    Wahoo Cray lives in a zoo. His father is an animal wrangler, so he's grown up with all manner of gators, snakes, parrots, rats, monkeys, snappers, and more in his backyard. The critters he can handle. His father is the unpredictable one.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing. This was poorly written and poorly read.

    Hiaassen first books were great but these last two have been much less than bad. Stupid story line, dumb plot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Hiaasen again?

    I've read, listened to every one of his books but this will be the last.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Chomp?

    Cut from npage one on.


    Any additional comments?

    Hiaassen has quit writing but continues to produce books.

    Hollywood stylist to the stars, Zoey Witherspoon, is a wanna-be Stephanie Plum, and to that end, she's now moonlighting as a badge-toting Private Investigator. But on her way to style one of her infamously diva-esque clients, she discovers her first dead guy in the Range Rover parked next to her. And this isn't just any dead guy...It's one with a Russian mob connection, and the one hired by her former client, Ponzi-scheming King Bernard McCall, to kill her.

    What disappointed you about Thug Guard?

    a real piece of @#$!! waste money and time listening. The story made no sense! It ended with out a finish.

    Author DD Scott must have paid to have this published. I cannot understand how this trash was actually made it to print.


    Has Thug Guard turned you off from other books in this genre?

    YES!!!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It was OK


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger because I wasted the money for the purchase. Disappointment because the description offered much more than the book could deliver


    Any additional comments?

    AVOID ALL WORKS BY DD SCOTT. Calling Scott and author is like calling me a brain surgeon.

    I could do the operation but the patient would not live.
