This is a different type of book for me and I was delighted. I heard a brief excerpt on Book Radio and had to have this title. All of us in audio book land know that the reader can make or break a book. George Guidall is great! I would listen to this one again. Also have a new author on my "favorites" list.
I usually will make myself compete any book that I purchase in hopes that if nothing else, it will improve my literary fund of knowledge. This is the first book that I have ever returned. It was hopelessly wordy and seemed to be headed for some dark inexorable ending. I wish that I had read more of the reviews.
I can't help myself. I love the screwball characters and how poetic justice seems to prevail. Since I am a native, and I lived through Hurricane Andrew I actually found some of the sub plots completely believable. The sarcasm and unexpected dialogue is fantastic and Skink is a mesmerizing character to say the least. I am hooked! Don't let the "save the planet" theme that permeates the book deter you. Read it and laugh out loud! George Wilson is a fantastic reader and he slips effortlessly and flawlessly between characters.
Two of the most juvenile, annoying characters and the readers are just as bad. I am shocked at the "great reviews". It is almost as bad as 50 shades of you know what.
