On behalf of my husband, who is the fiction reader in our family, I submit his review of Skinny Dip.
He found the story line was very interesting and fun, in a weird kind of way. My husband is not one for much baffoonery, so that says alot about his appreciation for this writer's work.
The vulgarity was something that my husband did not like, and said that he wished the writer would have toned it down. The story held his attention throughout, though, and deserved to be told without so much profanity.
A 4.5 star rating would be appropriate for Skinny Dip other than the colorful language, which brings it down to 3.5.
Great fun read! A little quirky, but a very entertaining book!
An amusing book to be sure. There was romance in this book, but it was very low-key, the main plot being revenge.
Since this is a light book, I didn't expect much character growth, but there is - surprisingly - a couple. Behind the humor and the satire, there is definitely a push for environmental awareness, which I think is fantastic. I mean, if you're dead, how are you going to spend all of that cash?
This is certainly a laugh-out-loud book, from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.
Terrific, hilarious read. Read it cover to cover in one sitting!
I LOVE CARL HIAASEN!! HE NEVER FAILS TO ENTERTAIN!!!
Great read.... clever plot, well developed character.
Hiassen's talents are on full display here in this pulpy and enjoyable Florida thriller.
Interesting to have a murder mystery where you know from the beginning Who Dunnit. Positive book on the strength of a woman. In the end, everyone gets pretty much what they deserve... Nice.
Very funny story. Highly recommended for plenty of chuckles and a few genuine laugh out loud moments.
How come these novels never take place in South Dakota?
This was the first Carl Hiaasen book that I've read, and I really enjoyed it. I will be looking for more by him!
