What a fun book with colorful characters, and the reader does a great job. Even the supporting characters are interesting. It's empowering to read about a tough-woman character (especially when we're allowed to hear her thinking about how unsure she is) even though it's fiction.
The author's ever growing series of 12 books about Trenton's top fictional bond enforcement agent, Stephanie Plum, starts with this abridged, light hearted introduction. Before you read the later books you must read the first two to get early character development. A fun read that kept me laughing out loud.
I love the complete series... great writer, keeps your interest and is so very funny! Fantastic to pass the time on the way to and from work each day and makes the commute fun. Hard to stop listening to go in to work.
I found this to be a very entertaining book to listen to. Made a subject that could be very dark, very humorous. C J Critt read the story very well, bringing the already colorful characters to life. A great listen on the commute to and from work!
The reader was a bad choice for this book. It's read by the same woman that played kit in "A League of Their Own". Although, she seems like a good character she's not that great at other voices and the tone seemed to remain the same throughout the book. Aside from that, there was pratically no suspense (which required no intelligence to follow along) and it didn't end leaving any desire to continue on with the series accept curiousity as to why these books are so popular.
i only listened to it because subsequent books highly rated, but now i don't know if i CAN listen to another. that accent is soooo annoying. maybe it's the reader?
