james It is very funny and pointed, as are most of Hiaasen's books. There is also an incredibly sad but beautiful passage that describes what one of the characters finds as he looks for a specific piece of roadkill that has stayed with me 10 years after reading it.
Bernie MacKinnon Virtually every chapter in "Sick Puppy" has a belly laugh. Carl Hiaasen's evisceration of Florida culture continues, to our collective benefit. When it comes to channeling our malice toward certain figures--developers, lobbyists, corrupt politicians--no one does it better, and no one conjures up more poetic and imaginative justice for them. This one concerns a narcissistic lobbyist who is unlucky enough to be caught littering by a trust-fund hippy environmentalist, who then targets him for maximum humiliation. Hilarity and suspense ensue. Apart from said trust-fund hippy, the character of the ex-Florida governor-turned-survivalist Clinton Tyree--a aggrieved idealist on a mission--is worth a movie all on his own.
Psruiz Good, absolutely. If you care for animals of all kinds and sizes. Besides is fun to read.
