Avete presente quei libri che vorreste durassero per sempre ma non potete fare a meno di divorare? Ecco, "Three to get deadly" è QUEL libro. So -razionalmente- che non è un libro che potrebbe salvare l'umanità intera dall'ignoranza o una pietra miliare del mondo della letteratura.. Ma io l'ho amato profondamente *_* Mentre leggevo continuavo a ripetermi "Smettila di bruciartelo così velocemente!", ma poi quando non lo leggevo un grande vuoto si impadroniva di me.. Mi mancava tantissimo! *_* Finora (sono solo a tre, ma il pensiero che prima o poi la serie finirà mi fa già stare male) è sicuramente il migliore!! Innanzitutto, mi ha fatto crepare dalle risate.. Un universo costellato da personaggi talmente sciroccati che vi verrà una voglia matta di farne parte.. Come non amare fra tutti gli altri Lula e nonna Mazur?! Uniche! Incredibili! Stephanie poi.. Niente, penso che sia uno dei personaggi preferiti in assoluto. La amo perché è tutto fuorché perfetta, certe volte è sfigatissima, non ne azzecca una.. Mi piacerebbe conoscerla. O che fosse mia amica. Ci divertiremmo, lo so! Joe Morelli, non ne parliamo. Seriamente, esiste un personaggio più sexi di lui? :DD Sono follemente innamorata!
"Uh-oh" I said. "What uh-oh?" "I don't know how to break this to you, but the floor is moving. Either we're having an eartquake, or else I'm drunk". "You only had three schnapps!" "I'm not much of a drinker. And I didn't have supper." My voice sounded like it was resonating from a tin can, far far away. "Oh boy," Morelli said. "How drunk are you?" I blinked and squinted at him. He had four eyes. I hated when that happened. "You have four eyes". "That's not a good sign".
“I make lots of mistakes. I try hard not to make the same mistake more than three or four times.”
“I took the stool next to him, raising an eyebrow at the coffee and cruller on the counter. "Thought you weren't into internal pollution," I said. Lately Ranger'd been on a health food thing. "Props," Ranger told me. "Didn't want to look out of place." I didn't want to burst his fantasy bubble, but the only time Ranger wouldn't look out of place would be standing in a lineup between Rambo and Batman.”
“When I was a little girl I wanted to be a reindeer-the flying kind. I spent a couple years galloping around looking for lichen and fantasizing about boy reindeer. Then one day I saw Peter Pan and my reindeer phase was over. I didn't understand the allure of not growing up, because every little girl got boobs and go steady. I did understand that a flying Peter Pan was better than a flying reindeer. Mary Lou had seen Peter Pan too, but Mary Lou's ambition was to be Wendy, so Mary Lou and I made a good pair. On most any day we could be seen holding hands, running through the neighborhood singing, "I can fly! I can fly!" If we'd been older this probably would have started rumors. The Peter Pan stage was actually pretty short-lived because a few months into Peter Pan I discovered Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman couldn't fly, but she had big, fat bulging boobs crammed into a sexy Wondersuit. Barbie was firmly entrenched as role model in the burg, but Wonder Woman gave her a good run for her money. Not only did Wonder Woman spill over her Wondercups but she also kicked serious ass. If I had to name the single most influential person in my life it would have to be Wonder Woman. All during my teens and early twenties I wanted to be a rock star. The fact that I can't play a musical instrument or carry a tune did nothing to diminish the fantasy. During my more realistic moments I wanted to be a rock star's girlfriend.”
“...I blink back the threat of tears, swiped at my nose and narrowed my eyes. "Listen to me, you two bags of monkey shit, "I yelled. "I am not in a good mood. My car keeps stalling. The day before yesterday I threw up on Joe Morelli. I was called a fat cow by my ex-husband. And if that isn't enough...my hair is ORANGE! ORANGE, FOR CHRISSAKE! And now you have the gall to force yourself into my home and threaten my hamster. Well, you have gone too far. You have crossed the line!”
When something needs to be ironed I put it in the ironing basket. If a year goes by and the item is still in the basket I throw the item away. This is a good system since eventually I end up only with clothes that don’t need ironing.”
“I've never been in this part of Trenton before. I don't feel comfortable driving around buildings that haven't got gang slogans sprayed on them. Look at this place. No boarded-up windows. No garbage in the gutter. No brothers selling goods on the street. Don't know how people can live like this.”

Not one of my favorite Stephanie Plum novels... for some reason this case didn't really keep me interested. There wasn't much Grandma Mazur antics in this book, but a bit more Ranger. Despite the fact that this book didn't keep me chained to my seat it was a fun enough ride. I did laugh out loud at some points so even though the story itself was not memorable it was still great to read.

