5.0 out of 5 stars Ranger?s Help needs Help!!, Sept. 10 2003
This review is from: To the Nines (Hardcover)
Samuel Singh is in the USA on a work bond that Vinnie put the money up for. Signh is now missing and its up to Stephan Plum our favorite bounty hunter to find him. There are a ton of suspicious people. Singh's fiance, his bosses, the folks he works with the list goes on. Stephan has also moved in the Joe Morrelli again. Not only is someone stalking her, but the winner of a killing game gets permission to hunt her. Stephanies day can't get any better, or should is say worse. Ranger details several of his hired hands to back up Stephanie when he and Morrelli aren't around. But it's Ranger's hired hands who need a trip to the hospital after hanging with Stephanie! Lula and Albert Kloughn are hostages. This isn't the funniest of the nine books. But its certainly not the worse. I found this to be a great read, a bucket of chuckles and definitely worth the reading time!

2.0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment, Sept. 10 2003
For all you Stephanie Plum Fans, I wouldn't bother buying this book. In my opinion its a waste of time. Its a collection of short stories and if I recall correctly there is only one about Stephanie Plum, which was a good little story.
Other than that, it was a disappointing read. I wouldn't recommend it and if this has been your only exposure to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, don't give up hope! Start reading the normal Stephanie Plum novels they are much more fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dallas is back!, Sept. 6 2003
J.D. Robb has done it again! This the 17th book, I believe, centering around the heroine Lt. Eve Dallas and it is another hit by J.D. Robb! Our favorite Lieutenant is up against intelligent killer who has studied and made serial killers of the past his heros. Peabody takes the detective exam so be sure and read the book and find out whats going to happen with that! This is a great book! Definately worth the reading time even if your don't regularly read J.D. Robb.
The reader is presented with the normal cast of returning characters. What makes this book interesting to me beyond the great story is this is the second book since the author changed her tone of writing. It is my belief that the first 15 books with the much gritier and grimmer writing style gives the reader a glimps into the soul of Lt. Eve Dallas as it where. In latest 2 books the writing style as lighted considerably. Not to say Dallas is any less of a great cop or that her personality has been changed by the author. No its more as if some of the deep mental wounds have been healed to an extent that while Dallas is still a hardass she's enjoying living more.
Another great Lt. Eve Dallas mystery, definately worth the read!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start but needs work!, Aug. 25 2003
This review is from: Microsoft Freelancer (CD-ROM)
I loved this game. What annoyed me is that you never gained enough money and experience to get some of the really tough, powerful ships till AFTER you had made it though the storyline and where doing whatever you wanted to make money. Those much more powerful ships would have been a big blessing during the storyline. I personally really enjoyed the storyline!
I must say that flying with the mouse, also used to aim your weapons at the same time was a great twist and I really enjoyed it. But, I was really ticked off at not being able to roll the ship and do some break-away type moves. There 2 ways I always seemed to die. Massive frontal flood of incoming fire, or getting hit from above and behind where being able to roll the ship and get away would have been dang nice! Other'n that I loved the flight control!!
My other complaint is this. After you make it though the storyline, and after doing about 10 hours of whatever you want this game gets really boring even with the multiplayer mode. If your an outlaw I personally found it difficult because law enforcement can lock down all the hyper gates and your [stuck] cause you can't get places to sell what you've captured. I also didn't like it that there where installations you couldn't distroy! Also the biggest military type ship you could get was a "very heavy fighter" you couldn't get a gunboat, or a bomber, a destroyer, crusier or a battleship. Nor could you get any cargo ship bigger than a tiny little one man freighter! You couldn't get a heavy haller or a massive container carrier or anthing in between. These complaints of mine if fixed would make a GREAT sequal!!!
But other than that this game is a very enjoyable way to forget doing real work! =P Especially if you hav real live people to play with and against!

