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.
I listen to my books while driving and I found that I almost had to pull over I was laughing so hard. The reader does an excellent job(many a good book has been ruined by a bad choice of reader).
Skinny Dip combines a rolicking story line with good characters and frequent humorous turns of phrase. A thoroughly entertaining accompanyment to the morning commute.
What started out as a seemingly engaging plot quickly faded into a formulaic and predictable story. The characters seemed like caricatures of themselves engaging in inane, dumbed-down dialog. The sub-plots were like a Hollywood B-movie with all the ingredients for a mindless afternoon matinee. The only redeeming quality was the environmental angle which was completely under developed. How the hell did this book make it on the best seller list among other works that are of much higher caliber? This is your book if you?re looking for a quick, pointless read that is not particularly funny or interesting. I?m never reading Carl Hiassen book again. It?s a tired story trying desperately to be interesting and hip. I might have enjoyed this sophomoric book in high-school. As a thirty-something, it was a waste of my time.
Could have been a good book - less dumb sex, more character development, less predictability. Only saving grace -good narration
