A Somewhat Disappointing Read
on 30 October 2010
"High Five" is a comedy/thriller about a bad bounty hunter called Stephanie Plum. It's, perhaps unsurprisingly, the 5th book in the Stephanie Plum series.
In this book, Plum's asked to investigate the disappearance of her tight fisted Uncle Fred who disappeared while going to complain about his garbage bill with the local waste management company.
All in all, it wasn't a bad book. There was a decent story. It was a little predictable, but then you need that in "serial books" every so often. I think people'd be a little shocked if the series suddenly became something totally different.
My two grumbles with the book would be that Plum isn't improving fast enough as a bounty hunter for my liking, which is a little irritating. In addition there were times when the humor felt a little forced, which is a shame. I wanted to laugh, but I found I was groaning internally instead sometimes.
