As a fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, I found this book to be a disappointment. The traditional dry humor was missing. Instead, it seemed that it was forced and just didn't reach the same standard.
LOVE this series and can't get enough. I find myself laughing out loud. Grabenstein is terrific and Woodman is a brilliant narrator. Don't EVER get a different narrator for this series. I've recommended this series to others and they've all become fans as well.
The ending was memorable, in that I didn't want it to end. This book is too much fun -- I wanted it to keep going.
Jeff Woodman is an absolutely OUTSTANDING narrator. I've purchased other books simply because he narrates them.
Didn't want to put this book down and didn't want it to end.
Can't wait for the next Ceepak/Boyle book!
The other reviewers have said it all beautifully. Another great Danny and Ceepak story that made me laugh out loud numerous times. This narrator is EXCEPTIONAL and makes me want to listen to this again and again. I hate thinking that I'll have to wait 2 years for the next one. I love this series!
In the usual stellar writing style of Grisham, Calico Joe will grab you right away, keep you listening for hours, and leave you wishing for more. You certainly don't have to be a baseball fan to love this book, but if you are, you'll especially enjoy it. I have never been disappointed by a Grisham book. As always, I'm already looking forward to his next one.
As an avid Baldacci fan, I ignored the negative reviews. I shouldn't have. What's happened to Baldacci? This story was well below his usual quality. Narrator for Michelle was distracting, and she made the character seem extremely unlikeable at all times. I'll pay attention to the reviews before I buy another Baldacci book.
Having become a fan of Danny and Cepak, I couldn't wait for this new one to be released. I wasn't disappointed! I find myself laughing out loud while listening. The narrator is exceptional and helps increase the enjoyment of this book. Sheer fun. Can't wait for the next one.
As a fan of previous V.I. Warshawsky books, this one was a disappointment. The narration made it difficult to keep paying attention. This narrator was monotoned and even mispronounced some words, including names of locations referred to in the book. With a better narrator, this book would have been much more interesting. I was so excited to have a Paretsky book available and ended up sorry I used a book credit for this one.
I should have listened . . . Because I have enjoyed previous books by this author, I purchased it even though the reviews weren't overly positive. I should have listened to them! This book is not up to the author's usual standards. It's boring -- skip this one!
