Best book I have ever listened to!!!!! The raeder changes his voise cor different characters😁😁😁😁🙌🙌😎
I love the great energetic characters. I especially like Tuna who I can definitely relate to. Though neither of my parents are abusive, I relate to her personality wise. I believe that Van Der Beek (sorry, not sure if I spelled the last name right) read the story a perfectly fine tempo and had nice accents and voices.
The story became too watered down to hold my interest. Still funny though. The other reviews are accurate and helpful.
It's up there. I like listening to something fairly light so I can also keep my focus on the road, and this book fit the bill.
Probably Mickey was my favorite, but all the characters are so much fun.
It's not that type of book.
Carl Hiaasen is a brilliant, funny, author and I love his stories. James Van Der Beek leaves much to be desired as a narrator. His flat tone made an exciting book dull.
Wahoo, of course. Great kid. I wish there were more like him.
No. Not at this time.
Wait anxiously for the next Carl Hiaasen book.
There are many problems with the narration. The words in several places are changed from the text (eg: Van Der Beek refers to the Everglades as a sea, but the text says water.) Hiaasen knows the Everglades are freshwater, but apparently Van Der Beek doesn't. I found Van Der Beek's performance flat and at times difficult to follow the flow of the action. His switching in and out of the "aussie" accent for Derek Badger was annoying, especially since the text states WHERE and WHEN he dropped the accent. I give Van Der Beek a C+ on this one.
