Jersey girl: listen to more in the Stephanie Plum series.
©2008 Evanovich Inc.; (P)2008 Macmillan Audio
"Evanovich's series is as addictive as Fritos....Evanovich serves up consistently craveable goodies." (People)
"Chutzpah and sheer comic inventivenessâ�?in addition to good fun, the Evanovich/Plum books serve as a nice antidote to everything in pop fiction today." (The Washington Post)
"No less than her plotting, Evanovich's characterizations are models of screwball artistry. The intricate plot machinery of her comic capers is fueled by inventive twists." (The New York Times)
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It takes on a different tone that reading it. I found that when reading the book, the profanity did not bother me but actually hearing the "f" word quite a few times while listening to the book really put me off the story.
This book was short and entertaining. I like the seasonal books with Diesel. It’s a break from the more serious books but gives an update on everyone’s lives.
The "between-the-numbers" books are to try and keep the Stephanie Plum fans at bay. This one was better than the last, I thought. It has its funny moments. I was impressed that Janet Evanovich even included Joe and Ranger. Usually that doesn't happen. As male characters go, Diesel is a little strange for me. Lorelei King does a nice job, as usual, with narration. This is a fluffy 3 hours with a few good laughs but I'm waiting for the next "number book".
I love the Stephanie Plum books; unfortunately, this wasn't nearly up to the usual standard. Oh sure, all of the old characters are here, but the plot seemed forced, the jokes fell a little flat, and who the heck is Deisel? I want Ranger and Morelli back, along with the old Stephanie sass.
Ms. Evanovich significantly improved her between-the-numbers series with Plum Lucky. Our favorite bounty hunter does battle with Gramma Mazur, Diesel, and a toad-like Mafia lunatic in wholly improbable and entertaining circumstances. Even Ranger and Morelli make appearances. A naked Leprechaun and Connie as a sniper round out the performance with 'Burg class. You'll enjoy it.
Love reading but little time or variety of books to choose from. Clutter from old books. Can listen on long trips, vaccuuming, etc.
evanovitch should stay with what she knows, her regular Plum books. in new books, she's looking for a story.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
Not my favorite Plum book, but well worth the listen if you need your Stephanie fix! I am not in love with the Diesel character and wish Janet would focus more on Ranger and Joe as lead males.
Still... the book was good and I can't wait for her next one!
