Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Plum is back in all-new adventure from #1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

©2013 Random House Audio; 2013 Janet Evanovich

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)

    Story
    "Not my favorite Stephanie Plum book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Takedown Twenty to be better than the print version?

    I normally prefer audio but in this case, I think I have such a picture of the characters in my head that hearing it sort of takes away my preset images.


    What other book might you compare Takedown Twenty to and why?

    Other Stephanie Plumb novels


    Any additional comments?

    story was a little lacking -like it was rushed. Thanks being said, always enjoy a Stephanie Plum novel

    "Funny as Always"

    I thought it was funny but very short. I like the Stephanie Plum series but now all the books are kinda the same. But I'm not ready to quit the series yet.

    "Nothing new or interesting."
    What disappointed you about Takedown Twenty?

    I have loved this series but it was just a rehash. Nothing new or interesting.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Janet Evanovich again?

    Yes but not unless she puts effort into a new storyline


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lorelei King’s performances?

    Yes. She is excellent.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Takedown Twenty?

    All of it.

    Story
    "Same old thing"

    It's the same Stephanie Plum formula with a few new variables.

    Bond capture fails because Lula screws up.
    Stephanie can't decide between Joe and Ranger.
    Bella hates Stephanie.
    Some weird side story.
    Lula gets mad at being called fat.
    They eat chicken and donuts.
    Granny goes to funerals.
    Granny fits the modern granny 'shocking' stereotype.
    Stephanie loses/ruins several cars.
    Stephanie's mom is disappointed in Stephanie's life.
    Stephanie is in peril and Ranger rescues her.
    Stephanie comes through.


    You now have the basic story of the last 5 books. Time to change the formula up.

    Lula is excruciatingly annoying. Granny needs less focus. Stephanie needs to grow up. The narrator is fabulous, despite the terrible stupid story/dialogue.

    "Steph, bingo, Lula, giraffe, Gram & murder: YES!"

    I love Stephanie and the cast of characters in the Plum series. Keep 'em coming. This one has many laugh out loud moments for me. When I listen to a Plum book, I am not looking for an education or "serious literature." I want a mystery, interesting characters, a laugh here and there, and a story that carries me along with it as it unfolds. This one delivers. I'll be listening many more times in the future.

    Story
    "Give it up already."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you have read the first 5 books in this series then you have already read it all! It is the same stuff OVER and over.


    Has Takedown Twenty turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Anything by Janet Evanovich YES. Its the same book (as the others) just another number.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Ranger. It is WAY past time to have just a series about Ranger.

    Story
    "Maybe 20 is Too Many"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who hasn't read every one of her books.


    Has Takedown Twenty turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What three words best describe Lorelei King’s performance?

    Good, clear, fun.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Takedown Twenty?

    The giraffe being loose in the city.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't decide if her stories are getting worse, or I've just tired of the "same ol', same ol'.

    "Same novel, different number"

    I stopped reading this series around Fourteen or Fifteen because the books were so similar and boring me to pieces- this book follows suit! How many times can we hear the exact same story (with different skips to catch, of course)?!?!
    Stephanie loves Morelli, can't resist Ranger, wants Morelli, wants Ranger.... UGH!
    I loved the first few, after that it's like deja vu every time!!!

    "Butchers, bingo & stripper poles!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh yes. Evanovich was on point with this one. The plot rolls along, old characters stay true to form, new characters keep it spicy


    What did you like best about this story?

    Grandma, in a thong,on a stripper pole


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That might require a spoiler alert. Let's just say Janet E makes me laugh out loud.


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

    Oh, there could be so many.


    Any additional comments?

    Evanovich knows how to keep you craving more
