I love this series of books, the only thing that would make them better is if there was not so much bad language in them. Other than that, I have really enjoyed them. Be sure to try to listen to them in order!!
I am sure Michaels is a good writer but this novel was a waste of my money. There were too many characters and too many subplots. If one had been chosen and developed, it would have been palatable.
This was billed as the first in the Rules of the Game series, but in reality it was around the eighth in The Sisterhood series. I specifically bought this book in one of Audible's sales of books that are the first in a series, so I was disappointed to learn that you needed background info to appreciate what was going on. I went back and read the first three so I could get an idea of what was going on with the characters. This one wasn't quite as cheesy as the first few I read, which I was happy to learn. It was okay but I'm tired of the series; there aren't many new twists. The one thing that really bothered me is that these are supposed to be strong, smart women - yet they take their orders from a man and they talk about how he has all the good ideas! Something is wrong with that picture given the theme of the book.
Learn to write.
The author labored with an incomprehensible plot, unbelievable in almost any context, so much so that it seem more of a cartoon than a novel. But, even more than Batman and the Joker, both the protagonists and the bad guy were thin caricatures, not of real persons, but of unlikeable comic strip heroes and villains. The story line jumped and had fits and starts (with no fun involved). I just wish it had stopped earlier, so I could erase it.
Don't make the character's voices so strained. It is sometime more difficult for a female voice actor to 'do' males; in Laual's case, she seemed more troubled by artificial distinctions between her female characters. The audio performance was likely hampered by the script.
