Troublemaker 1: A Barnaby and Hooker Graphic Novel

Customer Reviews:

Buy for the artwork...not the story

By Still a Fan - July 20, 2010

First let me say that I love Barnaby and Hooker. I bought both Metro Girl and Motor Mouth in book form and on CDs so that I could listen to it in the car on long trips. When I saw another book with these two, I pre-ordered it. The package arrived last night and I couldn't wait to read it. Then I opened the package...graphic novel. Yuck!

After sulking for a couple of hours, I did sit down and read it. The story is simple (Rosa is missing) and so is the language. "My name is Alex Barnaby. I once stole an eighteen-wheeler and drove it to Miami."

My main gripe about the book is it's not finished. This is only chapter 1 thru 4. I also don't like the font that is used in the ballons that go along with the artwork. It's small and thin. I had to take my glasses off to actually be able to focus on the print.

On the upside...the artwork is beautiful. The artist put more time and effort into the book than the authors did and gets the lowest credit... read more

Amazing!

By S. Smith - August 3, 2010

It's amazing to me that anyone still buys an Evanovich book. How many worthless books does an author have to produce before devoted fans stop buying?? I stopped after Plum Spooky. Before that, I knew when the release date was for each book, and bought the very day it came out. I loved all the numbered Plum books, the off numbered ones, and even her previously published romantic novels. Imagine my surprise, when #14 was written in what seemed to be a completely different style! It was beyond boring, the humor fell flat on it's face. I wondered if this was really Janet Evanovich writing this?? Well, everyone has an off day. So, when Plum Spooky came out, I bought it sight unseen, sure that the Janet I knew would be back in her true form. I couldn't believe that Plum Stupid, uh, I mean Plum Spooky, was as bad as it was. Very much, in fact, like #14. When #15 came out, I wasn't dumb enough to buy it sight unseen. When I looked it over, I quickly realized it was as bad as the last two. I... read more

You must be kidding

By Reacher Fan 1909 "Tourmaline" - July 20, 2010

I cannot believe what a money grubbing piece of nonsense this disgrace of so called book is. Shame on Janet Evanovich, her daughter and the publisher. This is no 'novel', graphic or otherwise. It's a pathetic comic with a hardcover that takes less than 20 minutes to read. The artwork is beautiful. The story is beyond lame.

DO NOT waste your money. One entire page had all of about 7 lines of dialogue, another 3 lines. This wouldn't even qualify as a short story if sold by the word. The page count was heavily padded by the artwork, which is just not a substitute for plot or content. Honestly, it reads like a first year writing class assignment and dressed up with great artwork and that does not a graphic novel make.

I am so over Janet Evanovich and her ridiculous money making schemes. And shame on Amazon for promoting this rip-off.

PS: I actually did an estimated word count for this graphic novel. It's under 1,500 words. To put this in... read more
