This book was interesting to follow at first but couldn't keep my interest. I couldn't finish it. It got me through an airline flight but I replaced it as soon as the opportunity presented itself.
A humorious selection is unusual for me--but I had so much fun with this book. The cliche's, the fun they had messing with the bad buy, the people who "grew" in the book were actually touching. Sure didn't bore me--I just loved every moment of it. Wonderful, fun writing, fastastic narration. I'd been feeling a little low, and I gotta say this sure helped me thru. I'll be watching for more books by this author, esp. when read by Stephen Hoye.
After reading the summary of the book, I was very interested in the plot. However, when I began to listen to the story, the language was so bad and the explicit sexual references caused me to turn it off and delete it from my player. Too bad. The story line had great potential.
I cannot believe how well Hiaason does what he does. There is no one better at pulling off a well crafted story, and Skinny Dip is one such creation. The guy is amazing (and pretty damn funny)!
Echo the comments of other reviewers. Wld rate as consistently amusing but not killer funny. Good story with some good twists and charming moments. The real gem in this offering is the reader who is outstanding! Definitely one of the best ever. Really makes the story come to life with an incredible array of completely distinct characters -- different accents, ages, genders, personalities.
An excellent read. If you enjoy quirky, out of the ordinary stories, with strange, yet throughly believable culprits, this one's for you!!
I especially liked "Tool", a giant, hirsute sociopath, who steals fentanyl patches off of people in nursing homes because he's got a bullet lodged "up the crack of my ass". He actually becomes one of the characters who has the most conscience and common sense of them all......
Well worth the credit!!
