Item description for Perfectly Plum: An Unauthorized Celebration of the Life, Loves and Other Disasters of Stephanie Plum, Trenton Bounty Hunter (Smart Pop series) by Leah Wilson...

Speculating about the cultural metaphors in Janet Evanovich's wildly popular mystery series (which includes 11 books, from One for the Money to Eleven on Top), this anthology takes a look at lingerie-buyer-turned-bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum and catalogs her bad luck with cars (she's blown up quite a few), her good luck with men, her unorthodox approach to weapon storage, and the rich tapestry of her milieu: Trenton, New Jersey, also known as The Burg. The contributors praise the way the series smartly spoofs that familiar chick-lit epiphany—I have a bad job and what I really want is a good man!—in "Bounty Hunting as a Metaphor for Dating," "Why Stephanie Should Quit Her Job . . . but Never Will," and  "Nothing Better than a Bad Boy Gone Good." Several essays veer from the chick-lit perspective and focus instead on the comic theme of luck and chance that ties Stephanie to the barroom gamblers and gangster meanies of her home town in "Luck of the Italian?: Skill Versus Chance."

Reviews - What do customers think about Perfectly Plum: An Unauthorized Celebration of the Life, Loves and Other Disasters of Stephanie Plum, Trenton Bounty Hunter (Smart Pop series)?

Do you like Stephanie Plum series??  Aug 15, 2008
This is a paperback by other authors who review the
series on Stephanie Plum. So, it is rather like a
fun assignment...first, you have to read a few of the
books; then see if you agree or disagree on their review.
The chapter I found exceedingly hysterical is on car insurance.
I think it is a good read but perhaps I am a teeny bit prejudice
about this series, as I think it is one of the best!! You
GREAT READ!!!  Jun 13, 2008
Rex Is The Perfect Man For Stephanie  Jan 3, 2008
This book is filled with interesting essays on the life of Stephanie Plum. There are Morelli vs Ranger articles - a heated topic of debate - but I think you'll find that Rex takes the cake (and piece of pizza crust and grape...) as the perfect man for Stephanie.

The various viewpoints offer us new ways to look at the books and inspired me to re-read the books!
Plum fans, don't bother  Dec 21, 2007
I ended up using this as a "bathroom book" because the essays are quick reads. However, if you are really a Plum fan and were hoping for the same entertainment value as the books, don't bother. These are serious essays that analyze the characters and their motivations ad nauseum. I was hoping for laughs and was disappointed.
"Plum" seriew  Sep 2, 2007
I love the Stephanie Plum series of novels. I really hate reading so I purchase them both in audio for me and paperback for houseguests and friends. I'm drawn in with the excitment and adventure of the story that Janet seems to capture in every novel. It has twists, turns, Lula, mystery, wonder, and of course two very "HOT" men! Who wouldn't want a mix of both men. :} I would recommend the "Plum" series, her "Full" series, as well as her earlier novels of mixed titles. They're all great fun and keep you as a reader at the edge of your seat waiting to see if a cars going to get blown up, who's died this week, who attends the pot roast dinner, who she sleeps with next, what will burn down next, and will she get her man (love or bounty). I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. I look forward to #14 in the "Plum" series, the next "Full" novel, and the new novel Janet recently wrote with a new author being released this October. Thank you!
