This book isn't for me. I hardly ever find subjects that are completely intolerable in a book, but this is one, if not done right, I can't abide. My mother is bi-polar with schizophrenic tendencies, which basically means not only are her moods all over the place, but she has a tendency to get violent and hears voices that tell her to do bad things. Thankfully she is cognizant enough to ignore the voices, but it's a very serious illness. And not one I can take lightly, especially in a romance boo ...more

I gave it 3 stars because I didn’t know what else to do. I literally have no idea what it just listened to. This was the most odd story I have ever read. I’m speechless and just so confused by what just happened. It was so bizarre.
Holly Boyd
I'm actually not sure how many stars to give this book...it was a bit like not being able to look away from a car accident. It's probably one of the most bizarre books I've ever read (actually listened to). The main character has Multiple Personality Disorder, she is a member of a special FBI unit that is full of mentally ill agents...her partner is a sociopath, there is a kleptomaniac, an agoraphobic, etc. It is so unbelievable I was waiting to find out this was all going on in the main charact ...more

Cadence Jones is a FBI agent with multiple personality disorder. Her three very distinct personalities include Candence, Adrienne, and Shiro. The problem is you never know which personality you were reading about. Davidson thought it would be a smart idea to change personality not every chapter, not every paragraph but sometimes, mid-sentence. It was annoying, confusing and I did not want to waste anymore time trying to figure out what was going on. Therefore, I didn't!

Me, Myself and Why? is a chick lit mystery featuring Agent Cadence Jones and her two other personalities. Cadence works for a secret division of the FBI, BOFFO, which employs agents with personality disorders because their mental illnesses often come in handy in investigations. Cadence, along with her sociopath partner George, are searching for a serial killer called ThreeFer.

I love the premise, the idea of people with psychological disorders being exploited by the government in the name of publ

Fabulous and incredibly different in a very good way. MaryJanice Davidson never fails to amaze me with her talent!

I don't very often come across a book by an author I admire and find I can't actually read it but this one I struggled with from page one. I was so excited when I found it in a book shop and knew it was one I hadn't read that I just bought it without reading what it was about. Even when I did read the back, I thought it would be fun because MJD writes fun, humorous books. But this one was not for me. I was as confused as the multiple disorder inflicted heroine and I got to the point where the he ...more

Wow. Before you take that wow as a compliment, look at my star rating, and let me be very clear. It is not a good wow.

I've read a number of books by MaryJanice Davidson, 9 to be exact. After 8 books, I've come to expect a certain level of decency in her books. We all know this isn't heady literature, but fun rompy reads meant to entertain.

Reading this book is regretful, not because of the lost time (well, there is that too), but because reading this book makes me less interested in reading othe

After witnessing a horrible tragedy at the age of three, Cadence Jones was never the same. Raised in a mental institution and suffering from multiple personality disorder, Cadence thinks of her other two personalities as her sisters, her family. Cadence is sweet and never swears. Shiro smokes and is sarcastic, and Adrienne is well, violent.

Luckily there is a relatively unknown little branch of the FBI that hires the strange and unusual; they feel agents that are kleptomaniacs, have multiple pers

I'm super disappointed in the book. When I first found it, I was really excited to read it because the summary sounded interesting and addition of "A Modern Threesome" gave it some extra spice. Turns out I was being led on. By a book. No romantic threesomes in sight.

I'll admit that the crime story of the book was interesting and that's basically what kept me going. The characters were really inconsistent - not just our three leading ladies, but others as well. The love interest? What on Earth wa

Candace Jones is an FBI operative in a very special, super-secret branch of the organization. She, and all her collegues have various mental disabilites that make them uniquely suited to hunting down and bagging the criminals they seek. Candace, dealing with multiple personality disorder, and her partner, a sociopath, are on the trail of a notorious serial killer.

This is an outrageous, over-the-top, tongue in cheek kind of book. If you are looking for something believable or a serious mystery th

To start, it's another very short $25 book that's more white space than words. Half way through it was a three star book, unfunny but somewhat interesting. 3/4 of the way I was bored, channel surfing, annoyed at the characters, and somewhat offended by the most awkward and stupid (and short) romance scene ever. By the end I was just offended at the senseless violence and the total waste of time reading this book was.

I used to be a huge MJD fan. I didn't go into this not comparing it to her othe

MJD has been hit-or-miss with me the last couple of years, but this was definitely a mixed-up, twisted, hilariously funny hit! Can't wait for the next book in the trilogy! :)
Mindy Tysinger
This was a very strange book. Candace Jones works for a special division of the FBI that uses only people with severe psychological problems to solve cases. She herself is a multiple personality with two other “sisters”. The book is bizarre jumping from sister to sister in the blink of an eye as she works to find a serial killer. It feels wrong to take a serious issue and turn it into chicklit. I did finish the book though so it got to stars. Maybe some will find it to be amusing but definitely ...more

Jeepers! Creepers! Peepers! I wish it was possible to elect to give a little bonfire rather than a star, because this is the first book I have read that I have despised on this level. I can suspend a great deal of disbelief for a book, but this book would have required me to not be a thinking/feeling/educated person at all in order to enjoy it.

