I've read all the Stephanie Plum books and at this point I don't even expect them to be really good. There are good jokes and funny scenes but the plot never changes. In this book it was obvious what the crime was and who had done it early in the book and then spent the rest of the book feeling that the characters were incredibly dumb for not figuring it out.
However Lorelei King is extremely good at what she does. And at this point these books feel like comfort food. Not exciting and you certainly don't have to use your brains but in a way comforting.
I really enjoyed this book. It had new ideas and a fresh take on monsters in the big city.
The author is very good as an narrator. She doesn't have an actors perfect trained voice but that just gives the main character a feeling of being real.
I really love it when authors read their own work. I actually originally found the book as a paper back and liked it. Then I saw that the audio book was read by the author , immediately bought it and loved it.
Can't wait for Mur Lafferty's next book.
My big problem with this book is the handeling of Anna's rape. It is in no way realistic. The author seems to think rape is something her character can just shrug of and forget. And don't even get me started on the part where she writes about the rape as sexually arousing.
I lost trust with this writers ability to create a credible heroine in the first 30 minutes.
This is one of my favourite books of all time. When I'm feeling down I often return to this particular book. I love it not because of the romance, which is wonderful, but because of the loving family it describes. They're not perfect. Actually their lives are out of control (like real life often is) but they survive because of the love and trust they have for each other.
The characters. They embrace their craziness.
I haven't but she is excellent.
This book makes me happy.
Absolutely. Perhaps to my nerdier friends who enjoy mystery and books as well as technology. And especially the idea that both can be combined.
The enthusiasm of the main character. The idea that technology and the love of books do not have to be in opposition but instead combined they open new possibilities.
This really was an excellent mystery. It was intriguing and exciting all the way through.
He was excellent. He really captured the main characters emotions and journey through the book. I will definitely be looking for other books he has read.
The mystery of the book shop or The quest for knowledge.
Note that this book has a lot of references to computers, programming, google etc. If your a technophobe this is not the book for you. However you do need a lot of knowledge on technology to enjoy this book.
Unexpected, fun, insightful.
The author was an excellent performer.
Yes definitely. It really brightened my long car journey today.
This book made me laugh out loud and think about my own life in a new way.
I really loved this book. It blends an emotionally touching story about adoption and finding yourself with witty comparisons of British and American culture. I have lived in both countries and although the cultural characteristics were sometimes exaggerated there is still truth in them. And yes at times the book is a bit silly but that's part of its charm.
I also really love it when an audio book is narrated by the author. In this book the narration was excellent and really added to the experience.
