    "Audible! Get more Konard stories!"

    OMG! This book is so funny. Great cop story with so many twists and turns, I couldn't stop listening. The characters are anything but ordinary and the situations they create are WAY past funny. Dick Hill & Susie Breck are WONDERFUL narrators -- the BEST.
    Sorry - Gotta go. I can't type and laugh at the same time.
    Audible.com, you need to get more Konrad books in the store!!

    "He does it again!"

    Git on wit yo bad self, J.A. Konrath! Those who loved the previous books in the Jack Daniels series won't be disappointed with FUZZY NAVEL. From the first sniper's shot, this book is slam bam in your face.

    Jack Daniel's day has been pretty bad, but no one can imagine what's still in store for the detective when she heads home to check on her mom in the burbs. But when she gets there and finds that everyone is all tied up-literally, she isn't quite ready to give up. Not yet, anyway. Jack's past has come back with a vengeance and this time, it's looking like no one is getting out alive. Worse than discovering her home has been invaded, her work has followed her home.

    Konrath has a take no prisoners writing style that seeps into every pore, leaving the reader breathless and exhausted. FUZZY NAVEL is an action-packed must read.

    "Occasionally witty, intensely violent"

    This was my first encounter with a Jack Daniels book. I liked the characters and the wit, and don't mind that the events are unrealistic. But wit and action comprise maybe 25% of this book; the rest is filled with detailed descriptions of psychotic humans joyfully inflicting unbearable pain on other humans. The author is thorough: no body part is spared, no method (knife, gun, hand-to-hand combat, explosion, shock, extreme heat, various blunt objects, feline attack, etc.) is left unconsidered, no character misses out on the chance to narrate his/her agony in (literally) excruciating detail. I'm no prude, but this was overwhelming, especially in audio format -- and as another reviewer notes, there is no real satisfactory payoff at the end, just the promise of more violence.

    "beyond believable"

    I had a hard time with this book. I was able to finish it but at times it was a struggle. How much can possibly happen to one person in one day?! How many times can you get shot at and not get hit?! I can go along with most story lines even if they are a little far fetched because they are, afterall, a story, but this was way beyond that for me. I also hated the ending.

    "overly done - skip this one"

    Crime drama/comedy? Characters are stereotypes. Villains and good guys alike shoot it out through the entire book... from one contrived situation to another. Bad guy snipers pin down the unarmed good guys for hours and hours in a rural house. Over-the-top preposterous set of circumstances, dialogue and plot. I regret this purchase.

    "Loved it"

    Possibly because I just finished 2 boring books, I fell in love with this one. Action from beginning to end. Totally unbelievable, of course, but who cares. I loved all the characters and want more. This is my first J. A. Konrath novel, I will be listening to all of them now.

    Story
    "Chaotic, Funny, Moving! Loved it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fuzzy Navel the most enjoyable?

    I love the narrators and the story line was ridiculous yet interesting. Konrath books are always suspenseful with peppered in comic relief. He always manages to keep the characters fresh by adding more substance to situation.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry is always my favorite and the cat.


    What does Susie Breck and Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They are some of the best narrators out there!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Can a day get any worse?


    Any additional comments?

    A great series! Highly recommended!

    "Hard to Believe"

    It is hard to believe that Jack Daniels can get as injured as she does and still can fight on. This takes place, for the most part, in Jack's suburban home to which she has moved because of her mother's wishes. I do love Harry's wit, especially when Dick Hill delivers the punch lines. This is a good read, overall.

    I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.

    "actions packed"
    Would you listen to Fuzzy Navel again? Why?

    yes, I would listen again because it was very entertaining and action packed- I laughed out loud many times


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Sometimes it was so unbelievable- all the moments when the author shifted from the suspense to sweet little family moments


    Any additional comments?

    In spite of my criticisms, this was a great listen. Perfect for some relaxed listening but stand warned.- very violent.

    "Great listen -"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This a great little series, I've enjoyed the entire Jack Daniels series. I like a strong female heroin. The story moves quickly with great humor.


    Have you listened to any of Susie Breck and Dick Hill ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I feel the narrator can make or break the listen of any story. Breck & Hill are good & their performances make you really know & like each character.
