Read in September, 2007

I hadn't read any Hiaasen books recently, so I picked this one up. Several characters from his previous books appear in Nature Girl. At this point, I have read so many of his books, I can see the plot points coming a mile away. His writing has become predictable--you can tell which characters will die, which will survive but get their comeuppence, and which will be victorius. His characters have become caricatures of his commonly used stereotypes. As always, the environmental message is strong. This book feels as if he's going thru the motions now, his writing has lost it's spark. I wonder if he has software where he plugs in characters names and it spits out a book similiar to his others?

Note to self: this is the second bad book I've read in the last 3 months! Must check out others' goodreads recommendations!!
