it was ok
bookshelves: just-fun, audio, own
Read in April, 2012

I enjoyed the movie and the audio book was super discounted at Audible, so I got it for listening while I walk my dog in the park.


I'm more than halfway through this, so I'll probably finish it, but I have to admit that I'm disappointed - it's not very well written. I think I can see what people like about this character, and there's some funny lines. But the reader is trying too hard to sound like she's from "Joisey" and she's stepping all over the humorous stuff. Kinda wrecking what little there is to enjoy. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I think the movie was better.


Meh. My initial impression was pretty accurate - not very well written, not very compelling. I wouldn't waste my time with any more of these books.

Terri the books get more formulaic as they go along. don't count on the series getting any better.
