I 'read' Moon Over Manhattan via audio while I worked and I wanted to jump from the 20-foot scaffold onto my head halfway through the book. I was hoping the ending would redeem the story, surprise me, but nooooo -- i can't even recall how it ended although I'm sure the aforementioned ending was congruent to the aforementioned story.

Actually, the aforementioned story would have been cute, although I suspect it was written by a teenager. The first 2 or 3 uses of the words "the aforementioned" were

Not really my thing. Some of it was funny. It grew on me as I got father in, though. I was not as annoyed as some of the other readers, but I do feel it could have used more editing. I understood the purpose of repeating certain words as a humor device, but there were other seriously distracting flaws. Of course, I'm not a New Yorker, so maybe I wasn't supposed to love it.
Good story and characters - needed a professional narrator not a talk show host reading aloud to children.

Read this a couple of years ago and found it unenjoyable.

1.5 stars. author/ass/foot
This was pretty bad. I just wish I had kept a count of the use of the word "aforementioned" in this book. Seemed like it was on every single page...multiple times. I'd like to kick the aforementioned author's aforementioned ass with my aforementioned foot. LOL

This was terrible. I listened to it as a free download from the library -- I missed parts and it didn't even matter! And I didn't go back to catch up, it was that bad. Had a been playing a drinking game looking for "thus" "thusly" and "aforementioned" I would have been absolutely hammered after the first chapter. I wish I could give it zero stars. I have not watched Larry King, but I sure hope he doesn't WRITE anything else.

I was on vacation at my in-law's house and needed something to read. I can't remember the last time I had such a hard time finishing a book.

so funny and enjoyable. Hit upon every sterotype of New Yorkers I could imagine. I truly enjoyed it.

This is a case of something being printed because of name recognition only. It was a waste.
