Quote #30 – Janet Evanovich

“When I was six years old I sprinkled sugar on my head, convinced myself it was pixie dust, wished myself invisible, and walked into the boys’ bathroom at school.”

  1. Sylvia,and I love it. That was probably you,with the pixie dust in the boys locker room. 🙂


    • Nah…even at 6, I knew there was no hiding ME. I just used a drill with a sharp bit, and made my own peephole! *grin*

      These books are so funny, Felix. I probably should bring you some of them.


  2. Lol! Makes me want to find out what happened next! I need to start reading her Stephanie Plum books. I saw the movie ‘One For the Money’ and thought it was good! Of course I love both actors! I bought Janet’s book on how she writes. I found it helpful as a writer.


  3. Hi, Jennifer. I would have liked to have seen the movie, but both actors (good & cute as they are) were so badly cast in these two roles, I couldn’t bring myself to watch the movie. Hollywood does that so often, I usually won’t watch a movie about a book I love. The “real” Morelli is totally Italian, complete with black hair and melting chocolate eyes. I couldn’t imagine a a blue-eyed Irish actor…actually born Ireland…playing the part. And Ranger? Ranger is deadly. Dangerous. Intimidating. Seldom talks. Never smiles. Totally menacing! The actor playing him, while very nice looking, just looked way too sweet to my mind. And Grandma Mazur looks a lot more like Estelle Getty than Debbie Reynolds. She’s OLD. Wrinkled. Shriveled. Or as Stephanie says, the years and gravity have not been kind to her. Debbie is way too cute.

    Of course, all of that is subjective and not meant to say the movie couldn’t have been good. I have a feeling I might have liked it fine, if I hadn’t already read all the books. It’s just that after 18 books, a lot of Plum’s fans know these characters like the backs of their own hands. It’s hard to accept faces that don’t look anything like they have been described in great detail in the books. I’ve learned to love them as they were written, and there are actors out there who would have come closer, for me. Not that anyone could be 100% perfect, or anything. Just, well…MAYBE an Italian actor for Morelli? And an old woman who LOOKS like the plucked chicken Stephanie always describes her as for Grandma Mazur? And someone who would scare the bejeebers outta you if you met him on a dark street for Ranger? Seems like that’s not so much to ask….but I could just be being picky. I’m glad you liked it, anyway, and I know others who did, too.

    But by all means, you should read the books. They are so dang funny! Even when scary things happen, occasionally, they are still funny to the BONE. The kind of funny that makes you suddenly whoop out loud while reading, and thus causes many a startled glance from anyone, or any animal, in your near vicinity. Oh, do read them! And let me know what you think.
