I have read 3 Hiaasen novels now and all three seem to follow the same themes, characterizations and plot lines.

This was my least favorite of the three. I would recommend Skinny Dip rather than this offering.

My first Carl Hiaasen novel! Hysterically funny. Escaped animals, con artist, generally odd people & the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew

I always laugh when I see reviews from people who don't like Carl Hiaasen books, because he's one of my favorites! I wish he'd write more books, because I've read them all...

Typical Carl Hiaasen. Set in the Everglades, with a cast of very zany characters. I always get sucked into his books, even as I sometimes wonder "why am I reading this"? However, it is a laugh-out-loud book, one you can pick up and put down.

Really loved this one. The focus on environmental issues is sideways to the main theme, which is corruption leading to unsafe buildings. But of course the enviros save the day & the bad guys get stomped on my Mother Nature.

Another entertaining book by Carl Hiaasen. Love his eclectic characters and how he twists the plots together. A great peak into a world of lifestyles that I'm sure really do occur in real life.

I love books by this author, and this one was no exception. It was an especially nice surprise to be introduced the the character "The Captain", as he shows up in another book, Skinny Dip. As usual, Hiaasen brings together seemingly unrelated characters whose only thing in common seems to be the tremendous hurricane that hits Florida, putting into motion a series of events that are all eventually tied up nicely at the end. If you enjoy a good storyline with lots of action, some quirky humor, and characters that you can relate to, I would definitely recommend this book!!

Living in Florida, working at a theme park, Carl's work hits home for me. I love his humor, a little trashy in all the right places, definitely "R" rated. Great departure..

It is always fun to read a Carl Hiaasen book... characters you love to hate; clever but not silly; hilarious escapades and insightful excursions to Florida's seamier side.

As usual Carl Hiaasen has written one of his "sick" novels. Honeymooners, con artists, vipers, monkeys, a mobile home salesman, and a law school dropout......and of course, the Florida Keys! Go Carl!!!!

Funny and very quirky. I've read several of Hiaasen's books, but I've discovered he is an acquired taste.

Carl Hiaasen writes another offbeat story of odd people,hurricane destruction and how it really works. A fascinating story with fascinating charactors woven through it.

Up to Carl's usual standard. He weaves a good tale. I could stand a little less whining about south Florida politics, but that is his world.

A law school dropout will be chasing one Gaboon viper; a troop of storn-shocked monkeys and a newfound love life, while tourists by the thousands bail from the Florida Keys. We're now entering the hurricane zone, where hell and hilarity rule. In the hands of masterful, merciless Carl Hiaasen, we're going to have some weather!
