I am from Florida and can relate to the settings that Carl Hiaasen sets for this book. You should know that the audience for the book is upper teens to adults. Don't get this book if you are looking for a "Hoot" type book for your child. I loved the book and thought that there were many funny parts in it. Kept me reading on my long flight overseas.
The best Hiaasen book going
This was another wonderful, in-depth read by this author. I love how he can make his characters and the plot very complex even though it's just a stand-alone book. An excellent read with humor and action.
I got this book to replace the one I bought originally, when it was first published. I've now read Topurist Season 3 times, have loaned it out innumerable times, and shall re-read it periodically. Obviously, it's one of my favorites, and Hiaasen is one of my favorite authors.
Anyone who can appreciate Will Rogers' humor ("There ought to be one day - just one - when there is open season on senators...") would naturally appreciate a Florida native son's plea for an open season on tourists.
