So here's the deal. I love Carl Hiaasen. I like the actor, Ed Asner. But Ed Asner, though he's a wonderful actor, is not such a hotsy-totsy voice actor reading a Carl Hiassen book. He can do two voices: Lou Grant (aka Ed Asner) and something else. Any why he gave southern accents to Floridians, I haven't a clue. But it knocked my enjoyment down a notch, so that I had to add the "somewhat-disappointing", simply from the reading, not from the book itself, which was the usual Hiaasen mayhem, though more PG since it was written for the YA audience. For the book itself, a solid 4 stars. For the Ed Asner reading, only 3.

Maggie Amy, I bought my own copy of this last week with my Borders coupon and gift card. I'd be willing to lend it to you whenever you're ready to read it.

Xanthi I like this author, including his young adult books.

Barb funny, my 10 year old daughter didn't care for Ed's voice at all...

bookczuk As a voice actor, he should stick to Lou Grant. :)
