Janet Evanovich is a true master of the comically unexpected. I love the charcter Diesel and the monkey and all of the unusual characters that just happen to surround Diesel whenever he's in town. I can't wait for the next Diesel adventure!
Fabulous book! I love Diesel and I'm happy to see him paired up with Lizzie Tucker. It's wonderul when a book can make you laugh-out-loud. What great characters...I look forward to the next book in this series!
I've always loved the character Diesel and I knew this book would be funny and not exactly heavy reading. I was correct. Just like the "between the numbers" books where Diesel was introduced this book is really funny with lots of laugh-out-loud moments which earn you really funny looks if listening in public.
Unfortunately I just couldn't warm up to the heroin. She and I got off on the wrong foot right at the beginning and it never improved... just seemed like an air-head with no redeeming qualities. Hence my three star rating. I love Ms. Evanovich's writing and I'm glad she is introducing new characters. Maybe this one will improve with age ???
I enjoy Evonovich's Stephanie Plum series and occasionally try one of the stand alone books. This was, as can be expected well within the realm of that type of book, but in this case with magical elements. Cute, entertaining, fluffy. About what you would expect in a quick read of this genre.
I love fantasy, mystery, personal development... you name it!
I've not read any other Evanovich books, and so this was a fresh book to me.
This book is great. Kind of like Stephanie Plum with magic. I love Stephanie Plum but it is getting a little old. I like this book and want to see Deisel in a new series.
Yes, it is very similar to the Stephanie Plum books, but if you like them, you'll like this, and it will help you manage while you're waiting for the next "Plum" installment!
Be willing to empty your cup"
Janet once again proves herself to be the queen of rapier wit and pithy one liners. Lighten up ye critics!!! I too have read the Stephanie Plum series and do not agree that Stephanie and Lizzie are interchangeable. There are some similarities but enough subtle differences that the discernable listener (reader) will be able to appreciate Lizzie. I think as the series progresses she will grow as a character. Yes, I would like to see a little more ???Laura Croft ???in Lizzie but let???s give her time to develop. This is only the beginning. We learn more about Wolf and Diesel???s background, and Glo is nothing like LuLa, more like what Aunt Clara from Bewitched would be like as a teenager. Cat 7143 is an enigma with lots of potential. Team Cat up with Carl the monkey and the possibilities are endless. The series has tremendous potential if Janet is willing to take some risks. Wicked is a combination of Alice Hoffman???s Practical Magic and Indiana Jones. Lizzie and Diesel's search for the ancient relics, which are talismans for the seven deadly sins, is just getting started. This adventure is just the precursor of more hilarious, action-oriented escapades to come!
I Love mystery books, especially Agatha Christie, and Sue Grafton. I also love Anne Rice.
I love J Evanovich.. But this book is terribly silly, predictable and I could barely make it through. But since i paid for it i figured I might as well. It was awful. I would have given it 1 star but because I like her and the narrator so much i gave her 2. I'll stick to the numbers series, those are great.
