I love Carl Hiaasen - his books are always a great read. This was my first time listening to a Hiaasen novel - and it was one of the best listens I've had since joining audible a year ago. The narrator is excellent - very easy to understand, lots of well-done voices for the different characters, and no annoying voice/mouth quirks. I'm hoping that all the Hiaasen novels are read by this same guy!
As for this novel specifically, I thought it was one of Hiaasen's best. Fascinating, darkly hilarious, and really hard to put down. I loved all the characters, except (obviously) for the slimeball husband, and felt very invested in their fates. The ending was nicely satisfying. I see some people disliked the Viagra jokes - I didn't think they were superfluous or juvenile at all; they fit perfectly with Chaz and his personality.
Parents: Hiaasen has a children's book out, "Hoot", that my 10 year old adored and my 7 year old liked.
