    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    What disappointed you about Bad Monkey?

    Bad Monkey suffers so severely due to bad narration that I honestly can't tell if Hiaasen is off his game or not. I've listened to a lot of audio books and Arte Johnson's reading of this book is probably the worst I've ever heard.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Arte Johnson’s performances?

    Never, never, never. He's awful.

  • 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

    Story

    In this riveting, accessible work of science, Charles Mann takes us on an enthralling journey of scientific exploration. We learn that the Indian development of modern corn was one of the most complex feats of genetic engineering ever performed. That the Great Plains are a third smaller today than they were in 1700 because the Indians who maintained them by burning died. And that the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Fascinating review of the cultures in America before Columbus. We are still being taught out if date information. This book tells a story while reviewing new information showing how advanced these cultures were in 1491.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Charles C. Mann? Why or why not?

    Yes. I will be reading 1493.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's not what you learned in school
