Stephanie Plum is back in all-new adventure from #1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich.
©2013 Random House Audio; 2013 Janet Evanovich
“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)
Takedown Twenty was a disappointment. The plot was a rehash of the old plots with the surreal and stupid giraffe thrown in.....why I'm not sure.
I like Stephanie a lot, but she and all the characters are becoming shallow cliches. I would like to see just who her dad and mom really are. It would be great to here Grandma's story - maybe she and Stephanie could spend some time in the dark, held hostage and really get to know each other, and let us get to know them too. We need to find out about Ranger's karma repair, why it's needed and what he is doing to repair it. Lula is awesome - maybe she needs to find a little girl on the street that she can rescue and adopt..... there is a lot to be done, but we are getting a rehash with each new book. Kind of sad that there is so much potential.
I'd listen again and again. The narrator is perfect and I feel like I live in the burbs! I want Lula to be my best friend.
The books wouldn't be the same without Lorelei King!
They are always amusing albeit a little predictable
There's a whole new set of adventures if you let her get married and have a kid or two! Maybe time to move up and move on!
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.
Other Stephanie Plumb novels
story was a little lacking -like it was rushed. Thanks being said, always enjoy a Stephanie Plum novel
New Blues Gal
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.
I have loved this series but it was just a rehash. Nothing new or interesting.
Yes but not unless she puts effort into a new storyline
Yes. She is excellent.
All of it.
All of it.
Babe????? Ranger of course
Here we go again
Just can't get enough of Stephanie Plum.
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.
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.
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.
Anything by Janet Evanovich YES. Its the same book (as the others) just another number.
Ranger. It is WAY past time to have just a series about Ranger.
Someone who hasn't read every one of her books.
Good, clear, fun.
The giraffe being loose in the city.
I can't decide if her stories are getting worse, or I've just tired of the "same ol', same ol'.
