I tried but can't get through this book. I think the story line is unbelievable and the narration is bad. Grandma's voice is enough to make me turn it off alone. I give up. Moving on to something else.
This is so not up to Evanovich. Quite possibly the worst of the 15. If you like fart jokes, you may love this one.
She has reduced Ranger to a one dimensional character and Joe barely exists. I would suggest you read almost anything but this one.
I have come to love this series, and each June look forward to a new guilty pleasure quick read. The predictibility, increasing profanity, and lack of anything new this year is as disappointing as the "between the numbers" books. I am moving on!
I read some other reviews that said this was better than fourteen, they were lying. I'm pretty sure Ms. Evanovich is just having her assistant write these books at this point. There's no conflict anymore, the characters aren't doing anything interesting or new and I only finished listening to it because I was stuck in a car for many, many hours.
Have been listening for over a decade and found Audible to be the best!!
The story was not that good. There were times that the characters were funny but the reader did not do what could have been done with the dialog. I would not recommend the book.
I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan and have read all her books but was really disappointed in "15". What happened to Lula and Tank's engagement? When is the plot going to move on? The relationships are still the same. Joe or Ranger, Ranger or Joe? Stephanie still doing the same old thing. I was hoping for a little progression in the story line.
I thought that this would be a good, fun, light summer read. I couldn't get past chapter 5. The narrator was a big part of the problem - her character voices were so poor that I couldn't bear to listen. She poorly rendered caricatures of people. The writing & trite dialogue didn't help either. It kills me that I paid $15.00 for this. What a HUGE disappointment!
I've never taken the time to review a book before but this one had me laughing out loud at the grocery store. I listened to it twice (back to back) because I was afraid I may have missed something. It was just as funny the second time. Thanks for making me laugh.
Tired of her playing head games with Ranger, either make a decision girl for one or the other. Otherwise it had some funny spots to it, think it is more like Lula series now than Plum series.
The Sisters Review
I totally enjoy the series and have read the Stephanie Plum series a couple of times. Finger Lickin Fifteen is both funny and tantalizing. After reading the book I didn't feel satisfied-- I wanted more. It is a frustrating feeling but shows how the series is well written.
