Another super Hiaasen novel full of wacky characters that inhabit South Florida. This is about the 5th Hiaasen I have read and I would have to say its one of the best. (Others I have read include Tourist Season, Double Whammy, Strip Tease, Lucky You). Hiaasen has a knack for coming up with characters that are so memorable. Chemo and his Weed whacker prosthesis, the incompetent Dr. Graveline, and Reynaldo Flemm: the Geraldo like journalist in seach of a scoop are unforgettable. Even though this novel goes over the top in the grisly department, I would highly recommend it.

I've enjoyed quite a few of Carl Hiaasen's books now, and this one did not disappoint me. Though not as humorous as some of his others this one delivers a solid plot line, memorable characters and, of course, Florida weirdness.

I'd rank it an 8 on a scale of 10 amongst his other books.

Zany. If you're in the right mood, Hiaasen's books can be a hysterical blend of characters, over-the-top situations, and an engaging storyline. If not, they can fall a little flat - the story isn't strong enough if you aren't enjoying the craziness.
