Still Great

A great mystery narrated by one of my absolute favorites, Tony Roberts! I could listen to anything by Tony Roberts. I enjoyed this collaboration by Woods and Parnell. I was very happy with the development of the characters and the storyline being kept close to its origins. That being said, if this happens to be your first Stone Barrington novel you should enjoy and want more.

what a refreshing change!

What did you love best about Barely Legal?

a new co-author has dramatically improved Stuart Wood's previously predictable plot formulas.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

it kept me engaged with multiple intertwining subplots, not typical of the author's previous novel's.

Which character – as performed by Tony Roberts – was your favorite?

Dino, as always.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was pleasantly surprised and engaged. I couldn't predict the twists and turns that are more typical of other authors.

What a tangled mess we weave...

How could one person get in so much trouble?!?!? An enjoyable story and fun end. Looking forward to the next Herb Fisher book...

Barely legal

Not nearly as good as all former books of Stuart Woods. Perhaps it's the co-author

confusing!

I have usually loved I have usually loved all of Stewart Woods' "Stone Barrington" series; however, this one has way too many characters to keep track of, and too many things going on at once. By the time we got to the middle, I could not tell which Thug was working for which mafia goon. Was extremely irritating. I figured out the ending long before it happened, as well. Your mileage may vary.

Not up to Stuart Woods standards

I enjoy Stuart Woods books because of 2 things. I like his style of writing and I enjoy the characters. His books are easy reading and not crazy confusing plots. His books are enjoyable reads. I don't really know what happened, but this book is convoluted, confusing, and unlike any other Stuart Woods book I have read. Perhaps it is the vision of the guy who co-wrote the book with him...Whatever it is I didn't like it. Stuart Woods fans should listen and see if they feel as I do.

Barely Legal Is a Lot of Fun

One of my favorite Stuart Woods books. Whereas the Stone Barrington character is a super human being with young women falling over him and an endless supply of money, Herbie Fisher is human, fallible, and funny. The scrapes Herbie gets himself into are logical as they strain credulity. In other words fun, escapism fiction. Give me more Herbie but keep Stone and Dino as his secondary characters.
