Anyone who enjoys those tabloids with articles about everything. Like would you believe!
It was just about violence in Fla. and after 4 chapters there was no story line.
Should have been published as a Fla. tabloid.
Less violence. Violence is not comic.
All the violence.
He was forced to read drivel.
All of it.
I really hated this book. I stopped reading it twice. I gave it a third try and got a lot farther and I still hate it. I may have paid for it, but by g^d I don't have to dirty myself listening.
It was a terrible story that could have been so good. I was expecting an Elmore Leonard type tale but this was very awkwardly told and just as poorly read.
It was more editing than just George Wilson's performance. The performance didn't flow, it seemed like he was reading half a sentence and then restarting the conversation for the other half of the sentence. Really hard to get into.
I've listened to or read all of Serge's adventures and I love them. I'm on my second round of rereading them. Dorsey's sense of humor fits mine exactly. I recommend these to anyone who is tired of the same old story where the usual happens and the reader already knows how the book will end. It entertains me all through the story, not just at the final page where one figures out who the killer is. And isn't the journey better than the destination?
SPOILER ALERT: I can't believe Mr. Dorsey would have an important character such as Coleman killed in the first book. I hope it's all a tragic mistake and maybe it wasn't Coleman in the room at the Pelican Inn.
Not anyone I know
Develop some kind of plot instead of a shotgun approach to attempt a story
He did a good job
I was looking forward to listening to another Florida author
Apparently, neither the narrator nor the producer have ever lived in Florida or even spent significant amounts of time in the state. The mispronunciations of many words, particularly various cities in FL is just awful.
Due to a sale, I bought Triggerfish Twist (published as book 4 although in the timeline, Triggerfish Twist happens first then Florida Roadkill). There are some disconnects in the characters meeting in Roadkill even though they knew each other in Triggerfish.
I love how the author pokes fun at a business segment in each of these two book. This one is Insurance, Triggerfish it's Management Consulting. The tongue in cheek absurdity of these businesses left me laughing out loud and re-winding to enjoy the skew how the stories of corruptions, which are all too believable.
Like an episode of Seinfeld, Tim Dorsey's books weave a tapestry strand by strand until it all comes together. He introduces characters with funny episodes that seem to be stand alone segments and slowly start to integrate the characters into a larger story.
The story follows Serge and Coleman as the track down insurance money from a insurance claim (on a sleazy dentist that they have dismembered).
Serge, the protagonist(?), seems to have evolved between the two stories. In both books, Serge murders truly reprehensible people. The difference is that he is a petty thief that kills people that offend his moral code in Triggerfish. Here he kills for the money. This makes Serge less likeable character.
George K. Wilson does a great job with voices ranges from stoner Coleman to coke fueled Sharon.
I recommend this book, but it is not as enjoyable as Triggerfish Twist.
