I actually finished Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich some time ago. I just haven’t had time to post about it. I had grandiose plans to post long, informative reviews on everything I read this year, but I don’t think it’s going to work. I just have too much going on. But I still want to post something when I finish a book.
What is it?
Hilarious action/adventure mystery with a dash of romance and a TON of funny
Who wrote it?
What did I like?
The humor. As in the previous two Stephanie Plum novels, the humor in this book is off the charts. There just aren’t too many novels that make me laugh out loud, and these do. Consistently. The Stephanie Plum character is a riot, and her family is hilarious, and her adventures are ridiculous, and the action is so incredibly believable because no one who used to sell lingerie could ever become a bounty hunter without craziness ensuing.
What didn’t I like?
Some of the crazy things that happen in this one verge on awkward. Not too bad. Usually they’re more funny than awkward, but some of the Lula moments (while hilarious) are pretty cringe-worthy.
Should you read it?
Well, I enjoy the heck out of these books, but if you are of delicate temperament, you might not. They’re rough and inappropriate and crude. Hilariously so. And usually more funny than awkward. Stephanie Plum is a funny character—so even if a situation is normal, it won’t stay that way for long.
If you don’t like sarcasm or somewhat questionable romantic scenes or plain, crude talk about just about everything…you won’t like these books.
That being said, I enjoy them. And book number three was no exception!
