I'm glad I didn't read some of these reviews before getting this book! Sure it was far-fetched, a Mesopotamian goddess called via Google, with a temple transported to Ohio, tonic and cookies that give special powers, like the ability to understand dogs. What dog lover wouldn't love to have that!! I really enjoyed the narrator - she sounded like a Jack Russell when voicing Bailey (I have one - that's exactly what he'd sound like!) Not a deep or thought-provoking read, but enjoyable on a long road trip. If you want to let your imagination run wild, don't listen to the nay-sayers - get in touch with your own Goddess!
The storyline was fun and magical (Like the Unfortunate Miss Fortunes), the characters interesting and the romance was hot, but the story dragged in places and I got bored with it in the middle. Had a great ending and was worth listening to if you're looking for an unusual, fun story. I still think Jennifer Crusie does her best work on her own or with Bob.
HA! HA! A Mesopotamian temple reconstructed in two parts in Ohio? The Goddess called back to Earth by thousands Googling a misspelled celebrity name. So yes, bring on the plagues, swarms and floods. The best part is always hearing dogs talk...remember "Look who's talking now?"
It is still funny just thinking about this story in order to write this review. :)
I was a complete Jennifer Crusie fan until she moved from beautiful prose and entertaining humor to this silly romance genre. This one is particularly stupid!
