3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. 8 Aug 2010
By Nib
I'm very late to the Stephanie Plum party having only found the series about two months ago. Since then I've read all the books in the series. I'm giving this book a three star review but I think that if I'd been reading the books over the years like most other fans then I'd be giving it a one star. If I'd had to wait a year to read sixteen I would have been so annoyed with it. The whole thing is a disappointment, especially when contrasted with the delights of the first books in the series. Nothing happens, it's not nearly as funny or gripping as it could have been. It's all filler and there's nothing of substance. It feels like an exercise in treading water.

The series started out so wonderfully - fresh, funny and original. While there are (fleeting) moments of funny in Sixteen, there's nothing that's either fresh or original. In fact it's all very tired and as samey as the eight before it. It's also lost the grit and sexiness of the earlier books and feels much shorter too.

I don't want, nor expect to see Stephanie become super bounty hunter but I would expect that after all this time she'd have learned something. I feel that Janet Evanovich is doing a disservice to her characters by not allowing Stephanie to progress or grow as a person or a professional. Lulu has become an annoying, ridiculous caricature, Ranger is creepy and God knows why Morelli puts up with Stephanie. It's sad to see the creator of these wonderful characters now letting them down so badly.

Janet Evanovich is a talented and wonderful writer and it's well within her capabilities to re-invigorate the series and restore it to it's earlier glory. I'll wait in hope for Seventeen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Poor 4 Nov 2010
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
It seems as if this book was written by Evanovich in her sleep. There is very little to say here if you have read the previous fifteen instalments of the Plum saga. What started off as fresh, funny and innovative in the first few books has now become a dull, repetitive grind of sameness.

What irks me most about this series is that nothing ever gets resolved. Stephanie never moves on, never makes any decisions or does anything much of anything any more. At least in the earlier books there were some surprises, some hooks that would keep you guessing until the next book came out, but now all the plot lines and characters are neatly finished and parcelled up with everyone back in the same position they were in at the start of the novel, waiting to do it all over again the next time.

Sometimes the writing is still quite sharp, sometimes the episodes are amusing, but the repetition grinds down even those elements until it all becomes so wearily predictable.

In this book Vinnie, Stephanies boss and cousin, is kidnapped by mobsters when he cannot pay off his gambling debts. With the bail bonds office under threat of bankruptcy, Lula, Connie and Stephanie step up to the plate to rescue Vinnie.

If this is your first experience of Evanovich, you may well enjoy it, but if you are a faithful follower you will be disappointed.

If you want to see Evanovich at her best read the first four books in this series. You won't regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling Sixteen - same old stuff. 20 Jun 2011
By Anne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think this series of novels should be brought to a conclusion. The first 8, even 10, were incredibly funny; Grandma Mazur was a hoot, and Stephanie's misfortune with vehicles was hilarious. Funny enough that I was brought to tears of laughter. Living in the US for many years, and on the East Coast, I could easily picture, and hear in my mind's eye, the Jersey characters, very accurate.

The last few novels are the same old stuff, in effect a re-hash. Ms Evanovich could have written them from past manuscripts with minor changes. The only reason 'fans' are still buying this series is to find out who Stephanie chooses - Ranger or Morelli. Ms Evanovich is taking advantage of her devotees by stringing out the final resolution.

The novels are shorter in length, and if anything the continuing characters have less involvement. There is no evolvement of the regular cast, they are all, without exception, just like Rex - treading the wheel going nowhere.

If I hear again about Lula's diets, too tight spandex tops and skirts, Cluck-in-a-Bucket fried chicken and doughnuts it will be too soon!

Enough already Ms Evanovich, write one last Stephanie Plum novel tying up all loose ends, and move on to a new series.
Your talents could be put to better use.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same 3 Aug 2010
I like the Plum novels, but Sephanie needs to move on. I want more emotional dilemma between Joe and Ranger. Joe is becoming one-dimensional, the old reliable. Even Ranger has lost his dangerous feel. We need something unexpected on the love front Ms Evanovich (should you read this!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical. as Ever 16 July 2010
I love the Stephanie Plum books and this one is as good as all the others. I laughed from start to finish. Yes, I agree with the other reviewers that at times it seems a little repetative, but this is what I want and expect from Stephanie Plum. As always Stephanie finds herself in bucketloads of trouble, with Ranger and Morelli always appearing to get her out from this. Lula, eats as many donuts as always, but I liked the way Connie played a bigger part in this book. The scene with the hobbits was the funniest I have ever read and I would advise reading the book just for this if nothing else. I am really looking forward to number 17, may it arrive soon.
