i really liked this the narrator is always great but at times i forgot i was listening to diesel and not stephiane, but i still liked it. i love carl he is my favorite animal character. cant wait for the next one, my mom and daughter loved it also. fast easy funny wow.
I thoroughly enjoyed the earlier Stephanie Plum books but found some of the later ones just okay, if not a bit silly...Well, this new series blows "silly" out of the water. Beyond ridiculous is more like it. A shame really as Diesel's search for the Seven Deadly Sins ancient relics could have been fun. I found the heroine, Lizzie, quite boring and the narrator used an irritating voice for her. I couldn't place the accent and her speech sounded like an older person with loose dentures that kept slipping and making a slight whistle on the S sound. Luckily, her accent came and went.
The featured sin was gluttony but its relation to food was very much overdone to the point of grimacing. The mystery was scant, the unimpressive "bad guy" hardly made an appearance, and the romance was non existing. They'll have to look for the future sins without me.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
Evanovich spun off the character Diesel from the "Plum Series". This follows the same light hearted, tongue in cheek style. The characters are interesting and funny. This was an ideal release for the Halloween season. This book leaves you laughing. Lorelei King is great narrating this book. Evanovich is a master of dialog.
I love Janet's books but there is just something wrong with this entire book. She uses the same person who reads for the Stephanie Plum books so all the way thru the book you think the main character is Stephanie. The ending is ridiculous, well the beginning and middle also. I normally don't write reviews and love most everything I read but this one just needed some feedback.
Love Stephanie Plum but this is the same story line Diesel=Ranger Lizzie=Stephanie so on and so forth will not read the next in this series, can read plum series and get the same story. very diappointed thought evanovich would try something new
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 was very disappointed that the female character in Wicked Appetite was so much like Stephanie Plum. She had brownish hair that she puts up in a pony tail that Diesel tugs on (which is what he does with Plum). There were one or two times in the book I was sure I had read the line in a Plum book. I expected Diesel to be Diesel and Carl the Monkey to be Carl but I was really hoping for something new and exciting but was very disappointed.
Well, basically it is a Stephanie Plum novel with new window dressing. Lizzie=Stef, Clara=Connie, Glo=Lula, Diesel= Ranger. Even the Porshe Cheyenne is the same! Come on Janet, can't you come up with something different? Yes, there were quite a few hilarous moments and man, I wanted some cupcakes the entire time I listened to the book!!
Also a Stephanie Plum fan. This book felt like the same characters in a different setting. Won't read any more of these.
