    One thought on “Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit?”

    1. I'm assuming that this book was written as a sequel to the movie and not the original book because Roger Rabbit has a completely different personality and is apparently not dead after all. It seems as if the author is trying entirely too hard to be funny in this book. Every single observation, no matter how minute, is stretched out into some ridiculous simile, metaphor or pun. As Sweet Brown would say in this case, "Ain't no bunny got time for that."***FINAL IMPRESSION***The author definitely tr [...]

    2. Gary K. Wolf's follow up to Who Censored Roger Rabbit is Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit,another entertaining tale with the same characters as the first book. The cliché hard-boiled detective language is still intact and smartly applied, leaving room for double-entendres and interesting ways of describing scenes and actions.In this book, which is not a prequel, and it is sort of a sequel (the story was retconned with Jessica explainingthat the previous events of the first book were dreamed by he [...]

    3. This novel feels like the Framed movie was more closely tied to it than the first novel did. Not that I know which novel was the base for the movie. Possibly both. There are scenes that seem almost cut and pasted from both novels into that movie. It mentions 'dip' as a Toon killer and Toon Town unlike the first novel. Baby Herman is indistinguishably unchanged throughout. Gone with the Wind re-imagined was a twist.

    4. Not as good as the first--but then sophomore books never are. Weird in that some of the same characters are back again even though they were killed off in the first book. Oh well, cartoons will be cartoons.

    5. So much was going on that it was kind of exhausting! Very cleverly plotted, funny and satiric, and I think I understood what was going on more than I did with Who Censored Roger Rabbit? Not as fresh as that one, though, somehow. But it is nice that (view spoiler)[Roger is a good guy, like he was in the movie. I was upset when he turned out not to be, at the end ofCensored. I think Gary Wolf had gotten attached to Roger, too, and was glad that writing this sequel to the movie gave him another cha [...]

    6. Even better than the first book. It's as though Gary K Wolf saw the movie, smiled, and then turned around and took the piss as much as he liked in this book. Many elements of the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit enter into the beginning, only to be summarily assimilated into the richer world and voice of the original world. Roger's speech impediment with the letter p is not only picked on more than once, it's in the title, and even an important plot element at one point.This appealed to my love of [...]

    7. I definitely enjoyed this more than the first book, not because the first book was bad--but because of how much I loved the movie first.Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit is an amazing blend of both worlds, taking the universe and its rules from the original novel (Toons can die, Word Balloon Speech, the comic strips, etc.) and combined it with the continuity and tone of the movie. It's still got the constantly quipping Eddie from the first, but there's a more light hearted edge that that Bob Hoskin [...]

    8. It was a slow start but it got really good towards the second half but unlike "Who Censored Roger Rabbit" it had a much nicer ending. Beware thought iut is written by Gary K Wolf THIS IS NOT A SEQUEL To Who Censored. This is in fact a sequel to the feature film "Who FRAMED Roger Rabbit." One of the flaws i disliked about the book was that toons talked through "thought balloons" despite the fact in the movie they were cartoon characters and not comic strip characters like in "Who Censored Roger R [...]

    9. It's not often that you get a chance to say this, but the sophomore entry in Gary K. Wolf's Roger Rabbit series surpasses the original!In this well-constructed hard-boiled detective novel, Eddie Valiant is hired by David O. Selznick to find a valuable box that was heisted from his office during interviews with potential leads in "Gone With the Wind." The two prime contenders? Roger Rabbit and Clark Gable.Of course, Jessica Rabbit is under consideration for the role of Scarlett O'Hara.With the go [...]

    10. A very adult Roger Rabbit that stretches the imagination. Toons speak with balloons that are tangible and can be shredded or folded into a pocket. If you are familiar with the older screen stars and the story that revolved around the making of Gone with the Wind, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard this could be comfortable read for you. If not, you might find it a struggle. Eddie's narratives are full of metaphors, and I heard Eddie as Humphrey Bogart in my head.

    11. Gary K Wolf certainly enjoys the detective lingo, and sometimes the writing is snappy, clever, and funny. But overall, it seems like there was more focus on one liners and not enough on the story. No real feel for the differences between humans and toons is established, and most of the characters are not fleshed out. Everything takes a back seat to Wolf's love of his own humor and it just doesn't make for a very enjoyable read.

    12. Previously read Dec 2008 More a re-telling of than a sequel to Who Censored Roger Rabbit, Valiant and Roger team up again to investigate some potential marital indiscretions by Jessica. Again, Wolf plays with the mystery/noir genre with mixed results - a generally entertaining read, but not exactly great literature.

    13. Awful! After the author kills Roger Rabbit in "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?" this 'sequel' reads like a lame attempt to glean some revenue off of Disney's success with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?". The worst was Eddie Valiant and Jessica Rabbit's identical but miniature sister fall in love. What? Just awful.

    14. Ugh a mug this book was rough. All the cliches that the author employed in the first book show up here, but they're somehow more annoying. This odd marrying of his writing with a plot-line akin to the movie - it just doesn't work. I know that I can't dissuade Roger Rabbit fans from reading it, but everyone else should steer clear.

    15. This book is actually a sequel to the MOVIE "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" rather than Wolf's previous novel "Who Censored Roger Rabbit." There is a passage in which Jessica relates a dream she had"," with the plot of the novel. Wolf is in effect saying he liked the movie better than he liked his own book.

    16. Disappointing. I was expecting a sequel to the first Roger Rabbit novel, which is (as is often the case) far better than the movie made from it. This, sadly, is a sequel to the movie and lacks all the interesting and intriguing aspects of the original comic strip-style Toon world. Plot came nowhere near the quality of the previous volume.

    17. Clearly a sequel to the movie, with a nice toss away mention of the original book, the story and the mystery were far more engaging. An honestly laugh out loud book for any body who enjoys a good satire!

    18. I enjoyed this more than the first. My only issue was how the ending of the first book was basically retconned and only mentioned as a dream. Actually my second issue was how Ferd spoke. I understand the point but it just became tiresome after a while. A fun gumshoe mystery again!

    19. A great and surprising sequel to the film supposedly but really a great stand alone story that is required reading for any fan of the Robert zemeckis film who framed roger rabbit which is also a great and surprising book recommend any roger rabbit property.

    20. An interesting read that is closer to the "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" movie then the original book. But it is fun.

    21. It wasn't bad, but no where near as good as the first book. This one seemed to be a bit more tied in to the movie, at least to begin with. It went off on its own path soon enough.

    22. This book was a poor interpretation of me. I can't believe the author even made this dreadful book. This book was poorly rushed out, so Gary K. Wolf just wanted this to be a sequel movie.
