it was amazing

geez, I've forgotten how much fun it is to read these zippy little Florida detective/gangster novels! Hiaasen is in a similar vein as Elmore Leonard, whom I adore for his snappy dialog and fabulous florida gangsters. you know, I visited the wikiwachi mermaid show in florida after discovering much to my surprise that Elmore Leonard did not in fact invent this crazy underwater theater with the actors sipping on oxygen thru tubes and the audience behind the glass like a big old aquarium! anyway, Hiaasen is fun and unputdownable--the perfect kind of read when you're tagging along on a pilgrimage to Mt Carmel. Oh, don't even ASK!! :-)

p.s. wikiwachi has since closed down. it is a tragic of epic proportions. like, a tragedy the size of a bloated alligator floating through a hole in your underwater ballet's net.
