Where does Ruthless People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very high. The narrator pulls of an incredible range of characters and the writing is excellent. I got totally wrapped up in the story and invested in the characters... which, considering they are all pretty awful people, is incredible. The book is dark, brutal but brilliant... and the narration brings out the dry humor very well.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruthless People?
No spoilers but there was a really amazing section where one of the characters that seems cold as ice has a real crisis. It's a major turning point for the main relationship and I thought it was handled really well.
What does Joel Froomkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He certainly made me smile... Melody and Liam have a really dry, wicked wit and he pulls it off really well. The heroine is kind of Sigourney Weaver meets Anjelina Jolie and I was kind of shocked how convincing it was. He handles that and the Irish and Italian characters believably - and considering how many different leading characters he had to pull off... I totally went along for the ride.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Meet Melody and Liam. Now run for your life.

This book is freaking awesome. The lead characters, Melody and Liam are sexy, savage and impossible not to love and loathe. McAvoy has created this huge cast of characters that each get a chance to take the narrator's helm... It should feel like a mess - but instead it gives an incredible rich tapestry and nuance to the work. It's a huge mafia romance saga - but it's the psychological interplay between the two leads and their desire for power playing against their passion for each other that keeps you totally engaged. The narration is pretty amazing... For a male performer to be able to create a huge arrange of male as well as female characters that aren't silly or cartoony was really impressive. I can't wait to read more in the series. It's sexy and sinful as hell.

this was great!! full of twists and with some things you think was funny. would listen again
I have always loved a good mafia romance, but throw a kick ass woman and you definitely have my attention.
Meland Liam story gripped me from the first chapter. all the characters came alive for me and the plot had me coming back for more. The narrator was fantastic. this is not something that happens a lot.. that being said I would have preferred a woman to Narrate Melodies part, but still it was fantastic. wow I seem to be using that word a lot. but I truly did enjoy it!
the second book was a one click for me and no thought included. it was that easy of a choice.
the writer had me experiencing the highs and their Lows. The last chapter had me wanting to turn to the next book straight away.
This book was a five star for me and I highly recommend it. grab it today!
