I listened to one for the moneyand read the next two in the series this and have to say
yes....I carried the kindle everywhere I went so I could listen at the grocery store,waiting at the bank or in the doctor's office. This book made me laugh out loud at times and teary eyed at others.
It was enjoyable to listen to and required the listener to only use minimum consentration. I like to multitask when listening and it was great to be able to do two things and still be able to follow the story and be able to really get into it. I also was able to pick up the subtle feelings of the lead character even when she was outwordly acting differently. It made for a very easy listen and kept me entertained.
I really do not do light reading usually but read more complex stories. I found this a very easy read (listen) but still very enjoyable. I was sure that I would find it superficial but it had depth of character and kept me wanting to find out more. All in all I can not compare it to anything I have read but it was fun.
Miss Plum of course!
NO but I was eager to finish it and find out the ending.
Great Fun to read (listen)!
Have not read print version
I ended up really enjoying the book & was sorry that it ended even though when I started reading I thought it was very 'corny'. I recommend listeners not to judge it until they get well into the story.
This book kept my attention from begining to end
I was never able to guess what was going to happen next
I did not have a favorite scene. I enjoyed each one equally
wanted to hear book before I saw movie
Stephanie is strangely, crazily credible. Backed into a financial corner, she chooses the least likely way to get out of trouble and gets into heaps. I was so disappointed to find that the rest of the series isn't available yet but I'll be looking out for more of Stephanie's exploits.
I have listened to One for the Money twice now, and would probably listen again. I LOVE the characters, story and reader, making this a win win combo for me.
It would depend on whether that friend would be interested in a cheesy detective novel.
The reader sounded old for the character; more like what I would expect Stephanie's mother to sound like. It interfered with my appreciation of the story.
A not too serious story of good versus evil. The heroine has a far from perfect existence, stumbling into a life of adventure. A fun and entertaining story ranking it high in my current audio book listening experience.
Stephanie Plum is the adorable, believable heroine. Most listeners can relate to a being down on their luck trying to make the best of the worst circumstances. When she finally gets a break her heroic deeds are a series of humorous, almost slapstick adventures. This book kept me listening, I wanted to finish it in a minimum of sessions.
I thought this was a good story and a light read even though there was some violence in it. The reader did a good job and it was fun.
