Entertaining book

Would you listen to This Doesn't Happen in the Movies again? Why?

I enjoyed the story very much, but I generally don't listen to books more than once.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was very good. The story flowed so well that I was not in a hurry to know exactly what was going on.


What does Johnny Peppers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Peppers has a great voice and he added accents and pitches which added value to the characters.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's only one take in reel life.

Fun Retro Mystery

Very enjoyable listen; light, and entertaining, and just enough mystery to keep you listening. I could almost see Humphrey Bogart in my mind's eye. :)
