This book is VERY SUSPICIOUSLY just as good as the first one and its only flaw is why is it not longer and also why are there no more Smek books who could do this to me??? Much like the first book, this one starts off a little slow but stick around because the beginning builds a sturdy platform for all the hoverbutts to follow.

Although I didn't like this book as much as the True Meaning of Smekday it still was a fun read.

After the first book, this volume felt like an afterthought. The stakes are just so much lower, and the characters seem to be retreading old ground. Disappointing.

Definitely an excellent sequel to the True Meaning of Smekday! I loved this book!

I chose to listen to the audio recording of Smek for President since I'd heard such good things about Bahni Turpin's reading, and that was an excellent decision--she is brilliant. I made sure to have a physical copy of the book at hand so I could see Rex's illustrations and graphic novel sections after I heard them. It took me a bit to warm up to the book, though. I'm not sure if I read the first book so long ago that I'd forgotten just what to expect, if it took Rex a bit of time to find his flow with the story, or if it's one of those stories that just needs a little time to get going, but I wasn't blown away by the early proceedings. However, by the time I was halfway through I was loving it every bit as much as the original Smekday. And, like with that book, it's hard to find a way to adequately describe the appeal and fun. The humor ranges from silly and slapstick to subtle and sublime to sophisticated and cerebral. The references range from pop culture to nerd obscure. The satire and social commentary range just as far. It's a middle-aged white male giving voice to a teenaged black girl and an alien. Often it seems completely random, yet it completely works. It is a sequel worthy of its original and I recommend it just as much.
