Plum books are formulaic and are really just a fun way to pass the time. Ranking them against literary works of art would be unfair. As far as guilty pleasure formula books go though, Plum books are my favorite, and 19 is one of the better ones.
There is a slight break from formula in 19. We get a little more insight into Stephanie and there was a brief moment when I thought the author would add a little more depth to the Ranger character.
It's always grandma.
Tiki. He told me to write that.
Among the books in this series, this was a pretty good one.
The hospital and clinic scenes were very well drawn.
She is so good as Stephanie that I'm sure we can't imagine anyone else doing the reading. She captures the flavor of the books and all the characters, including the men. (Ba-a-abe!)
How about Ranger and Morelli?
Yes, it is totally entertaining, a laugh out loud listen!!!
Very good interpretation, the voices very good.
I love the humor, I really enjoy both reading and listening to the books!
First time audible user. I thought listening to this book rather than reading is great! It passes the time when stuck in traffic. Now the book itself was boring. The same storyline...car blowing up, intense emotional feelings between Moreli and Stephanie or Stephanie with Grainger. It was just getting boring. There is no suspense, mystery, funny or storyline.
No. I will read other genre.
No...the movie they did called Money on #1 series did not do so well either.
Sure. It's worthwhile if you like Janet Evanovich.
I can't remember. It's been a while since I listened to it.
She's just a good character builder.
Probably not. Too much happens in the book.
lover of good books
This was one of her better ones. She's back! Like the other reviewers, I wish it was a longer story.
I'm a big fan of the Plum books but this one isn't worth the time. There was no romance, no action and no Joyce Barnheart. Maybe 20 will be better.
Say something about yourself!
Just good fun.
It is always good sometimes to just kick back, laugh and enjoy a Stephanie Plum novel. No stress, no fuss and you don't have to do a lot of heavy thinking. All you have to do is follow her from one burning car to the next and enjoy the witty dialog. Just keep them coming.
Lorelei King's performance is always hilarious. She adds so much to any book she reads. I sometimes wonder how she is able to be so on target with all the voices.
Lookout! Here comes Stephanie.
Yes. It is good light-hearted fun and completely entertaining
I end up liking them all. Each character is unique!
I love her range. She is one of the best narrators by far
Ranger. Do you really have to ask
I have not found any of Janet Evanovich's books lacking. I don't general enjoy this type of book, but was very pleasantly surprised with the authors sense of humor and imagination. Listening to her books is pure entertainment. I have listened to the entire series. Janet E. is the type of author who writes books that men should read. Joe and ranger know what a woman wants and needs
