I do prefer this book to the S.Plum series, I think the author has achieved a better style here, it is fast, funny and keeps you interested in finding out what will happen next. But, beware, the book deals with the seven sins and guess what? This book is just the beginning, at least there should be six more coming in the near future.
I was really looking forward to Wicked Appetite when I first heard about it - I thought it sounded amusing and exciting. Disappointingly, the reverse is true. It is very often extremely unfunny and there was not a hint of excitement to be found within the pages.
I enjoyed a few things in the book - principle amongst them the description of Liz's cupcakes, mostly because it made me hungry to eat some of them. Another large benefit was the slightness of Wicked Appetite, which meant I didn't have to endure it for too long.
There was very little other than that to enjoy. The plot was preposterous; the manner in which it was explained to Liz was paper-thin; the characters were barely two dimensional, let alone three. I couldn't tell you anything about the motivations of Diesel, Liz, Glo, Wulf and any of the rest of the cast of characters. What's more, thanks to the frivolous manner of writing, I couldn't have cared either.Read more ›
However, reading the first few pages of 'Wicked Appetite', I realised that this was going to be a really fun(ny) and entertaining story and bought it.
I was not disappointed. A great and fun story, which made me laugh out loud in several places. Loved the characters of Lizzy and Diesel (I wouldn't mind a bodyguard like Diesel for myself), and adored the character of Gloria aka Glo (hope to see more of her as Lizzy's sidekick).
There were, however, two things I didn't like: One was the monkey: apart from giving the finger every 3 minutes, he didn't do much else. I found him irritating and he didn't add anything important to the story.
And secondly, I didn't care for the neverending cries of "Jeez Louise" which came from Lizzy, who is supposed to be 28 years old, and not 13.
Other than those two things, I really enjoyed the book.
They are off on a search for some priceless relics which could unleash havoc on the world if they fall into the wrong hands. Put that together with a one-eyed cat called Cat, a monkey called Carl and a bakery assistant called Gloria - or Glo to her friends who doesn't quite understand the book of spells she's just bought and the reader is in for a roller coaster ride.
This isn't quite my usual sort of reading but I found it entertaining and well written and I loved the humour. The characters are marvellously quirky and there are plenty of scenes which involved cupcakes. If you want light entertainment with plenty of magical happenings and lots of marvellous one liners then this could be the book for you. I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