I was interested in trying something from MJD because her books are so popular, but the old homage is true. What is popular is not always right, or, in th

Cadence is an FBI Agent with BOFFO, a division that employs the mentally 'ill' - schizophrenics, kleptomaniacs, multiple personalities, etc. With her 'sisters', Cadence comes with unique skill sets and way of looking a crime scenes, which makes them invaluable. Cadence and her sisters recognize something familiar about the rash of "3Fer" killings, which is causing her to switch rapidly between personalities. Will Cadence, Shiro, and Adrienne figure out who the real killer is before it's too late ...more

I was going to give this three stars, and then I saw on the Goodreads tag for the title that it's "(Cadence Jones, #1)" so I downgraded it a star. This book is not strong enough to stand alone--the titular protagonist, Cadence, is not well developed. Her voice is the weakest of the three, and her character most inconsistent. Also inconsistent was the love interest. And the boss' character. And the best friend (who all but disappears in the second half of the book--some friend). It was irritating ...more

At first, I thought the concept was a bit odd. How can the author write a comedy about mental illness, something that's not funny, and then throw in a serial killer on top of that? But the book does not try to make fun of any of the characters' psychoses. Instead the author showcases their many issues as superpowers. I did not once believe that a department such as BOFFFO could exist and actually produce desirable results, but after a while, I started to see the story just like any other drama w ...more

It isn’t easy being a woman in a male dominated world. It is even harder when you have split personalities; all fighting for a chance to come out. Meet…FBI Agent Cadence Jones. Cadence has three sides to her. There is Cadence the FBI Agent, who tries to stick to the rules. Than there is Shiro, the ninja warrior and finally there is Adrienne, the instigator. You can guarantee that no case is ever boring with the many sides of Cadence around.

I love FBI Agent Cadence Jones and her multiple persona

Ms. Davidson's novel could correctly be described as the literary equivalent of a "chic-flick". That said; I am not the least bit hesitant to confess that I, a 67 year-old male, who normally avoids female-oriented movies and novels like a plague, found "Me, Myself, and Why?" to be thoroughly entertaining and well-worth reading.

Okay, I'm giving this book one star (as opposed to none) because I really like MaryJanice Davidson's other books and *MAYBE* I just couldn't get into this one because of my mood or something...but this one just didn't grab me. I read 20 pages and quit. The premise is very intriguing - an FBI type agent with multiple personalities working with other mentally ill agents. Should have been hilarious. I am a former psychology major and am very familiar with MPD, but this was very jumpy. The main char ...more

Although read effectively by narrator Renee Raudman whose comic timing and pregnant pauses were made for this book, it was just past the edge of the weird side of normal. Cadence Jones works for a very specialized branch of the FBI. All of the agents are suffering from one psychosis or another. In Cadence's case, she's a multiple personality. Her other sisters are not nearly as well functioning as she is. When Cadence and her sociopathic partner George become the lead agents on the notorious Thr ...more

This was different...I've read MJD in the past and found her Undead series to be lite and whimsey for the most part (I mean, a Vampire addicted to shoes)...in this new series, she takes on an individual with mental health issues (multiple personalities) who is also a federal agent.

Overall I enjoyed the book (although I listened as an audiobook) and might consider picking up another one in the series in the future. However, this isn't one that you can listen to or read if you are easily distract

A total waste of paper. Concept so unusual (a multiple-personality FBI agent)combined with aggravating writing style just reinforced my decision to drop this author. If it wasn't that I want to find out what happens during the "Undead" series wedding, I'd never even try to check out MJD's new series. Poke a stick in to me, I think I'm done. Finally. Ugh.
Heather T
This is probably more of a 1.5 stars for me. I liked one or two parts of the story, but for the most part I felt like I was wasting my time with stupidity. I get that MJD goes for the crazy and is very campy and a whole lot of ridiculous, but this one just didn't work for me at all. I want my time back.

2.5 stars.
An interesting concept, secret FBI agency composed of mentally ill people given training and weapons and set loose to catch other mentally ill psycho killers, main character is a woman with three personalities. The plot is pretty weak, though, and seems pretty silly at the end. I might read a sequel, if I've got nothing better on hand.

i found this book rather hard to get into and even harder to enjoy, as it varies quite a bit from this author's usual fare. a government agency filled with people who are psychologically challenged is not my normal choice of reads
