This was recommended to me by my daughter who has the books. She was excited for me to get them on audio as we were taking a little trip. I could only find this in abridged version. Although it was rather enjoyable, she said so much was left out that was character development, she didn't even enjoy it. If I had not known a little about the book prior, this would have been the one and only "number" book I would have read. I plan to actually READ the first three or four books before I purchase any more of the abridged versions. I don't recommend the abridged versions AT ALL. Save your credits until Audible comes out with the Unabridged Version of these titles.

This is a really fun book to listen to. I wish there was an unabridged version. I also wish they would reissue this with a different reader. Lorelei King who does many of the later books is much better.

I first read One For The Money, begrudgingly, as a result of a friend borrowing it from the library for me having recommended that I read it. I say begrudgingly because I'm not a great fan of american literature but I was very soon hooked and manically laughing out loud at random moments, to the growing irritation of my husband. Since then I have read the books many times without tiring of them and loved the opportunity to listen to this great book in the car on my way to work (Puts you in great humour for the day!!!). However, good as this abridged version is (I think that Lori Petty has the perfect voice for Stephanie Plum) it would be better in it's entirety - Please, please, please, Simon & Schuster ask Lori back in to read us the whole BOOK! However in the meantime for those keen to meet Stephanie Plum there are two versions of the abridged books up to Three which allow us the choice of Lori Petty or Lorelei King as narrator and for my money Lori Petty slightly has the edge.

These books are an utter delight - they are so much fun. Just be aware that you might become a tad antisocial as there are 12 books (so far) in the series and once you start...I so envy those who've yet to dicover the glorious Stephanie Plum!
