Not really. I listened to the entire book. I kept thinking that maybe the authors were laying the groundwork for the plot. I was bored listening to it. I love the Plum series.
The characters are boring and predictable.
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
If you like Nelson DeMille's wisecracking John Corey, you'll become a fan of Kate's.She is cut from the same irreverent cloth.
I have to praise Scott Brick. He does not attempt to make female voices that annoying falsetto that so many narrators use. He is one of the best.
I liked this book, because I did not expect another Stephanie Plum. No laugh out loud, zany characters, but quirky enough to hold my interest. This book leaves the cozy behind and is definitely a suspense novel. I thoroughly enjoyed the edgier story line.
Scott Brick delivered a strong performance, as the narrator, more in line with a suspense novel.
I want to see this group of characters become a new series. Bottom line, if you are looking for a "Plum light", this is not the story for you.
I'm a big fan of both authors and was hoping for better characters, more laughs and a more memorable story. It wasn't terrible, but for the most part largely forgettable. I don't feel that I wasted my time listening to it, but it's not a book I'd read twice.
I love Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, but this is not as funny. That said, there was some humor in the book, and I enjoyed the story. I frequently pick books because Scott Brick is the narrator, but he was not the right choice for this book. He was too serious and skimmed right over the humor in the book.
I might recommend the book to friends, but I cannot give it a rave review.
Lorelei King brings all of Evanovich's characters to life and highlights the humor in the books.
I will be interested in seeing how these characters develop in future books, but I will probably read the next one and not listen to it.
Drive for work and listen all day long. Audible is a God send as it lifts me from traffic and off to an adventure!!
The plot line has been done over and over. That was the stale part as we have heard the story before. Bad guy switches sides and saves the day. It was cool as a common Scott Brick type of book and Scott brick can really read life into a story. But not really the best.
Scott Brick is fabulous and I loved the story line. The story was fresh, fast paced and entertaining. I laughed out loud and was tickled by much of the dialog and banter. This was an excellent book and I expect to see it as a movie in theaters in the future. I can also imagine the second in a series coming soon.
Scott Brick is one of my favorites. He is much more than a reader. I always scan to see what his latest book might be. His voice is that of an actor with no irritating habits or intonations. He brings so much to an excellent book, one of the best!
good characters and not zany just for the sake of being zany
He is great
I have been thinking about giving up on Evanovich books but I am glad I didn't because I really enjoyed this one
An avid reader and listener with eclectic tastes... One unifying them is my love of humor, mystery and great narration.
Don't expect a deep storyline here but do expect an interesting read. Being familiar with Dick's style of narrating, I enjoyed his performance and thought he did a solid job conveying various characters.
I really liked Janet Evonovichs other books, but this one felt like I was watching reuns of the tv show" leverage". Dissapointing in a lack of originality. I was also hoping for a supernatural twist.
Good character differentiation.
