigious Senate Russell Building, things begin to go awry

The second Allison sets foot in the prestigious Senate Russell Building, things begin to go awry. Soon, Allison and Janet find themselves at the center of one of the craziest campaigns in history, and hilarity ensues.

A light piece of fluff, but kind of a fun summer beach read, especially if you're from MN, because we all pretty much know what former MN senator the writers are referring to. The writing is amatuerish, reads more like it was written by a couple of high school girls or was taken from their diaries. It would seem like the writers' time in Washington as Capitol Hill staffers was less than a great experience and they decided to get it off their chests through this novel. If you like gossipy fluff, you might like this book, but in good conscience I could not recommend it to anyone. If you must read it, get the book at the library and don't waste your money buying it.

I can't believe I read the whole thing. Good start and then slowly stumbled down juvenile mountain. Trite, immature sexual innuendos that were NOT FUNNY. making jokes at times when no one would be joking. As another reviewer stated - it read as though a few 6th graders got together and threw some words on paper. My happiest moment - when I finished it and didn't have read anymore.

Thank God, Amen and Whoopee! The 2012 Elections are over! But for all you political junkies out there going through withdrawal, there's a new VERY FUNNY novel just for you! It's called CAPITOL HELL and it's about a gal working for a fictitious Senator based on my real-life neighbor, Minnesota Republican, Norm Coleman. Co-authors, Jayne Jones and Alicia Long worked on Coleman's 2002 Senate campaign and for several years after as DC staffers.

Those of you in the Land of Ten-Thousand Lakes will instantly recognize the fictitious Sen. Anders McDermott III, everyone else get ready for a sizzling page turner. Politics is politics anywhere you play it, especially "inside the beltway." No one ever said working on the hill was easy, but recent college graduate, Allison Amundson certainly isn't home in the Midwest anymore. She's hired as the senator's scheduler and now she belongs to whoever is calling or texting her on the campaign Blackberry 24/7/365. That includes the Senator, his staff, and family, including the nanny.

Allison's co-workers include a small circle of people whose job it is to jump, sit, run, and write and in some cases end up crying to make sure Senator Anders McDermott, III's life flows effortlessly. The McDermott office motto is "ATD," for Attention to Detail, which Allison is often reminded at various decibel levels. Allison finds comfort in fellow Midwestern co-worker and new BFF, Janet who is also shell-shocked to find she's working inside what could pass for a carnival.

This novel isn't your typical chick-lit. At one point, or actually, several, Allison tries to strike up a relationship with one of her co-workers, but that isn't possible because the only real relationship she has is with her job. Since I once was in my early 20's and had a prestigious pressure cooker position such as Allison's, I can appreciate her focusing on her career. I really enjoyed reading CAPITOL HELL, going behind the scenes and the little bit of flirting here and there was enough for me.

What about all the antics performed by the politicians, their families and even nannies? Come on, it's fiction, and it certainly provides a lot of comedy.

CAPITOL HELL is available on Amazon and B&N.com.

All in all, I enjoyed it because I once worked in local government and could identify with SO many issues the gals encountered

This book was hard for me to put down, which I unfortunately had to do several times during the reading of this book. However, every time I did all I could think about was what was going to happen next.

When I saw this book had a political backdrop I immediately expected the book to be boring and dry. As it turns out, nothing was further from the truth. While the book itself read like a novel I suspect there was at least some kernel of truth within it, which made it a real eye opener.

I wasn't expecting a cliff hanger of an ending, but that's exactly what I got. i do hope the authors are planning a book two. I can't wait to see what happens next!

I liked the book, as the characters were witty and you could relate to them.
However, I think more depth could have been used in their development.
Too many details in parts, and the book drug on and on at times.
I would say, if you want a light-hearted read and want to see Capitol Hill from an insiders perspective, read Capitol Hell.
Capitol Hell was a great read! I saw the authors on a morning show, talking about their book. It sounded interesting, which it was, so I decided to give it a read. While names and situations were changed, I'm sure, the stories that were told of how the ladies made their way to Capitol Hill, and everything that they encountered were riviting, and left me wanting more.

I highly recommend reading Capitol Hill!! It is exciting, and one of those books that you won't want to put down.
