It was not a waste of time, but it would be a bit strong to say that it was time well spent.
I could imagine a friend getting interested in the author's work and this might be a good introduction to it.
A trifle grating.
Excellent narration and very interesting plot
When Bruno and the mayor plan a demonstration.
Yes, and although this is excellent it is not Mackenzie at his absolute best. His accent for the character of Carlos does not serve well.
A narrator who did not read in sloooowww moootion.
Pace was unbearably slow. Very strange accents adopted.
Among the very best.
Strong plot, very humorous dialogue,
Gardner was born to narrate this series, and he outdoes himself in this reading,
I do not tend to listen to books twice.
All the repartee between Wimsey and Parker.
When Wimsey pays a visit to the villainess posing as her alter ego
No, it is sufficiently complex that one wants to,pause to digest.
It is a trite book, a pastiche of what is already out there. It needed an originality injection, the love/lust story line was particularly tedious and should habpve been skipped altogether.
No - very thin premise which barely supported this one book.
In the top quartile.
The early interactions between Lucy and the woman for whom she works, as they size each other up.
The scenes where Lucy was hanging out with friends in her temporary quarters,
The artist mother.
A quirky book, refreshingly so.
I appreciated all the main characters, especially the main male and female ones.
The narration is lively, the characters are original, the book has humor.
This is a VERY frothy book, and very imitative of Janet Evanovitch and Stephanie Plum. Somebody who does not mind how derivative the work is might enjoy its similarity to Evanovitch's series.
The narrator veered between an Italian American and a southern accent. I think it would have been better if she had not attempted accents at all.
Way too many scenes involving the mother of the P.I.
