Down to Earth and Right on Target
How to Convict a member of the Mob without really trying.
Thank you, Lisa Scottoline. Not only are her books interesting, suspenseful, and fun but she makes me laugh out loud! What a great sense of humor! Cochranville, PA loves her books.
This book started out really interesting, and then took a turn. I listened to it all because I paid for it, but unfortunately the main character was annoying to me, she was such a doormat! But the reader was really, really good!
I loved listening to this book! As a born and raised Jersey girl, this was like going home again. My only issue were the slight issues with the author being consistent in the story. It's hard to remember the details, but if you listen you'll see what I mean. It does not take away from the story or the narrator at all. Wonderful!
I enjoyed this book even if some of the parts were a bit of a stretch. The one thing that I did not not enjoy was the narrator. I know they were trying to give the appropriate accent to go with the story, but they ended up sounding like they smoked 2+ packs a day. It was distracting the entire book to have the lead female character in her 30s sound so horrible. I would not get anything this person narrates again.
I do a lot of audio books and this one definately belongs in the bottom 5%. The plot is thin, poorly developed and highly improbable. The characters bare no resemblance to any one might encounter in the real world. I will never buy another book by this author.
I loved the narration of this book. In fact, that's what kept me going. I realize the author is beloved, but so much of the plot seemed to rest on really stupid decisions by the characters, especially the main character who put herself in incredibly dangerous positions and was so impulsive. Actually, a speech by Benny/Bennie at the end was right on point...that she was too impulsive to be a reliable partner...but that was after hours of listening to Mary and The Girls acting brainless...most of the time.
