Janet's books are pretty predictable, not that you can solve the mystery easily, but the interaction between Steph and Ranger, for example, is always the same. And way too much of it. But Lula is always unpredictable and she was laugh out loud in this one. This is the type of book that defines "light reading," and I picked it specifically for a road trip with my wife. It was perfect entertainment.
Just the dish I expected. Perfect "listen" when you just want to relax & be entertained. Characters in Evanovich's books remind you of people you may know.Ummm let me think... I don't know a Ranger or Morelli but sure would like to
Stephanie Plum is always fun. We've made it through 15 books, and she never learns. I'm getting to where I want more time with Lula. She and Grandma make a perfect pair! Janet Evanovich's books aren't literature, but don't pretend to be. The whole group of characters is "I Love Lucy" all over again. Take a break and enjoy!
Another installment in Stephanie Plum's life. There is always humor to brighten your day when reading these books. The struggle between lusting for Ranger asnd loving Morelli continues. I was disappointed with Stephanie figuring something out that Ranger didn't...that just seemed a weird plotline. But the dialogue, ridiculous-ness of the antics always make me laugh out loud. Lots of Lula in this story and that brings LARGE applause on the giggle meter. Where is Stephanie heading...I don't know, not sure I care because along the way she takes us for a short ride that may contain a bomb, car explosions, gunshot, fireworks or always a tour of the funeral home with or without grandma. It's entertainment!
Narrator is superb, changes voices and helps with the visualization.
loves husky dogs
I loved that this installment had a lot of Ranger in it. #14 had been a big disappointment to me, and this one wasn't. I enjoyed it and that the main characters filled the book (unlike #14 that had lots different characters). The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the usual "Stephanie in danger" towards the book's ending wasn't present. The mysteries just sort of ended. Beyond that, it was great and was worth the listen. But now it's another year till #16.
And Lorelei is the BEST narrator. She brings Stephanie, Lulu, Ranger, Morelli and Grandma to life.
By the time I was half way through this juvenile exercise, I was waiting for a laugh track to tell me when I should laugh. I have heard very nice things about Janet Evanovich, but I have to say, I was VERY disappointed at the seemingly never ending ridiculous series of events that pile up on Ms. Plum and her band of misfits. This was my first Stephanie Plum novel and, unless I am chained down, it will be my last.
Finger Lickin Fifteen met all of the high expectations I have when it comes to Janet Evanovich and The Stephanie Plum Series. The laughs abound with Stephanie, Grandma, Lula and the other characters we have grown to love.
Janet's ability to introduce new excentric characters in each of her novels continues in Finger Lickin and I enjoy meeting each of them. Don't pass on this series. I have read (or listened to) the entire series and love every one, often finding myself laughing out loud at the humor.
I nearly lost it listening to this book while driving to work. I was laughing so hard my sides hurt and I was crying with the laughter. This has to be the funniest book yet. I LOVE LULU! Can't wait for the next book.
