What the Critics Say

“What do the New Jersey Mob, bingo, and giraffes have in common? Stephanie Plum and crew. Narrator Lorelei King performs the latest zany antics of Stephanie, Lula, and Connie, along with some sizzling smooches from Morelli and the ever hot Ranger. As Plum goes after the bail-jumping Uncle Sunny, a mobster who is Morelli's godfather, King's performance kicks into high gear, switching accents from Jersey to Italian without a hitch. Sleuthing for Stephanie includes a little black dress, funerals, and bingo. And the giraffe? He's the comic relief in this silly mystery flawlessly delivered King with a different voice for each character--except the giraffe. Combine King's vocal acting with Stephanie's adventures, and you laugh through the whole audiobook.” (AudioFile)

    "I want it to end!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was strongly wishing this was the final book, and if so I would have jumped with joy, and sang out. I've stuck with Stephanie Plum the whole way through, but the last 5 or so books I've been done. Nothing new is happening. I need a conclusion and quick or I might just stop listening.


    What could Janet Evanovich have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Accepted the fact that her readers are ready for a finish, and concluded the book.


    What didn’t you like about Lorelei King’s performance?

    I was disappointed years ago when she switched narrators, but I've come to like her. She can be a little over the top at times, but I do enjoy her.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, a lot of eye rolling, and a few internal laughs.


    Any additional comments?

    Stop don't even start the series. It's good, but it's gone on way too long.

    "Very disappointing!!!"
    What disappointed you about Takedown Twenty?

    I have read/listened to ALL of her books. I have LOVED them ALL, until this one. To me, it seemed like she was just trying to get a book out. I can't believe that editors did not get on her with the story line. She had characters in this book that were in old ones (Antwon Brown) and she introduced him like he was a new character!
    To top it off, was the RANGER/MORELLI SAGA. The end of the last book had Ranger coming by... As he needed a date. Then in this book you think it will pick up from there... But it doesn't. None of the good romance saga in this book, no real adventures with Lula or her Grandma--very boring. The worst part was in regard to the story line re animals. How disgusting!!!!!! I can't believe she went there. Poor choice in this one Janet.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Janet Evanovich again?

    Yes--- I loved the other books. Hoping she will improve in the next one.


    What aspect of Lorelei King’s performance would you have changed?

    Her characters are starting to overlap. She often sounds like old character voices in new characters. But I luv L. King!!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was just ok, blah blah... Too predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    I really hope she reads the reviews, but I think she has stated before that she does not.

    Loralei King is a great narrator as usual, but the Stephanie Plum theme is just played out.

    "Same old story"

    Not much has changed with the Stephanie Plum story line. Was hoping story would develop into something with more interesting characters. Sad but story was predictable.

    "Love Stephanie. This one was so so to me."
    What did you like best about Takedown Twenty? What did you like least?

    Always like characters and reader. Don't like the struggle Stephanie is given with marriage and maternal clock. She's my escape from all that.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I love her interpretation of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this one with a Boston Cream to take away from midlife crisis.
