Ok, here is the deal. I bought book 2 in this series and then realized I got the wrong one. So.. I bought book 1 and started there. After the first book I wasn't sure what to think. The topic was interesting, the characters had redeeming points but the execution was very flawed. I have a hard time with authors who can't keep their facts straight.
For crying out loud! Buy a pack of 3x5 cards and write a physical description of the character on the card. From then on out refer to the card when the character says "it matches my ____ eyes." And don't allow their hair to grow 4 inches in a mere 2 weeks.
This part really bugged me.
Next, if a character has such a depressing life, why do I want to live it with them? I read to enjoy, to conquer the world, to feel like the good guy always wins. After listening to book one I thought I would give two a chance. The author improves, a tiny bit, but just not enough to drag me through her depressing and muddy life for another 6-8 hours.
I won't waste another credit.
I think this book is totally for SNL fans. 'Pat' isn't doing it for me.
If you really enjoy listening to live comedy AND you like Saturday Night Live, then this book is for you. I'm having a hard time with poking fun at one's family in this fashion.
Sorry everyone. I know you don't like my few stars but would you allow me to not enjoy this? Call it my crazy moment, but allow me to choose my own 5 star books. Ok?
This is a very sad story. A woman is hit by a young driver that 'doesn't get it'. He thinks it just doesn't matter. The husband is extremely upset. Very sad.
A trenchcoat from England starts a conversation. A new chap wants one and then stiffs the guy who orders it. Now, the coat salesman is suspicious of the new guy. 'He doesn't have a job and doesn't know what a callous is'.
Pretty good story.
A blinding fog starts the story. The mother and son are a corrupt team. Crime runs in the family.
A hotel safe was robbed and the jewelry is stolen. It is heading to the melting pot unless Friday gets the case cracked. Good story.
A mental asylum has had two escape! Cranston and Ms. Lane come across their new home while driving on a dark, strange back road on their way home. Chaos ensues!
The sound quality is not great.
Wow! This was a really good story and played out well. The characters were real and believable. This is one of the highlights of the whole series!
A corrupt government is at the center, I guess it seems so real today - just read any news site.
Wow! This book really improved on the series with Evan and Jessie getting along and using the skills of each other to 'get the job done'.
Grandma's bell has disappeared and two mean boys now live in the neighborhood. Maxwell rescues a frog, Jessie finds Grandma when she gets lost and Evan proves he has skills of his own. All ends well with the New Year being rung in, literally.
The séance to contact the spirit world happens and fraud (gasp!) is committed. Omar is the lead.
The Great God Shiva has been angered. Mr John Simmons has been murdered. The Police Commissioner even sits in on a séance to see what happens. The Shadow sits in to solve the case.
There are hisses and pops in this recording. The age of the recording is obvious.
A crazed cat as large as a human kidnaps Margot Lane and the Shadow must save her before it is too late.
