Charlie All Night - Jennifer Crusie Though I'm normally a paranormal romance reader Crusie came highly recommended for her characters' witty banter. There was some in Getting Rid of Bradley, but none here.Not only was the conversation dull, but sometimes it made no sense. Charlie says he's going to miss someone's jokes when I can't remember a single punchline being delivered. Allie reminds Charlie not to be controversial, then gets into a long discussion about sex on air with few reservations. It didn't add up.Nor did the hijinx at the radio station. I was taken out of the story multiple times when I asked myself, would that really happen? Are studios really set up that way? Why is the news on a cassette, wouldn't someone be reading that live? And so on.For leaving me frustrated, sometimes confused, and not entertained, one star.
