It was really hard to get past Mr. Koontz's overuse of adjectives, jumps in time/location, and overall droning and rehashing... but it was worth the wait to get to the last 2 hours of the book. The message was poignant and sweet and "worth the wait."
We really need the unabridged version... if one exists. Great narrators and a good idea for a book.
So many nights I wanted to scream and cry because of the chore that bedtime became! This author sums it up nice and sweet and Samuel Jackson perfectly speaks the words! I love you baby, but go the f*** to sleep!
I listened to all three books, and all three books I had to start over a minimum of three times. Even with a clear understanding of the plot and characters, the enjoyment eluded me! I love foreign films, murder, and mystery... but this trilogy almost killed me! I wish I could claim that I am not very educated and that perhaps this was too complex for my simple mind... I just never enjoyed these books.
Great concept but poorly executed. I would have liked more of a climax to the story. I felt the final scene was a bit of a let-down.
After waiting a year for another dose of Stephanie Plum, I unplugged my MP3 Player and felt disappointed and vexed. Thirteen was only OK and lacked the usual spice and LOL (laugh-out-loud) qualities that Janet’s other books seem to have. Ranger didn't seem nearly as unattainable nor dangerous (two of his best qualities) and the *heat* that usually seems to sizzle just under the surface, didn't even seem to get the temp to lukewarm this time around. Stephanie's life seems to be getting a little more sedate, it almost seems she should just let got of the Ranger wanderlust, marry Joe, and have babies. JMHO.