My review: I feel like I zipped right through this audio book and I guess I kind of did. I couldn’t help myself; I was so enticed with the story line, I had to stay up past my normal “old lady” bed time and listen. I managed to drag myself to work the next day and kick myself for staying up too late. Then, that night I’d do it all over again just to see what kind of mess Stephanie would get herself into.
Three to Get Deadly is the third audiobook in the Stephanie Plum series and continues to pack a punch. Stephanie is a lingerie buyer turned bounty hunter and from previous listens, always manages to find herself in a predicament.
Stephanie is on the trail of bond jumper and local business owner, Moses Bedemier (aka Uncle Mo). Uncle Mo was picked up by a rookie officer for carrying a concealed weapon. He bonded out quickly and missed his scheduled court date. That put Stephanie on the simple case. She was hesitant, as she should have been. How on earth would the neighbors react when they found out she was hunting down Uncle Mo? Everyone loved him, young and old. For years he sold penny candy, ice cream and soda to the local children and families. Stephanie winds up teaming up with Lula, a former prostitute who’s decided she wants to try her hand at bounty hunting. Lula is a hoot! She’s a woman after my own heart, sturdy and loves to eat. She’s almost fearless… Almost! Luckily, Joe Morelli is there to lend a hand yet again. Morelli and all of his sexiness help Stephanie dig deeper into the case.
Again, I loved this audiobook by Janet Evanovich. She hasn’t disappointed me yet and I can’t wait to dive into the fourth book.
Narrator Review: In my last review of Two for the Dough, I wasn’t completely sold on C.J. Critt’s narration, but now I’m in love. I’m easily swayed and she did an amazing job on this audiobook.

Didn't like this book that much. The main case wasn't really interesting, not enough Stephanie&Morelli.. and worse than anything else: not nearly enough Grandma Mazur.
I have to admit though that Stephanie and Mary Lou spying on Morelli was priceless! And there's been more Lula, I'm starting to think I actually like her.

Ci ho messo quasi 5 mesi, ma alla fine ce l'ho fatta! Non è che questo non mi sia piaciuto, è solo che mi ha preso meno degli altri; all'inizio l'ho letto intervallandolo con altri libri, poi l'ho messo da una parte per più di tre mesi, finché non l'ho ripreso in mano e in due giorni ho spolverato le ultime cento pagine. Il caso non è dei più belli, secondo me viene tirata un po' troppo per le lunghe, ma Stephanie e Morelli sono sempre...
"You ever think about getting married?” “Sure.” “Well?” “It’s been my sad observation that cops don’t make wonderful husbands. In all good conscience, I’d have to marry someone I didn’t especially like, so I wouldn’t feel crummy about ruining her life.” “So you’d marry someone like me?” Morelli’s face creased into a broad smile. “I hate to admit this, but I actually like you. You’re out of the race.” “Jeez,” I said. “What a relief.

El tercer libro de la serie relata como Stephanie busca la pista de Moses Bedemier, un anciano que vende caramelos y helados en su tienda y que le cae bien a todo Trenton. Ha desaparecido, y al no presentarse en el juzgado en la fecha indicada, la caza-recompensas empieza a investigar. No tarda en verse envuelta en las muertes de vendedores de drogas y fugitivos resbaladizos que la persiguen poniendo su vida en peligro. Con la ayuda de su familia, el ya conocido policía Joe Morelli, su compañero de trabajo Ranger y Lula, al archivadora de la empresa para la que Stephanie trabaja, conseguirá dar con todas las respuestas antes de que la borren del mapa.
Como siempre, de forma divertida y cómica, Stephanie va de aventura en aventura, encontrándose de todo por el camino. La disparan varias veces en un día, la timan con la venta de un coche, se gasta un dineral en arreglar dicho coche, es amenaza por hombres que llevan máscaras, se le queda el pelo naranja tras un tinte, y para colmo, Morelli empieza a pasar de ella. Menos mal que al final acaba resolviendo sus casos, y de alguna forma u otra, saliendo adelante sana y salva.

Una delle cose buone della serie di Stephanie Plum è che non si fa fatica a ricordarsi il numero dell'episodio.
La carriera da bounty hunter della protagonista si fa sempre più complessa, anche grazie all'aiuto dei suoi improbabili soci (questa volta tocca a Lula, ex prostituta e ora archivista dell'ufficio).
La sottotrama è sempre la stessa - cercare i cattivi, rischiare di farsi ammazzare, chiedere aiuto a Ranger e a Morelli, cercare di non farsi sedurre da Morelli, trovare una macchina che funzioni e che non sia così riconoscibile, non farsi mettere in imbarazzo dalla propria famiglia - ma le indagini si fanno un filo più serie e complesse.
Sempre una lettura godibile e veloce, ironica e divertente al punto da non riuscire a trattenere qualche risata.