4.0 out of 5 stars A breath of Freash air from a new author!!, Aug. 25 2003
This review is from: Goddess by Mistake (Paperback)
The book starts off with our Heroine, going to a auction and buying a strange vase. Within hours she's on an entirely different world and is the High Priestest of a goddess off whome she had never heard. Oh, and her wedding is in a couple days, she's going to marry Centar!!
Needless to say our Heroine soon comes to realize she's not going home. Not only that but there are strange humaniod bat like creates attacking everywhere and High Priestess its up to her to make a difference. I found this to be an enjoyable read worth the reading time. I'm sure you'll enjoy this author's first offering to her reading public.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ops Rangers the Bad guy!, Aug. 6 2003
Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter has been told by her cousin to bring in Ranger. Seems Ranger was the last person to see a another guy alive. Anyway the book starts of with our favorite cast of characters. Not to mention Grandma's taken to pack'n a .45 hand cannon in her purse! Poor Stephanie, her on again off again relationship with Morelli is currently off and she's getting death threats as usual. Its another good romping read in the day and life of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter. Definately worth the read, especially if your a Plum fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evanovich has done it again!!, Aug. 6 2003
Book eight in the Stephanie Plum series is a bit darker than the previous sevem books. Its still a very enjoyable book, with lots of humor and laughter. Fans will enjoy the book and the return of our favorite characters with a few new ones to chuckle over.
Mystery readers will enjoy the story told with Evanovich's special twist of humor, sarcasim and Jersey girl style. As with the previous seven books Evanovich has lived up to the style, humor and quality of writing that we have come to expect from her. Definately worth the reading time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms Evanovich has done it again!!, Aug. 5 2003
This review is from: High Five (Mass Market Paperback)
Our favorite bounty hunter is back on the job! But her life isn't all roses, her relationship with Morelli has cooled off. She's broke, with no one to capture for the reward money. Her uncle Fred is missing and the family asks if she could help find him. She finally askes Ranger for a job. Which is late night evictions for a landlord. Well when she's not blowing up her own car. She's getting blown up by angery squatters. If thats not enough Ranger gives her at least two company cares both are either stolen or blow to bits. She's got an annoying dwarf living with her and she still can't seem to make any money! This book is a bucket of laughs. The author has once again created a story in which our favorite characters come to life. This book is definately worth the reading time!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars and a barrel of laughs!!, Aug. 5 2003
Ms Evanovich has done it again!! Stephanie Plum is on the trail of Maxine Nowicki who just happened to steal her ex-boyfriends car. Now the boy friend a real jerk is getting "love" letters from Maxine.The boyfriend one Eddie Kuntz by name offers Stephanie cash if she can retrieve the supposed love letters from Maxine.
This page-turning mystery is one of Ms Evanovich's better efforts and is a absolute hoot! A crazy collection of characters are here to help Stephanie. Not the least of these is Grandma Mazur who is once again at her very best and making the reader laugh! Sally Sweet a six foot+ cross dressing band member and Joe Morelli are also members of this crazy collection of characters. Lula the retired "ho" is Vinnie's new filing clerk with a smart mouth will keep you in stitches. And lets not forget Joyce Barnhardt, the witch who had a fling with Stephanie's husband a few years back on their dinning room table, is the newest pain in Stephanie's backside.
This book is definately worth the reading time!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written but not THAT good!, Aug. 5 2003
The book was way to short! I'm still looking a book I saw on the shelf once and should have purchased, it had TONS of positions listed. On the other hand this book does have some pretty great ideas. It is well written, the pictures are clear and crisp and at the same time are more like erotic art than pornography. The book is tasteful but doesn't even mention topics like anal sex, it should have at least mentioned where to find more information about the topic. That in my opinion is a failing by the author.
But our main disappointment with the book is how few positions where presented and the pros and cons listed. Though I must say we did find the pros and cons list helpful and interesting. On the whole its not a bad book, but not the best in my opinion. I would not buy it again.
