This book is fun AND funny. Scott Brick's delivery makes this an awesome audiobook.
Scott Brick's performance made the characters funnier than if I had read this book on my own. He's a great performer, and I thought he did an outstanding job. I'm going to look for more book with Scott as narrator.
Consistently overly-dramatic...I used to be a fan...but now his style has worn thin. My history will show I've been a long-time , loyal fan of both Evanovich and Brick. The ship has sailed for me. His delivery is predictably over the top...I've truly grown tired of it..
I love the Stephanie Plum books and enjoy the Barney stories. In listening to The Heist, I realized why I like them - and I'll continue to buy their stories. Even though they are two of the most incompetent, mishap magnets, they are generally likeable. They have a pretty honest and self-amused view of themselves and their lives. The same cannot be said of Kate O'Hare. She is angry, humorless, rigid, negative, self-righteous, irritating, would rather shoot, hit or kick a person than interact and sees absolutely nothing wrong with that. More than halfway through the recording and I don't see any hope of improvement. I'm actually feeling sorry for fictional Nick Fox being "shackled" to this wet blanket for five years. He should request a transfer to the Plum books... He'd and we'd) have a lot more fun...
One of the top 10
Attackng the pirates was a surprise. Loved the humor and overall story.
Scott Brick is just the best! Sometimes I search for books that he has read - if my favorite authors have nothng new out. Scott read all the characters equally well!
Yes and I did! And then I listened to it again because it was so GOOD!
I hope this is just book one of many....I will buy them all!
Great read, suspense with humor. It's the first book I have read of Janet Evanovich.
Yes, the comedy as well as the suspense was a great combo.
Two authors at the top of their game come together seamlessly in this new series. Action-packed and hilarious. Keep em coming!
This has been my absolute favorite book so far!
Where do I begin? The humor, the excellent character development, the end! No spoiler here but kudos on that hot twist...Evanovich really got me on that one!
I love Nick' s easy going attitude and how it complements Kate's uptight edginess.
I really enjoyed the whole drug Lord act. I laughed hysterically and everyone at work thought I was nuts laughing to myself! Nick' s escape from custody was great too.
When oh when does the next book come out and I can totally see this as a movie...Kate Hudson and Matthew Mcconaughey!
Very enjoyable, can't wait till their next book in this series. Great characters that were funny and believable. Lots of twist and turns in the plot that kept me guessing. If you are a Janet Evanovich , pick this one up for a listen.
This has got to be the biggest disappointment I bought this book about an 30 minutes ago all excited about a new Janet Series. Wow I listened to the first 15 minutes of this and could barley follow the story because I couldn't get over the male voice trying to read a story that was so obviously written as a female story. Now don't get me wrong I am sure he is just fine to listen to with a book that was meant for an older male to read. I have been a member since 2007 and this is the first time I have written a review, Certainly am going to miss the 20.00 dollars I spent for this. Maybe I will give the actual book a try and get his voice out of it.
Say something about yourself!
I've only just started listening to this book. I quite enjoy the Stephanie Plum books, so i thought i would enjoy this also.
It's hard for me to pay attention to this book so far. I can't relate the story being told from a female perspective, and being voiced by a man. It doesn't make sense to me, and I feel a huge disconnect when i try and get into the book. It's difficult to get passed this for me.
This book is about a woman, it should be voiced by a woman. His voice seems very bland and dry, there is not much to engage the listener.
I am only in chapter 2. I will re-update this if i make it further in the book and/or change my opinion.
