My name is Tiffany but not Tiffany Jones! :)
If you're looking for a good suspense story that will keep you on the edge of your seat...this is NOT the book. The best thing about Who Killed Tiffany Jones is discussing the suspects and trying to answer the questions in the back of the book. These questions make the book an ideal read for a book club since there are so many characters to discuss. The multiple characters are what make the book not so enjoyable. There are simply too many characters and not enough character development, which makes the book not satisfying at all. In the end, since we don't really get to know the characters, the reader doesn't really care much about Tiffany Jones or any of the other dead characters. And since we don't care about Tiffany, we really don't care too much about who killed her either. Because the 'solution' to the book is not included, the reader has to track down the answers on their own, by contacting the publisher. Trying to find out 'whodunnit' was a task in itself. There are no clear instructions in the book or on the publisher's website. After multiple calls and emails to the publisher, the answers were finally sent by fax. Overall, reading the book required way too much work with not enough payoff for the individual reader. However, the book does lend itself to group discussion. But if you're reading this book by yourself, ultimately, the answer to 'Who Killed Tiffany Jones?' is...'WHO CARES?'
From reading the first chapter caught my attention I just know the pages will not stop turning. I like to read books that catch my attention fron the first page.
I read Who Killed Tiffany Jones? from beginning to end in the first sitting. I just couldn¹t put the book down. I bought the novel because of the cover photo and the offer of a $10,000 prize for solving the mystery. Being a mystery novel buff, I thought it sounded like great fun and a real challenge. But when I read it, I got caught up in the story and the wonderful characters. I felt like I was meeting interesting people from the worlds of politics, music, and high finance who were taken straight from today¹s headlines. And while most of them get killed along the way, characters like Ruff Daddy, the politician Dave ¿Tater¹ Hamlin, and the English reporter, Mariana Blair stuck with me even after I put the book down. I¹m going over the story again, of course, page by page, and I¹m enjoying every minute. It¹s like doing an entertaining cross word puzzle. I haven¹t figured it out yet, but it's worth a try. Who Killed Tiffany Jones? is a great read. They didn't need the prize as an incentive. I recommend it for everyone! I give the novel 5 Stars.
What a surprise! When I picked up this book I was expecting a heavy, slow moving mystery with lots of twists and turns and a really complicated plot. Well, there are lots of twists and turns and the plot is complex, but this is a lighthearted, fast-moving spoof. It's hilarious. What an unassuming, delightful entertainment. The characters are quirky and unusual, and you can tell that the writers had a lot of fun. It kind of reminds me of the movie 'Pulp Fiction.' I was so involved with Kim Carlyle and her attempt to find the killer that I lost track of the clues. Now I have to go back and read it again . . . carefully. Five Stars!!
Reading this book was a lot of fun. I loved it. I got started because I wanted to win the $10,000.00 reward but then when I got into it I forgot about the reward and started reading it because it is really well written, full of suspense and it gets you caught up in the plot and the characters, who are a scream. I throughly enjoyed it. I have to read it again to begin figuring out the clues.
