By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Aug. 2005
Format: Hardcover
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 naturally 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.

Finally the eleventh book is here, having read the whole book in just under a day and a half i was plesantly surprised with this one. It was far better than Ten Big Ones which was really disappointing!!!In this one Steph has alot more interaction with Ranger (which will thrill all the babes and annoy the cupcakes), there are a few laugh out loud moments in the book and i actually think Lula gets all the best lines!!!However i did get the feeling that the author is going over alot of old ground, and the series needs to end soon the love triangle between Ranger, Morelli and Steph is becoming a tad repetitive!!
Nevertheless those who have been waiting since the last book will not be disappointed in this one!

Another fantastic episode in the crazy world of Plum. Yet more fantastic tension from the Ranger/Morelli quandry. And with Lula at large in the world of bounty hunting absolutely hilarious from start to finish! Roll on number 12!!!

By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 Aug. 2005
Format: Hardcover
The previous installment in the Stephanie Plum series, TEN BIG ONES, was published in June 2004. In November, author Janet Evanovich apparently launched a new heroine with METRO GIRL, a book I investigated and decided I had no interest in reading. I thought perhaps Evanovich was done with Stephanie. But either I was wrong, or Janet came to her financial senses. In any case, Plum has returned in ELEVEN ON TOP. I admit it; I'm hooked for life on this trashy series.
Thirty seconds into ELEVEN, Stephanie quits her job as a bond enforcement agent working for her cousin Vinnie in Trenton, NJ. True to form, however, brief gigs in the local button factory, Kan Kean Dry Cleaners, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket just don't work out. And it shouldn't be a surprise to any series aficionado when Cluck-in-a-Bucket goes up in flames while Stephanie is on duty.
Everything Plum fans have come to love about Stephanie's personal and public comic misadventures are present in ELEVEN in satisfying excess: explosions, fires, accumulating corpses, tumbles into messy organic debris, and her dysfunctional relationships with Trenton cop Joe Morelli and the hottie Ranger.
Yeah, it's incredibly sophomoric, but great fun. And Plum reveals a new side to her personality when she attempts to quit sugar intake cold turkey. Indeed, the man in Stephanie's life witness to her to voluntary abstention from cookies and donuts had better have the sexual stamina of an eighteen year old. A Plum Assignment if you ask me. Is Morelli up to the task, you think?
I'm perhaps overreacting with five stars. But I'm just so ecstatic that Stephanie is back. I only wish that Evanovich would sign a Hollywood picture deal with Sandra Bullock in the lead role. Janet, work with me here, will ya!

This is a madcap adventure with a lot of slapstick - the eleventh in the Stephanie Plum Series. If you are new to the series, start with One for the Money and work your way through them.
Most of the great characters are in Eleven on Top - Morelli, Grandma Mazur, Lula, Ranger, Grandma Bella, the powder blue Buick, Bob the dog and Rex the Hamster and Stephanie's immediate family. It is like catching up on old friends.

Grandma Mazur and Grandma Bella have a ridiculous but hilarious fight at Stiva's Funeral Home; it is laugh out loud action. And you have to read about the mole - it will make you squirm and laugh at the same time. Plus Stephanie's declaration that she can play the cello - we have all done something similar and but not let it get that far. As usual, cars driven by Stephanie are blown up and she is shot and has little regard for her safety, she is saved from a tight spot at the end and lives on for book number 12.
Stephanie's inability to hold a job until Ranger comes to the rescue is funny but wears a bit thin. Lula's antics are very entertaining and she has taken on Stephanie's mantle as the most absolutely hopeless bounty hunter. Lula is in top form.
Stephanie is much closer to Morelli, and he to her, but it is still really annoying in that she can't even tell him she loves him which is pathetic given his declarations. He is so nice, and you know they are made for each other, so her behaviour seems very juvenile.
There's lots of flirtation with Ranger, and it sounds as if we may hear more about his secret/past life in future books. He kind of gives me the creeps though, however sexy he is and how much cares about Stephanie. I prefer her with Morelli as it is much more realistic and enjoyable to read than the fantasy of Ranger.
