"Evanovich is at her best in her 10th Stephanie Plum adventure, which reads like the screenplay for a 1930s screwball comedy: fast, funny, and furious....The rollicking plot, replete with car chases, family squabbles, massive doughnut consumption and a frantic, wacky finale, keeps the reader breathless. As usual, Evanovich's eccentric characters...are a treat." (Publishers Weekly)
Funny, fast, great narration and an story line full of twists and turns. Add that to a host of very interesting characters, and you've got a great book!
The only negative, and the positives dramatically outweigh it, is the ending is a bit abrupt. Other than that, buy and enjoy the ride!!!
Enjoyed the perils of Stephanie again. All the characters are entertaining and each makes a little progress in their lives in this story. Especially enjoyed the surprise ending. The reader does a good job with the various voices. Some of the men sound a little conjested, but maybe they are - doesn't detract from the story though.
Reviewer "sharol" is right about Ms King as a narrator, but wrong about "To the Nines." King narrarated that book as well. "To the Nines" was the first Evanovich book I listened to or read. Ms King's characterizations made that book very entertaining and had me wanting more. Unfortunately, my second Evanovich book was narrated by Debbie Mazar, and while she is not bad, she doesn't hold a candle to Lorelei King. Evanovich's stories are solid. Listen to those narrated by King, read the others.
I'm a huge fan of Evanovich's books, and have read them all. When I saw Ten Big Ones offered by Audible I jumped on it. What a huge disappointment! I feel the narrator is so poor, the attempts at character voices so distracting, I can't even finish it. I was totally optimistic about enjoying this easy, fun author, but what an unfortunate surprise. I wouldn't choose another one with this narrator, but I will read the paper copy of this book.
The author had been strongly recommended by a close friend, so I decided to try this one. I was VERY bored, very fast. I guess the story is the equivalent of a Road Runner cartoon for adults? Shallow, and I guess the only point is how very, very clever the author is verbally? I couldn't take it after the first three hours.
This is the first book that I received from Audible that was TERRIBLE.
Very tackless in so many ways. I was very disappointed in the whole 5 chapters, as I could not go on with this book.
I picked up this book because of the ratings. It has too many bad words to be a children's book. Possibly it could be a soap opera. It is not a bad book, but it doesn't quite seem that it was written for adults except for the bad language. The only thing that I can suppose on the ratings is that the author has a cult following. If you want something that could be the sound track from the 8pm time slot on NBC Friday night, this is it.
This book has too much foul language, uninspired sex, no story line, and is incredibly boring. It was an insult to my intelligence to read. I will not pick this author again.
This was my first audio book by Janet Evanovich and I was very disappointed. The storyline was interesting and I liked listening to the author reading the story but I just could not finish because of the language throughout the story. There were only several words per chapter that made me wince but it was enough that I could not finish the book and I will not purchase another book from this author again.
