I don't understand why people found this so funny. Laugh out loud? Hardly. Instead the book is dull, there is no reason to care about the pathetic characters, the narrators voices are over the top, and the book is loooong. You stop caring about the book well before the end of Part I and Part II feels like a chore. In addition the sex scenes are ridiculous and mean nothing to the plot. Trust me, don't bother.
Travis McGee grows a wicked sense of humor, loses the testosterone o.d., grows an imaginative cruel streak, and meets the 21st (or maybe even the 20th) century. I loved McGee, but this guy . . .
As a fellow Floridian, I've been reading Carl Hiaasen's novels for years and they just keep getting better and better. I can relate to the kooky characters and the humorous situations. I loved this book, but to be honest I've never read or listened to a Hiaasen that I haven't loved.
I read a review praising this author, but I really don't see it. story was very predictable despite some quirky incidents. Main characters were cliche and contradicted themselves in several places and supporting characters were not well developed. Kept hoping it would get better.
This book is the one to listen to if you are looking for a laugh. The story is imaginative, the situations are unique and the characters are a hoot. Truly a riotous, uproarious gem of a read!
I hardly every write reviews but this was to good not to say something. I found myself laughing and sitting on the edge of my seat. It's a great book and you won't be sorry.
