I have only ever listened to the Stephanie Plum books on cd/cassette...I think I'm spoiled having gotten to listen to them read by a couple great readers. If I didn't already have a long list of books I really want to get (and only a couple credits to work with!), I might consider some or all of her books.

I have read and listened to them on cd.  I think reading was better.  The cds were silly.  Easy reads though.

I liked the first 5-6 of them I read but after that it got to the point where I thought that Stephanie Plum was TSTL (too stupid to live) and gave up on them.

I liked the CDs better. I also think that the quality of the series and believability of the plot lines went WAY down as it went on.

The Plum books are great for like the 1st half of the series and if you space them out. After that they are like reading the same book over and over again: Ranger or Joe? Lulu pigs out and dresses like a tramp, Gradma Mazur crashes a funeral, Stephanie gets covered in something nasty adn her car is blown up.   Having said that-I will probably get the next one from the library anyway just to see if she finally does something different.
