    Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Florida bullies are pretty much like bullies everywhere. But Roy finds himself oddly indebted to the hulking Dana Matherson. If Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is the first interesting thing Roy's seen in Florida.

    I prefer George Wilson's narration. Entertaining, great moral lesson, but I did'nt enjoy it as much as most of his other books. But give a shot anyway. It's always worth it

    Honey Santana, impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar, self-proclaimed "queen of lost causes", has a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales calls. She's taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie, into the wilderness of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in civility.

    Loved Double Whammy. though Nature Girl is funny and entertaining, Jane Curtain does a superb job narrating nature girl. Enjoyable ad funny. But far from being one of my favorites from Hiasson

    Grange, Florida, is famous for its miracles - the weeping fiberglass Madonna, the Road-Stain Jesus, the stigmata man. And now it has JoLayne Lucks, unlikely winner of the state lottery. Unfortunately, JoLayne's winning ticket isn't the only one. The other belongs to Bodean Gazzer and his raunchy sidekick, Chub, who believe they're entitled to the whole $28 million jackpot. And they need it quickly, to start their own underground militia before NATO troops invade America. But JoLayne Lucks has her own plans for the Lotto money - an Eden-like forest in Grange must be saved from strip-malling.

    Carl Hiasson is by far my favorite audiobook author. Audiobboks are abit differenr from reading anovel. I read about 3 books a week. I listen to my audiobooks when I walk my dogs everyday and when I houseclean, run errands etc. Audiobooks demand attention. You need to pay attention otherwise you can drift from any story easily. Don't do it with a Hiasson book or yoy'll be missing a truly great story. You must try them all. Very entertaining and laugh out loud books

    Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.

    Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards.

    Love Carl Hiasson audiobooks. I've read others, but carl hiasson's are the most enjoyable. Great storyline, hilarious, suspensful. I think Mr. Hiasson has a keen sense on human nature.
    A very keen mind indeed. Very very enjoyable

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    The Help is one of the first audio books I listened to. It's also still the best one of all. I love that there are 3 narrators. I could listen to The Help over and over again

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

    What a hilarious book. I really enjoy Carl Hiasson's books. They are always entertaining and always funny. This was my 5th book by this author and my 4th in Audio.. I'm working my way through all of Carl Hiasson's books. They are very entertaining, funny, and just a little disturbing. Everything you want in a book and more.
