I have read all 18 books and loved them, but I thought ths one lacked the fun and excitement of her other books. It was predictible and tedious at times. Her car blows up again, and she and LuLu pig out again - same story over and over again. I feel like Janet is running out of material and Stephanie is not progressing as a character. She has not make a decision about which man she wants - Ranger or Moreli. Both are hot, but come on - pick one or just be greedy and keep both!! Of couse, I'll listen to the next book, as I'm too hooked on the sereis to quit, but I hope the next book has some original content next time.
Yes. Fun and interesting. Mysteries are seldom fun reading.
Previous Evanovich books.
She can make the characters "come to life".
The reader makes the characters come alive!
Ive listen to 60% of the series within the last month. You get used to the way the story goes.
She is so totally awesome. She could read the Constitution and it would be reveling.
I would recommend it for the light reading and "no-brainer" content.
I liked the plot since there were several things happening at once. This is definitely not the same plot The author has used before, but the antics do repeat themselves.
I think the plot lends itself well to a movie.
I'm a big fan of the Stephanie Plum series and enjoy reading the light, uncomplicated plot lines in between other novels which are more cerebral. I've always enjoyed the continuity of going from one to the next and always knowing who is who. Unfortunately, what bogs this book down is its constant explanation of who is who, who lives where, and telling the new reader the connections that exist between characters. It is definitely a stand-alone book, not dependent upon the others to get the gist, but I already know the gist and grew tired of being reminded.
The characters only get better and better. Janet Evanovitz keep the stories fresh and interesting.
Stephanie Plum is still my favorite. Things just seem to happen to her and she never gives up. Its always a game to see how many cars she'll lose in any one book.
She's an old friend now and has her performance down to a T. She is perfect for the series.
I always laugh out loud at least once every book. We were at a football game and I was reading one of the series on my iPhone and started laughing out loud. My husband thought I ws crazy until I told him what I was reading.
The wait for the next installmernt is always hard. I truly look forward to the next one and hope for the next one and hope she doesn't stop.
No, because I found the reader a little silly when she tried to do the men's voices, as well as Stephanie's. She didn't sound at all like she was from New Jersey, which would have been fine, but coupled wit the fact that she tried so hard to sound like all of the men (from NJ or not) was a distraction for me & took away from the book
It is right up there with the other 18 Stephanie Plum novels. Love them
Maybe Janet Evanovich or me!
It made me laugh
Love all of Janet Evanovich's books-not just the Plum novels. She is a great writer
Love the voices, like listening to old friends
Laughing with Lula about her fast food diet
Again, great voices
Always love Lula, she steals the show for me
Best one in a long time. Stopped reading them for a while and tried this one just to see. Glad I did
The narrator did a good job with lula's voice. There were some funny lines.
On the downside, the voice of Stephanie was all wrong and having a female do the male voices just ruined the story. A woman saying "Babe" as ranger was unconvincing and detracted from the experience. Should've been two narrators since there are so many male characters.
Change the narrator.
I think the series may have gone everywhere it can. Maybe develop Lula as a character and venture off onto new materia.
would not pay for this audiobook. Probably OK as a book you read yourself.
I love listening to stories about Stephanie Plum -- but I don't like listening more than once. This book is no exception.
The plot is simple and funny -- but once I have listened, I already know what is happening. Time to move on!
Many of my other friends enjoy Evanovich -- thus I recommend all whenever I read or listen. Stories of this kind help to take the pressure off the end of the day, driving home -- and this is good!
I typically like driving while listening -- and all of a sudden the trip is not so long. Perfect!
Lorelei King does a great job of performing the characters. She typically reads stories from Evanovich -- I would expect no difference! The vitality that she brings to the characters is enigmatic!
No -- I like to listen to these kind of books across time -- It is easy to pick up after I have been involved in other projects. The material is light and easy to pick up where you left off.
