Fans of the “Skink” series will enjoy this new adventure with Mick Stranahan. He’s not as outright crazy as Skink (who is crazier than a giant, one eyed former governor who lives in the swamps) but he’s a unique none the less. The story follows a similar patter as his other books (bad guy gets a crazy idea with other crazy bad guys and hilarity ensues), but it’s still a lot of fun. Well written as always I really enjoyed “Skin Tight” its classic Hiaasen set in warm and sunny south Florida.
Mr. Wilson does a good job with the narration in both his characters and timing. It's a older recording so there is some white noise in the background but I didn't find it too distracting.
Imagery. Just the imagery that accompanies reading (or listening to) books. The characters are fabulous. I totally liked the fact that he references characters from other books.
George Wilson, as usual, delivered a wonderful performance. I have only heard Mr. Wilson under CH books and he has read them in the same dry, sarcastic, matter-of-fact manner that is perfect for the author's tone.
Fabulous narrator. Hilariously over-the-top characters, zany plot, mature (hot) detective. Hiasson is king of the back story (though he may share his crown with John Irving). I did like Skinny Dip better, though.
Typical Hiaasen with a cast of wonderful misfits, colliding through unimaginable circumstances, complete with a very thinly veiled television sleezebag named Raynaldo Flem. The humor is here, the characters are here, but there are passages that could have benefited with some editing.
I have just recently discovered this writer - WHAT??!!! Where have I been?! I'm loving his books, his somewhat . . . hmmm . .maybe . . dark humor at times. LOVE IT!!! Some of these books are from back in the 80's, some in this century and I am loving them all! Most of my credits have gone to this author recently - it's like a Hiaasen marathon for me!! I know there are people out there that will not or do not get this type of humor - but his humor is right up my alley!! I love the characters, some very strange characters, some endearing, but they are all great!! I cannot believe Quentin Tarantino or Amazon has not grabbed these and made movies and/or series!!! Even the retro ones would make great series. If you can make a great series out of Bosch - think what you could do with Hiaasen's work!!!
They keep me entertained and grinning (often laughing out loud) while I drive!!!! Thank you Hiaasen!!!
