Have to say this ranks right up there.....wildly humorous, in a dark kind of way. But always politically on point. In the vein of Carl Hiaasen, too!
Following Serge, of course.
Mr Wilson's talent is amazing, makes you want to search out all his work, and listen!
That's a tough one, not sure....but it would be a great movie!
Hooked on this series of books....for sure
Yes, because it's entertaining, and factual all at the same time! So you can enjoy the story, and learn something all at once. What a novel idea!
Not sure, but maybe Sarah, I think. Because she just DOES, whatever it takes, she gets it done.
As I said, Sarah, because she gets things done right the first time,
They did make a film of this. Don't remember what the tag line was, but I think this audio version was far better than the flim.
Just an overall good listen
Oh, yes, I would. Mr Karp did not let any of his readers down in this Biggs & Lomax book. The plot moves quickly enough to keep everyone engaged. The twists & turns are more than enough to keep all guessing!
When Mike Lomax finally gave in to Diana's charms
oh, the explosion
Can't wait for the next in this series
Since I have not read the print version, I can't answer this question. But I can say the audio was bang up awesome!
Oh, yes. The plot moves swiftly, and keeps you jumping from one solution to another.
His voices......most definately
I think, in this case, it was when I realized just what the whole thing was about. Because you think it's about one thing, but not! It's a whole other "thing"!!
This book turned me on to Marshall Karp. I am now addicted to the Biggs & Lomax series!
Don't know about the print version, but the audio was awesome!
Similar in style to Hiaasen's writing, but the narrator is really, really good!!
Hard to say, as most of the book was very good. Hard to stop listening....this is a must listen AGAIN!
Ah, when he got his dogs....
Super good listen, can't wait for another. Please let this be series!!
Not sure about the print version, but this is a good listen. You just have to pay attention
Pokey because he reminds me of my grandfather, who was a Choctaw indian
when coyote lost his ass
Coyote,of course.....for a game of wits!
Just an entertaining listen. But you much pay close attention, or you will get lost
Oh, yes. This was one of the most entertaining book I have listened to in a very long time.
One that I will listen to more than once, I am sure.
Steve, the dragon!!!!
Voices, he's good at voices.
Theo, I think.......Steve, too.
Just a riot! Had me laughing out loud! I listen while driving my car. You can imagine the looks from people in the cars around me, as they watch me laughing so hard, I cry!!
Can't say, as I have not read the book, just listened to the audio verison
Not exactly what I have come to expect from Evanovich. Far to "romancey" and not near enouch comedy & quirky characters for me.
Her voice is nice.
Don't think it really rates a film version.
Just not my cup of tea, I guess
Oh, yes.....this was just plain fun, from start to finish
The plot was great, and all the characters were full bodied, and flushed out, they cam alive!
When Beth is with the old cannibal
Laugh, of course, laugh out loud!
This is one listen I would recommend to everyone. Moves along at a good pace, and gives you good laughs!
No, don't think so. This was just not what I was led to believe it would be.
It is no where close to Hiassen or Dorsey's humor, or characters. The story just rambled, hard to tell who was who. Best part of whole book was when the dog pooped.
Hard to say, for free, maybe.....he just did not give the characters real voices.
The whole book? While the storyline is a good one, the writing just did not follow through.
I have very rarely given a truly bad review. So I hate to write this one. However, I must say this book was nothing close to a Hiaasen or even Dorsey. I found literally nothing humorous in the book at all. The characters all ran together, nothing stood out at all. The narrator either couldn't or choose not to use different voices for each one, so you could not tell who was who.
Do I think I would listen to another Shame's book? I really don't know. This storyline could have, should have been funny. Really. But after this listen, I think I will shy away from another one by this author.
The monkey made it funny, the hurricane made it tense, and the other characters made it enjoyable
The monkey for sure.......
No, I have not, and I did enjoy him.
Yes, I think it might be even better
Just an overall good listen
