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.
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!
Evanovich included the humor we've come to expect but not the twist of mystery that keeps her readers in suspense. There was very little sexual tension as Morelli was mostly off limits in this book and Ranger held at far enough at bay that there wasn't even a chance of romance- truly disappointing. This book is mostly held together with cliches of the other books - nothing new that moves the series forward.
yes i would recommend this book cant wait to hear the next book, just love to hear the differece characters
stepahine in the hot dog suit
lula was my favorite in this book
Revisiting the cast of characters--feels like "checking in" with old pals.
I liked that Stephanie's disasters were relatively minimal.
Hard to say.
Naw. These stories don't often bring up tender emotions. But I often laugh out loud.
These stories are a delight & Loreli King is my favorite reader of this series.
Fun, Easy listening
That I laughed while I listened.
Not sure just enjoyed it all!
I am waiting for another book to come out, as I have read/listened to all of hers.
I love the narration! She's the best! Lula had me giggling in the middle of the night. The tense sexual interaction with Ranger is incredibly alluring. And Moreli is very sexy.
Yes, didn't know what Stephanie, Lula and Grandma Mazure would come up with next!
When Lula fluffed and fainted when her precious Firebird blew up.
Yes, and I did. I didn't sleep all night.
Janet, keep them coming.
Stephanie needs to move on! Her indecision between Ranger and Morelli is old, and the quality of her plots has grown stale since the days of One for the Money. I still enjoy the characters, but I am disappointed in the lack of effort on the part of the author. I would love to see Stephanie make a decision about the men, maybe add some depth to Lula, SOMETHING to breathe some fresh air into this series.
The Stephanie Plum books begon the downward spiral around #8, but I held on with the hope that they would get better. The pain of listening to #15 has left me saying enough is enough. I believe Janet has reduced these books to a-fill-in-the-blank, where she simply changes the names of Stephanie's skips. Character growth in this book included the addition of fart jokes. Wow... Then there is the narration. Lorelei King's range is limited, so everyone beyond the core charaters have roughly the same voice or sound borderline mentally challenged. Don't waste your money/credits on this one.
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.
