I feel cheated on this one - and after 6 years of membership the first purchase that ever made me mad. In short, this is a Christian apologist, full of long dialogues and inner monologues trying to convince the protagonist that Jesus is the answer, and God solves problems through miracles. If you're into the LaHaye novels and other books on Christian dogma, then you'll like this book. But at the least, tell us up front what we're buying, and don't couch Christian exposition in the guise of a novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed Hiassen's first book, and as I began lisening to them in order, each subsequent one became less entertaning. In Hoot, it was difficult for me to wade through it. It seems as if the author has a strong political agenda, and while it was an interesting aside in earlier works, now that agenda has become a major plot point in his books.
While I agree with his environmental position, I'm too old to be preached to, and have to pay for that. It was much more effective when his positions were sublimated to the story. I'm moving on.
I'm sorry, but I just can't get into the story enough to even download part II. This needs to be a short story. It's an interesting situation, but the entire novel tries to parlay this one situation into a story. It doesn't work. It goes on and on about the same thing. Okay, we get the setup. Now where's the plot?
