The book "Tourist Season" by Carl Hiaasen was a good book for a lot of reasons. "Tourist Season" tells the effect of a few murders has on Miami, Florida and how the main character must work to solve them and prevent more from happening. Not only did it have a good plot and a good variety of characters but it also had good meanings and messages behind it.
The plot of the book follows Brian Keys, a journalist turned privet investigator as he tries to solve the murder of the head of the city's chamber of commerce. The chamber of commerce murder is only the second one to turn up so far. Brian must go through many obstacles including football players, politicians, and police with a group of fanatics.
The cast of characters in "Tourist Season" is a variety of personalities. They include privet investigators, journalists, beauty queens, police officers and a group with a passion to save the environment. The variety of them all is great because it gives you a taste of everything and helps allow people to see different view points and understand. It lets one see inside other people’s lives; even if the characters of this book aren't real there are people out there with the same ideas as them. The book can help people see into their mindset.
Carl Hiaasen brings up several issues in his book that take place in real life that something should be done about. Throughout the book Hiaasen mainly focuses on the environment, it is the main idea of the book. The idea of protecting the environment is the main idea of the book, when reading it becomes very clear that informing people of it is important to Hiaasen for protecting it is a huge part of "Tourist Season"
"Tourist Season" clearly reveals what Hiaasen is trying to tell his readers. He wants them to be aware of the environment and to protect it. He picks a great cast of personalities to interpret his message and it's all linked up to a great plot. Carl Hiaasen's "Tourist Season" is a good read because of this mixed together.
