Top Customer Reviews
Let me summarize
Lula is fat, beautiful and funny
Grandma Mazur is whacky
Vinnie is creepy
Connie is competent
Rex is …. well my goodness he's STILL ALIVE and still pretty much a work free pet
Joe is hardworking, decent, needs a hair cut, and likes sex
Ranger is hardworking, dark, mysterious, wealthy and just an almost irresistible temptation
Stephanie is cute, has curly hair that she wears in a ponytail, utterly incompetent and lucky as all heck
Well, and Randy Briggs is back. Still short. Still obnoxious.
And this year's weird animal is a pack of red-eyed killer chihuahuas. Do you people know how hard it is to correctly spell chihuahua? I think getting that right numerous times was probably the biggest effort that was put into writing this book.
It was SO predictable. Nothing new was added, nothing old disappeared.
If I had to do it over again, I would never have touched one of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. Never. Not in a million years. But, like Steph and donuts, I'm kinda hooked.
I figure the series has to come to some conclusion eventually....
Of course, I thought the same thing about the much superior and similar ( though now somewhat to very socially outdated) Travis McGee series written by the late John D. MacDonald from the 60's ( reissued in paperback) through the late 80's. No conclusion for Travis.. Only conclusion was that there were no half- finished manuscripts to be published posthumously after the author's death in the late 80's. I can highly recommend the Travis McGee series. He's like Ranger, only he's all about the women around him and they are all about him. Crimes just happen in the meantime.
This book, however, was such a formulation of all the last few years' of Plum number series books that it was impossible to find anything much to smile about, be interested in, or even be grossed out about even though Janet amped up the gross factor quite a lot to make up for the lack of sex. This was a first I think. Usually there's not much grossness or sex.
Just a girl who is always described by her hair, her mascara, her lip gloss and her lack of markmanship.
This has to end, Janet. Please. Use a nice even number like " 22" and put Steph. with one of the two men, make it final, and maybe shuffle the formula writing off to someone else- someone who will then write gooey romance novels about Stephanie and either Joe or Ranger.
I'd actually read more if Ranger was the leading man.
This action adventure is stale and trite and the gore in this novel was " shock jock". I believe an adolescent is writing under Evanovich's famed name now. Really.
