I'm Glad my nephew gave me a Hoot!

My 12 year old nephew read the novel first and he thoroughly enjoyed the novel. Then he asked me to read it. I have to say at first I was skeptical, but I value Carl Hiaasen commitment to the environmental efforts in Florida. Development along our coastal shores has often been allowed to flourish without restraints, allowing degradation of our already fragile ecology.

Hiaasen in his own small way is trying to preserve that wonderful state of Florida for future generations of people and of course the owl. So, to honor my nephew's request and Hiaasen's nature role, I read it over the course of the next two days.

Overall, I thought the novel was an excellent read, of course not on an adult level but it still kept my interest as I followed Roy, the boy from Montana as he discovers the vast beauty of Florida and also the invasion of those nasty developers. No need at this point to recap the story again. It's a super book for adults and young adults and worthy of your attention.
