Tim Dorsey delivers one crazy drug fueled romp through Florida. this story was insane, whitty, sharp, and morbidly creative. with wit that rivels the late great Douglas Adams Florida Roadkill tells the tale of Serge Storms the human embodiment of insanity it's self. Serge and a bizarre cast of charictors each with thier own story all up intertwined together in a mis-adventure that swindles an insurance company and causes a chain reaction of death and murder. the last man standed claims the prize. the story was humorous but slightly disjointed which sometimes caused my mind to wonder and i would have to rewind because i missed key story points. i did enjoy that the reader sounded like Walter Cronkite so the whole adventure sounded like a news report which sort of added to this crime comedy.
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.
