Reader's inhallations are definitely audible. Voices are poorly done. Almost ruined a fun series.
Hoping for a new Narrator
i was told by a co-worker to read this and i couldn't put it down. i enjoyed how colorful the characters are and the picture both the author and the narrator creates.
READ the book
Narrator had no emotion. She actually sounded silly. And spoke WAY too fast
Will never use this narrorator again
I love the whole series...but I had forgotten how the characters developed over time...especially Ranger.
The comical parts of this book made me LOL
I would recommend this book as a weekend or 1 week read. I knew that there were a lot of books in this series, however, this one didn't leave me wanting more.
My favorite scenes were with the main character's grandmother, she is a hoot. The best and most realistic characters were Ramirez and the hookers.
I can't say, because I haven't read the print book.
My favorite character, of course, was Stephanie Plum. She's plucky, raunchy, honest, and hilarious.
C. J. Critt's narration brought the conversations to life. Her interpretation of the various characters was understated but sufficient to tell them apart. Women can't imitate men's voices convincingly, and C. J. Critt didn't try, but I could still understand immediately who was speaking.
The story was interesting enough that, if I'd had the time, I could have listened to it all in one sitting. Life intervenes, however, so I listened in two-hour chunks.
This is the first Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich. I enjoyed listening to it, and I plan to continue with the series.
Loved the entire book, plenty of LOL moments. Can't wait to listen to more from the Stephanie Plum series.
Stephanie; what a trooper, you just gotta love her!
This would be a go to series to fall back on if I didn't have anything else to listen to. The reader was good, story was entertaining, however, the mystery wasn't too difficult to figure out by about 1/2 through the book.
My mother started reading these sometime when I was in high school, and I can remember we would be sitting there and all of a sudden she would just bust out laughing while reading these books. I have heard both good and bad about this series but dedided to check it out for myself.
I really enjoyed the storyline of this book, it was refreshing to have a story with a plot that actually had a climax of excitment. I did not have many of the "bent over laughing" moments, but my sense of humor is different from some people, and can say that most of the funny content did make me smirk with appreciation for the humor.
I appreciate that the narrator actually had the appropriate accent for the characters, but I would have liked to hear her have more voice changes as characters spoke. She did to some extent, but they were not significant enough of a difference to really distinguish the characters from each other.
Overall it was a good listen. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different than what they typically listen to. (It doesnt really fit in with the mystery category, and is still different from comedy and humor)
Very entertaining and flows great. Character development is excellent.
Stephanie Plum is my fave character. She's a bounty hunter who finds herself in very odd situations and is not at all smooth.
She did an excellent job. The nuances she portrays comes through.
The first chapter sets the stage for the whole series. It's hilarious!
