Near the top for laughing out loud while listening.
There was something surprising and/or humorous around every corner.
Timing and delivery. I loved his work and hope he reads another one! For crying out loud he's a comedian.
A hilarious distillation of the absurd and preposterous in south Florida.
I think there must be some "sour grape" consumption by many of the other reviewers. The story is a scream and the narrator does a great job.
Great, classic Carl Hiassen plot, but the pernunciation of some South Florida specific words was off ( for example, filets, conch, Brickell, flan, etc). Still, that was one bad monkey!
I am not sure. I have had a very a hard time getting interested in the plot of this book. I love Carl Hiaasen books, but this one did not hold my interest. I didn't finish it.
I did not really like this narrator's voice. He had the somewhat light, comic tone that Hiassen novels should have, but I didn't love his voice.
I'm really not sure I should review a book I didn't finish listening to but it really seemed too tedious for words. The last straw was the narration in a faux Chicago mobster accent.
Do wish I had not ever started it on a two hour drive...
Had its moments and kept me amused while commuting. One character is suppose to be a terrible writer (which he is) but his terrible writing is not too far removed from Hiaasen's at times.
