I am a big fan of Carl Hiaasen books, particularly when delivered in audio form, but this one was just okay. I don't know if he intended the book to be kid-friendly when writing it, but the topic, writing style's complexity and humor were very 'young adult'. As he usually has a darker undertone to his humor and will write on rated R topics with humor, I was a bit surprised by how tame this one really was.
I would recommend reading Carl Hiaasen and would recommend this as a kid-friendly audiobook for the whole family to enjoy, but would not recommend it as one of Carl's typical dark comedies.
