The Stone Barrington series should end

Would you try another book from Stuart Woods and/or Tony Roberts?

I have listened to other Stuart Woods books narrated by Tony Roberts and have been impressed with past books and the other series.


Has Sex, Lies & Serious Money turned you off from other books in this genre?

I have read or listened to every Stone Barrington book, as he was previously one of my favorite characters up until the last few years. It seems as if Stuart Woods is now simply writing books in order to meet his deadlines. This series has been absolutely horrible for a couple of years now, while this last book will also be the last one I download. Each book is now nothing more than a test to see how much money each wealthy character can unrealistically spend. There is no real depth or intriguing storylines within these books anymore. The first 2-3 hours of this book were useless and mind numbing.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Tony Roberts?

I think Tony Roberts does a great job with his narrations. It is too bad storyline is horrific, as there is only so much Mr. Roberts can do with the material.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

This booked sparked anger and disappointment because I remember when the Stone Barrington series was exciting. Apparently the primary storyline for this series is now how to spend millions and millions of dollars at a moment's notice. Until I hear a future book is the last in this series, I can't waste my time listening to any future Stone Barrington books. Such a sad decline of a once great series.

No real plot, just excuse for sex and shopping

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is just rich people indulging themselves in sex and spending gross amounts of money. Very thin plot and just when you think it might get interesting, the book suddenly ends. I do not recommend this book.


Did Tony Roberts do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, but Dino's nouveau is grating and irritating.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sex, Lies & Serious Money?

The entire book could be deleted.


Any additional comments?

This is a ridiculous book.
