Publisher's Summary

Avery Shaw is having a bad week. First, she had to cover a story on a barricaded gunman who likes to dance naked in his window. Second, she's receiving death threats with her morning newspaper. Lastly, and most importantly, her mom keeps vetoing her outfit choices. It's all in a day's work for this hardworking, if easily distracted, reporter. Avery Shaw is hot on the trail of the story, even if it means tangling with her hot ex-boyfriend - the county sheriff - and the equally hot, if slightly shadier pawnshop owner down the street. Getting the story is going to be totally worth it - that is if Avery can survive the week.

    "Lots of Silly Humor, Not Much Plot"

    I have to admit I have never liked characters who think saying smart alecky things passes for humor or wit. Like Stephanie Plum. So this was an uneasy fit for me.

    Unbelievable characters, no plot to speak of. I'm sure that many may enjoy this book. It just wasn't for me.

    Narrator had one irritating voice but the rest of the narration was fine.

    "Nice story, poor narration"

    The choppy narration really takes away from the storyline. The male "voice" becomes particularly irritating after a long listening session.

    "3rd Grade Reading Class"

    If you are over the age of 10 and have ever listened to or read any decent mystery, you will probably hate this book. The narration was one of the worst, no THE worst I have ever listened to. I really felt like I was in 3rd grade phonics class.

    Story
    "Why?"
    What disappointed you about Who, What, Where, When, Die?

    What didn't? Immature, shallow, strident, screechy lead character with anger management issues and no redeeming qualities. Her best friend has a tiff with the future mother-in-law, so the girls (not women, these are middle-schoolers) vandalize the car with shaving cream, rotten eggs, etc. Then there's the fixation on male body parts and sex. The two lead men are hunky, of course. They have no personalities. They are just meat. This had Stephanie Plum potential, but it misses by a mile.


    What was most disappointing about Amanda M. Lee’s story?

    There was a story?


    What didn’t you like about Angel Clark’s performance?

    Irritating high-pitched voice often wandered into nails-on-blackboard territory. Perfect match for the character, so perhaps it was intentional.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Who, What, Where, When, Die?

    Not enough space here.


    Any additional comments?

    Formulaic with flat characters. There were obvious futile attempts at humor. The best joke in the book was unintentional; the lead character described "gossiping about politics..." I would be stunned if any character in the book could identify a single elected official. I don't set the bar high for these types of books. They do not aspire to be much more than a quick, escapist read while waiting at the doctor's office or the airport. Believe me, I did not expect great literature, but I did expect the story to be fun. This was just annoying and a waste of my time.

    "Not Interested in anymore Avery Shaw"
    Would you try another book from Amanda M. Lee and/or Angel Clark?

    Actually the writing was not bad - especially for a new writer. The problem was the character - she had absolutely no redeeming qualities and I am not interested in learning what happens to her. In fact - it didn't seem as if Avery Shaw cared what happened to her.


    How could the performance have been better?

    She's not Lorilei King or Susan Ericksen but then few are.

    "Loved It!"
    Where does Who, What, Where, When, Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed listening to the book, I loved the characters. Avery Saw a reporter, is having a bad week, and receiving death threats makes it even worse. She is not letting that stop her from her story even if she has to talk to her hot ex, the sexy sheriff. I LOVED the references to Goonies, StarWars, Disney and many others.


    Have you listened to any of Angel Clark’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book by Angel Clark that I have listened to, but I am looking forward to listening to many more. She did a fantastic job narrating this book! She has a very easy voice that kept me entertained for hours. I get easily get distracted, but not the case with this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the whole book and enjoyed listening to it. I am looking forward to listening to more books by this narrator and author. I highly recommend this book!

    "Lite mystery ..."
    Would you be willing to try another book from Amanda M. Lee? Why or why not?

    Yes. I would like to see what happens next with Avery.


    What about Angel Clark’s performance did you like?

    I liked that Ms. Clark really embodied the character of Avery. She made Avery very real. Elliot and Jake were interesting too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At 5 1/2 hours, this book would be good for a weekend car trip. I was able to listen to it in about 3 days commuting back and forth to work.


    Any additional comments?

    Who, What, Where ... is mystery lite. I liked the lead character because she wasn't your typical girl's girl. She got her nerd on and in a big way. One thing I didn't like so much was the fact that the resolution of the mystery seemed to almost come out of left field. As not to give away any spoilers, the 'bad guy' wasn't someone I would guessed it to be.

    I might give this another listen just to see if I missed anything leading of to the end of the mystery.

    I would recommend this book to my friends who like lite mysteries with a little nerd thrown in on the side!

    "Nerd with an attitude."

    I enjoyed listening to this book. There was a focus on the day to day life of the main character more than the mystery / drama of the story. Otherwise, I liked Avery Shaw's attitude, she didn't take any bullshit.

    Story
    "A cute, funny heroine."

    Avery Shaw is my kind of girl; she's intelligent, funny, nerdy, and feisty. This book had quite a few laughs, but not much in the way of mystery. The "bad guy" had a strange (almost ridiculous) reason for the threats. It became a bit obvious that the book was more about the development of Avery's character than a mystery. The romance aspect was also a bit strange, but perhaps future books will develop that part further.

    I found Angel Clark to be a pretty good narrator. She did well conveying the humor in the book and had good pacing.

    A cute, funny heroine.

    **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

    "very entertaining"

    the reader and the main character seen to be a prefect match. dive of the dead pan delivery of the character's internal dialogue loudly made me laugh out loud.
