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!
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!!!
Yes you never knew what kind of trouble Lizzy was going to get in!!!
Wasn't as good as the first one. I rarely put a book down once I start and I actually quit this one.
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.
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.
The desire to go back to reading on my own.
Diesel of course--very hot!!
I will avoid this narrator for future books.
I have always enjoyed Janet Evanovich's story telling. Her stories often take unexpected turns.
She is excellent
Diesel is a lot of fun
I really enjoyed Wicked Appetite but I would not listen to it again.
The story had a nice fresh twist on the deadly sin of gluttony. It kept my interest and was very witty. I caught myself laughing out loud more than once. The characters were fresh but completely believeable.
I loved the story line. It was funny and scary. I listened to Wicked Appetite on my Ipod while I was working and it made my night go so fast. It's one you just can't stop listening to.
Diesel. He is just so awesome. I liked his character in the Stephanie Plum series and he's just perfect in this series.
Lorelie King is amazing. She makes every character believable. I always look for books that she reads.
It was all just so funny and entertaining.
Can't wait for the next book.
It was light reading and not real deep. Easy to listen to in the car.
Yes. I love the Stephanie Plum series and this book was a holdover under her new book was released.
The characters very much mirrored the Stephanie Plam cast. It might have helped some if it were a different narrator to separate the 2 series. King does a great job with the Stephanie Plum books.
It was a good easy read. Entertaining enough for me to finish. Cute in some parts.
I will probably go ahead and read the second in the series. Though I still love the Plum series, it always feel like such a long time to wait and this will fill the gap.
I am such a Stephanie Plum fan that I expected super funny characters and romantic tension. Not real impressed with the Wicked series.
Yes, it was an entertaining, light listen.
I like the Stephanie Plum series better, but enjoy Janet's humorous style of writing.
Yes, I would!
I drive a lot for work and like audio books that are easy to enjoy without taking too much concentration from the road.
