The pacing is better,the comedy is not so outlandish and the story has a good flow. Excellent beach read. Just wish Evanovich would have Stephanie pick a guy or decide to stay single. As a Jersey girl, I totally understand the Trenton and family dilemma.
Classic Lucas Davenport novel. Great pacing, loved Richard Ferrone (he is the perfect narrator). Lots of twists and turns, but you can still follow the plot. I like how Sandford keeps the same side characters (Dell, Elle, Letty) and has Lucas work with them all.
You might also enjoy "The Burglar" books, also narrated by Richard Ferrone. Bernie Rhodenbarr (lead character) is a likable sort - similar to Lucas.
Ferrone brings a warmth to the story. He paces the thoughts and actions appropriately.
NO, it was a great commuting book. 45 minutes in the morning and at night.
Yes. It was entertaining, with enough of a mix of mystical and action.
Maybe. I liked his voice, but the lack of emotion made the book lose something. Atticus' voice needs more of an attitude and sense of humor.
Yes. Really liked and related to the characters. Loved the insider information on how tv shows are made.
Ruth. She makes the same mistakes all young women make when starting out = and learns from them. You root for her and in the end, she wins.
Never heard her before, but I will look for her again.
No. I liked the book immensely but wanted to take it in and process the story in pieces.
Real dialogue. Believable characters. Fun to hear the back story of life in Hollywood.
No, I think the print and audio versions are both excellent. Print lets you go back and review events and mull them over. Audio adds an extra level of excitement.
Letty - by far! Keeps her horrible childhood and doesn't let it determine her future in life. Learns from her past and triumphs.
Also loved Richard Ferrone's "The Burglar" series about Bernie Rhodenbarr. Consistently excellent.
Just really enjoyed it. Great book, wonderful performance.
Edit it down by at least a third. Too much on and on, worrying about things just way out of control. So twisted and just can't catch a break. Needs a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.
The best thing about this book was the exciting twists in the plot. It feels like you begin to root for one person, only to have everything you thought turn out to be wrong. But after the first couple of times, even this device becomes annoying. Get on with it!The beginning shows promise and the first big twist had me yelling out loud. And in the end, everyone is just miserable. No one gets what they want. No one is happy or even satisfied. All that agony, but for what?
Performance was good. Easy to listen to and follow the action.
It was worth the first half of the listening time. Just way to long. By part 3 I was wishing I was doe already.
The author definitely did her research - lots of historical facts, literary quotes, etc. but the conversations are awkward and fake. The characters never really grab your attention or get you invested in their stories. This book is mildly interesting but I won't read Harkness again.
Wonderful and different kind of story. Love the description and detail. Throws a couple of curve balls you could never expect. Really enjoyed this book.
This book is wretched. Didn't listen to more than the first 30 minutes. It is bad Stephanie Plum, with the woman who can't get her cars, love life or professional life together. Read anything else.
Pretty good book. The characters are interesting and mostly believable. The setting in New York works with the story but the lives are pretty superficial and it is hard to really get involved. Would make a good beach read. Not as good as "Last Night at the Chateau Marmont".
