    "Agree with other reviewers"

    Also a Stephanie Plum fan. This book felt like the same characters in a different setting. Won't read any more of these.

    "Wicked Appetite"

    Not my favorite book by far. Janet Evanovich is one of my favorite writers and this book kind of boring and goofy for my taste. Not her ususal. I'd pass on it.

    "Insulting to the reader"

    No effort made to develop a plot. Same characters as in the Plum novels, just different names and not a interesting.

    "Send Diesel back to Trenton"

    Diesel belongs in Trenton with Stephanie, not in MA on some improbable magical quest! The entire premise of this story is hard to accept and it's not well enoughed imagined to make it come alive. I love Janet, but this is not her genre and Diesel feels like he's two timing a good and longstanding friend, never a comfortable feeling.

    I'm 30 years old, from the east coast of America, and my favorite books are realistic, but stretch the truth and the laws of physics.

    "Not great"
    Any additional comments?

    To begin with, the story basis just seems kind of lazy, as though the author one day just decided she should do one of those southern paranormal romance things the kids are buying nowadays and threw it together. Second, something about it just kind of bored me. Other than the uninspired subject matter, I think what bored me might have been the pace of it and the annoying male protagonist, "Diesel", who it seems was supposed to be a charming scamp. He was just kind of an arrogant horse's a**. This story lacks a lot of the substance of the Plum novels, and those novels were not something one could call "literary", so that's saying a lot. Just kind of a limp book here. Seems like more of a commercial move on Janet's part than a labor of love.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    Story
    "Yuck"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Compared to the earlier novels with main character, this book would have been better off not being written. It seemed to have difficulty to staying focused. The reader tended to stay in a monotone much of the time. The main character seemed too weak to carry the story. The supporting character was definitely too weak for her part. Another character in the story didn't seem to fit the story. It was like she was there as filler.


    Has Wicked Appetite turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO, DEFINITELY NOT. I have many books with that I have enjoyed. I have many books in this genre. Most I enjoy, a few I haven't decided and even fewer where my reaction was negative.


    What three words best describe Lorelei King’s performance?

    Not her best effort. For some reason Lorelei King's narration seemed flat. Her reading wasn't as good as her reading of other Evanovich books with the main character. I have many other books with her as reader that I enjoyed a lot. Her listed as reader is often a positive factor when I am picking out audio books.


    Do you think Wicked Appetite needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if the plot can be improved.


    Any additional comments?

    For the price even as an Audible.com member is too high for such a poor plot and story. It is unfortunate because I enjoy most of Janet Evanovich's books and Lorelei King narrations.

    "Too funny to listen to while driving!"

    I've NEVER laughed so much listening to a book while driving my car. I had to pull over the first several times Shirley spoke after Glo did her magic on the poor ol' gal. The narrator did a fantastic job (she's one of my two favorites) and Janet Evanovich is such a great author. I totally enjoyed this book, and immediately downloaded the second book in the series. There's magic, mystery, crime, romance, a monkey and a cat, a goofy friend (Glo), and crotchety old lady or two. I rarely listen to any audio book twice...but I think I will with this book. It was that good!

    "hilarious!!!"
    What did you love best about Wicked Appetite?

    As always coming from Janet Evanovich...very funny and full of excitement! I love the character of Diesel brought over from the Stephanie Plum books and Lizzy is just as awesome as Stephanie!!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes you never knew what kind of trouble Lizzy was going to get in!!!

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Wasn't as good as the first one. I rarely put a book down once I start and I actually quit this one.

    "Love the story,dislike the narrator"
    Would you listen to Wicked Appetite again? Why?

    I had read this book before getting the audio version. I loved the story (although short and fast progressing) and the chemistry between Diesel and Lizzy, however, the narrator ruined it for me entirely!! 2 minutes into it I was rolling my eyes. She read like a high school student reading in class who just wanted to get it over with. Her rendition of Glo was particularly irritating. She made the characters sound ridiculous. I bought the audio version because I spend a lot of time driving and this gives me a chance to keep reading books. This one nearly put me to sleep--well until Glo speaks!! Her whiney voice would wake the dead.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I thought she had good detail, but the book progressed very fast (great for people with limited attention span or new/young readers) and ends abruptly which is ok if you want readers to be left wanting more but for avid readers like myself not so much. We want a really good book that keeps us in the story line much longer.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The desire to go back to reading on my own.


    If you could take any character from Wicked Appetite out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Diesel of course--very hot!!


    Any additional comments?

    I will avoid this narrator for future books.
