    Might be best of janet's series

    I have read Seven on Top three times. That should tell you more than you need to know about me. I love Janet Evanovich for the same reason I dislike so many other of her contemporaries: she doesn't write with pretense, she doesn't pretend she's writing heavy-duty, 'thinking person's' mysteries (see Tami Hoag or even Stephen King). Stephanie Plum is really such a wonderful character, and such an endearing loser-trying-not-to-be-a-loser. I identify with her, and I suspect a lot of others do as well. Evanovich is such a marvel at creating seemingly simple characters, but giving them real 'life' on the page through the pure magic of dialogue. Look at DeChooch in this book -- you know this guy just by the way he talks. You know his pals Ziggy and Benny are washed-up wise guys who are just trying to do that famous honorable thing. Mooner is memorable, grandma Mazur is a hoot, as usual the perfect Valerie marvelous Lula (what would the series be without Lula?). These characters and many more come to life through Evanovich's simple prose and dynamite dialogue. All of us, I think, know or have known people like this. I've read all of Evanovich's books, and they're wonderful. I even like Ranger, Trenton's version of a one-line western Gary Cooper. In this seventh novel, the evil women lurking in the background are really kind of scary. I like the way Evanovich writes: it's smooth, seamless, deceptive. She is very funny, yet we tend to forget that this kind of laugh-out-loud funny is extremely difficult to do. Just try it sometime if you doubt it. I can imagine that wildly funny and ancient grandma Mazur in my mind, that bag of bones with the innocent yet blunt mouth ('his penis is kinda dead'). She's so 'real,' as so many other Evanovich characters are 'real'. I knew a crazy woman like grandma Mazur when I was a kid: she would hang around funeral homes and get royally pissed off over a closed casket. And yes: she was once caught trying to pry one open. Even Evanovich's dog Bob is hilarious. And what hero has a hamster for a pet? Janet's a terrifically imaginative writer with a natural gift for humor, and in Stephanie Plum she has created an indelible hero(ine) who just stays with you. The reader is pulling for Stephanie all the way. We want her to succeed. She's so vulnerable, but so honest, decent and hard-working. She's always at odds with herself, wondering what her next move should be. I love characters like that. Life ain't easy, and Stephanie knows it. We can really identify with someone who is so flawed. If we look closely at ourselves, we too are decent, honest, etc., but we too are flawed. Stephanie always tries to do her best, and so does her creator, Evanovich. Can't understand why Plum hasn't been made into a movie. She's even ideal material for a tv series. Evanovich now faces the same problem so many other writers face: her own success. When you create a great character (and group of characters), where do you go from here? I love Evanovich's books, and I look forward to no. 11 in the continuing round of Plum (mis)adventures.

    This is my second go round with this collection. I read it about 2 years ago. I could hardly get off the floor I laughed so hard. I feel she could have left out Valerie and the kids, they really did nothing to help the book. Of course the competition between Morelli and Ranger gets hotter and hotter. I can't decide which I like better, they are both so hot. Stephanie is the most hilarious accident prone, misfortunate bounty hunter who if she didn't have bad luck she'd have no luck at all. Start from book one and wear a diaper because I guarantee you will pee your pants.

    Seven Minuetes in Pony Heaven pt. 2

    Applejack turned to the others as more moans emmitted from Twilights closet. "I think we should leave em alone" AJ stated. "We'll just use Twilights upstairs bedroom." The others agreed. Next up: "Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash!" Announced Twilight. Rainbow smirked. She had always been crushing on the shy mare, and this was her chance to kiss her. Fluttershy blushed a deep red color and followed Dash up the stairs to Twilights bed. Dash waited at the end of the bed. "Why dont you lay down?" Dash saud to Fluttershy as she walked in the room. "Ok..." the yellow pegasus said shyly. She layed down on her back on Twi's bed. Rainbow hovered over her, lowering onto Shy. Once she was on top of her, Rainbow kis<_>sed her. Fluttershy closed her eyes and started kis<_>sing back. Rainbow pulled away to breathe. Turned on by the loud moans from the closet downstairs and being on top of her long time crush, Rainbow decided to take it further. Sliding down, Dash positioned her muzzle right on Fluttershys pus<_>sy. Rainbow licked it slowly, making Fluttershy moan. To be continued...
