it was amazing
Read in May, 2007

Lucky You, Skin Tight, Basket Case, Striptease...all books by Carl Hiaasen and all great. Very similar formats, also - Very bad but stupid bad guys and very good and pure good guys. The good guys always win and the bad guys get pretty much totally destroyed. But, the books are funny, rather than violent even though violence does happen...funny violence, if you will. And, the best part is that everything takes place in Florida! Often in the Everglades with heat, humidity, and bugs. Since I grew up there (Florida but not the 'glades), bugs and relentless heat bring back fond memories. Nature Girl is typical Hiaasen fare - a couple of good guys, a couple of good women, a good kid and an assortment of baddies. A good variety of bad guys as well. Oh, and they lose.

On further note...Carl Hiaasen is an excellent writer of light fiction with swatches of true life thrown in. Every one of his books has countless lines that I would love to have thought of. No complex literature but very fun reading.
