if you are familiar with Hiassen you will love it, if not check it out if you love social and political satire, Florida or hate telemarketers

I always enjoy reading Hiaasen's novels and this was no exception! Although the story was a little contrived, I enjoyed the interaction between all of the wacky characters. As usual, Hiaasen's comments on society were on target including his jabs at telemarketers, religion, and development and tourism in Florida. I recently read Skin Tight which was probably one of my favorite Hiaasen's but I also recommend Nature Girl highly.

Another great book about the wild and hilariously funny characters Hiaasen finds in southern Florida. I often laugh out loud while reading his books, and this time was no exception. A divorced couple really want to be together except she "hears things" and goes beserk over such things as a telemarketer's hard sell. In fact she goes so beserk, she plans an incredibly elaborate revenge that involves getting the guy down to Florida and taking him to a deserted island so she can lecture him about proper behavior. But that's only the beginning...

My hardcover copy is in good shape but the dust cover is slightly torn at one corner (and a bit wrinkled). But the book itself is totally unmarked and fine and fresh.

Don't we all hate to get telemarketer calls...? Well Hiaasen takes that anger and runs with it. A cast of off balance characters weave into each other's lives for a comical, over the top payback for telemarketers from the books 'heroine", Honey Santana. Not a believable story, his books never are, but a fun weekend read.
