I had never read any of Carl Hiaasen's books, but picked this one up on a flight and enjoyed the read. I live in Florida, and am familiar with many scene settings in this book. It was quite humorous, with just enough peculiarity to keep you interested! Definitely NOT for younger readers, as there is some language and situations that are completely adult. I will definitely pick up another book by Mr. Hiaasen whenever I need a good laugh.
Classic Carl Hiaasen! Characters, situations and plot are offbeat to bizarre, but really entertaining.
This is the funniest Carl Hiaasen book I have ever read. I laughed all the way through it. I kind of hate to give it up in case I want to read it again.
Carl Hiaasen at his best. Includes republican hookers, millionaires with a Barbie fetish. Illustrates the money hungry power brokers that have come to dominate southwest Florida these days. And the labrador is the hero of the story.
Another great one! Carl Hiaasen writes some of the funniest mysteries I've ever read. I have to concur with the reviewer who noted that he should really be thought of as a satirist. It would not be unusual to find yourelf laughing out loud as you read any of his books. They all take place in Florida, and he must have a monopoly on the greatest number of weirdos to ever populate one work. How he manages to do this continually is amazing. Try one and, promise, you'll be hooked!
