2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 15 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
To write for television, you have to create a memorable scene and finish it within 90 seconds. That's tough for comedy because you have to end each scene with a laugh. As wonderful a novelist as Janet Evanovich is, there's an even better script writer hidden inside her novels.

In Eleven on Top, Janet Evanovich has created a memorable scene and laugh every page and a half. That's very tough to do, but she's done it!

Although most will not want to put the book down (who wouldn't want to laugh almost nonstop to the end of a book?), you can read this book before going to sleep knowing that you'll reach a natural breaking point every page and a half.

Much of the humor is visual. It's a remarkable strength of the writing in this book that you can so easily see the slapstick. Few writers can capture slapstick in writing. Eleven on Top marks a new high in Ms. Evanovich's talent in this regard.

If you don't know Ms. Evanovich's writing, it's very much on a par with the very best scripts that Lucille Ball used in her shows with Desi.

Oh, yes, there is a plot. But it's there mainly for people who cannot enjoy a book without a plot. Almost any other plot would have done as well.

Stephanie finds that bounty hunting is just too disgusting for her . . . and quits Vinnie. For the first half of the book, she lurches violently from one job-related adventure to another. In between, Lulu persuades Stephanie to "assist" in capturing a particularly recalcitrant scofflaw. In the second half of the book, she finds a job she likes . . . but it has other complications that you'll love reading about. Someone is also stalking Stephanie and threatening her life. Morelli is obsessed with Stephanie's body . . . and Stephanie finds she "likes" the attention.

I still love me some Stephanie Plum hyjinks! She's still the same ol' crappy bounty hunter with a penchant for destoying her cars and attracting all the wrong kind of attention...but the formula is getting a bit old and wearing thin after this eleventh book in the series. What was once original, hilarious and quirky, I find myself laughing a whole lot less and wanting to smack Steph upside the head more times than I would like. The problem is that since the first book, nothing much has changed. Her hamster Rex is still (impossibily) alive after eleven years (hampsters live to be 3-4 years max.), her relationship with Morelli is stuck in the same old place it's been since they started a relationship, in book four! Ranger is still a complete mystery, Lula is still a complete nutter (although she is one of the few people that still make me laugh) and Stephanie still sucks at being a bounty hunter (and still refuses to carry a damn gun! I mean after so many attempts on your life it may be time to carry a piece ... but then again she'd probably end up shooting herself!). I hear book twelve will have serious revelations about Ranger, to which I say, "It's about time we got something new!!!"

Don't get me wrong, I still liked the book cause it's still a fun read, but it really is beginning to feel as though I've been reading the same story for a while now and Janet needs to change something ... I don't know, but I sure hope book twelve will be like reading the 12th in the series and not as if I've already read that story before ... hasn't really changed since book 8!

I love all of Janet Evanovich's novels. They're funny, sexy, witty, and have great characters.

I still can't make up my mind between the two men in Stephanie Plum's life, Morelli or Ranger, so how in the world will she be able to choose? Is there such a thing as keeping both?

Grandma Mazur is hilarious; Stephanie has a wonderful family.

It was a break to have her quit her bounty hunter job and try her hand at all those other kooky jobs ... and then surprise ... surprise ... she goes to work for Ranger. Enough said!

You must buy this book to find out what happens next! It's worth every penny.

Format: Hardcover
This was one of the best Plum novels since the first came out. Again, I laughed out loud in many places. It was funny and witty. Stephanie seems to have taken a step in the right direction. I was getting tired of the bounty hunting. SPOILER ALERT : Now, as a sort-of-detective, working with Ranger (YES!), she's fabulous! I can't wait for the next installment. The last two books had been minor let-downs. She's back!

Delightful as always. It is a pleasure to read a book that makes you laugh out loud. Janet Evanovich has an amazing sense of humour mixed with the unbelievable events that befall Stephanie Plum. I look forward to Book Twenty.

We shared a wonderful afternoon reviewing the novel with a game of jeopardy. The game was a fun venue to review a fun book. What is happy food?, when does Stephanine's mother tipple?, what was the significance of the pickle barrel?, How did Ranger find Stephanie?
This was the first novel read of the series and we (most of us) found it to be a light, funny and entertaining following the escapades of the beloved bumbling bounty hunter Stephanie and how trouble seems to follow her. We enjoyed the easy read after many thrillers we read recently. Many scored a 4, and one member a 1.
