It's a quick, fun suspense story that's funny without being hilarious and not suspenseful enough to get your heart racing. It's pretty typical Hiaasen -- a large cast of characters and absurd situations and definitely an enjoyable read, but the thing...more

There's a lot to like in this story, and I was most especially impressed by the setting and the pacing of the mystery, both of which are well done. On the other hand, the whodunnit is not especially surprising and, more frustratingly, the romance fel...more

So, okay, I'm sucked in. This is a really fun series, and this third book had a lot more emotional resonance than the previous two.

I liked this book a great deal. I like Tina Fey's sense of humor, I thought the early chapters about her theater camp experience were really funny, and I appreciated her perspective on a lot of things. But there's not a lot to this book that drives i...more

This book was a pleasant surprise. I bought it because I love Sarah Vowell's work, but I wasn't especially interested in the topic. Luckily, it turned out to be really interesting; I knew basically nothing about Hawaii before picking up the book, but...more
