Recommends it for: Carl Hiaasen fans
Recommended to Fran by: found it in a charity shop

Entertaining and far out like all Carl Hiaasen books are. One-eyed Governor of Florida and millionaire environmentalist Twilly Spree are in this one, as are a lot of other crazy, good or evil, absurd Hiaasen characters. Funny, but with a message; and an enjoyable, quick read.

Love Carl Hiassen, much as he probably loved the very elegant John D. MacDonald (who was . . . was he? the only mystery writer to win the Pulitzer Prize? -- well, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.)

Never read a Heissen book I could put down. Amazing characters and the story lines are brilliantly hilarious.

I found Hiaasen's protagonists engaging and the stories readable, but they haven't stuck in my mind. I re-read Skin Tight by accident, having thought I didn't the first time. I was two thirds of the way through before I realised that I had read it before after all. Okay, but not enough to go looking for more of his work.

Hiaasen's characters drive the stories. You're always watching things you know are foolish, would never happen, but you gotta love the sorry-ass maneuvers of his people.

actually only read sick puppy, but for some reason just the one is not an option... anyway had a book crush on Twilly Spree

I really want to like Carl Hiaasen, but I don't enjoy his adult books. He writes very well and he is original...just not my cup of tea, sadly.

Actually just reading "Sick Puppy" but that lone book doesn't exist on good reads apparently. So far it's just like the last Carl Hiaasen book I read. Seems funny so far.
