I have been a fan for number of years and I have read all of her Stephanie Plum series. This was more of the same with no surprises. I think it is time to allow Stephanie to pick a life mate and retire the series. Janet Evanovich is a very funny writer and i have laughed outloud reading some of her books in this series. I will try another series and I am sure that I will be laughing again!
I will not be buying anymore Stephanie Plum book--unless it indicates that she finally marries!!
Very realistic--just like I think it should be.
On its own-probably. But since I have read all 18 of the previous novels--not so much.
High on the enjoyment list...just plain fun, light and entertaining.
Not really, the plots of these books are not real good mysteries but I am OK with that because I enjoy the characters.
No, I listened over a few days, spread out the fun. It isn't a page turning thriller that you want to gobble up all at one time. Trite expression, it is what it is, and I enjoy that and look forward to the next book.
YES. THE STORY LINE WAS GREAT AND ENTERTAINING. lOREILEI KING, READS VERY WELL. HOLDS YOUR INTEREST. GREAT CHARACTER VOICES.
Of course Loula,
I would recommend this book, author, and reader. As an Arts and Crafter, which I work with my hands, it's important to me to have a good book and reader while I am working. My Granddaughter has work with me for 3 years, she loves the books.
I have read/listened to all of the Stephanie Plum series and was excited to listen to this one. It was an easy listen but not much different than her last few books.
Notorious Nineteen is right along with the last three books in the Stephanie Plum series...Just Okay. No big thrills here.
I like all of the numbered Janet Evanovich books. They are fun and very entertaining. Stephanie is like a grown up, contemporary Ann of Green Gables, always getting in trouble, but never on purpose. I have an extra set of the series in paperbacks, that I use to introduce reading to non-readers; works every time. I have enjoyed listening to the Stephanie Plum series while I travel. I get to laugh a lot and I really look forward to my daily traveling just so I can hear the stories. Sometimes, I don't even want to get out of the car. What I like best is that there is just not one story line in a book, there are usually quite a few, but they all come together in the end. Janet's characters are a hoot!
Yes, I would listen to this book again. I did like the story line it was funny. I enjoyed the book very much.
My favorite charactor was the Tiki.
I like when Tiki talked to Stephanie and Lula.
Grandma Bella cursing Stephanie was funny.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
People who like cheap, inarticulate writing.
Language and story line is degrading into trivia.
No, Janet had lost her edge.
The last 3 to 4 books are degrading to women and make older people look vain and full of guile.
Reading / listening to Stephanie Plum books is like catching up with the crazy basket case you went to high school with. When you hear from her you get an earful of the same insanity, the same repeated mistakes and the same unresolved issues. You are essentially a dumping ground for someone who will never go anywhere. The only reason you put up with it is that you are not expected to do anything for or about your nutso friend, and also she is usually amusing.
That being said, these are getting old. Very old.
If you miss a Stephanie Plum book, or a phone call from your crazy friend, you’re not missing anything.
I will probably keep listing just for the pure undemanding escapism, but I suppose that will only last until I have better things to do with my time than drive cross-country.
I liked that Ranger played a larger part in this story, although I’m unhappy that he is continually marginalized by Morelli—the appeal of whom I really do not see. I think maybe it is time for Evanovich to write two # 20s. One for Morelli fans, finishing that story up, and one for Ranger fans. Then maybe she can take some time off and come up with a new story.
yes bc it is well performed with different "voices" and the story is funny
less of the childish "american" sex... But I guess that is why a lot of readers reat it :) Myself like grandma mazur and Lula.
Laughed out loud a couple of times. Some seriously good oneliners
