    There is something fascinating or funny or truly bizarre on every page of this true tale of floral obsession: the story of how the head of a famous Seminole chief came to be displayed in the front window of a local pharmacy; or how 700 iguanas were smuggled into Florida; or the case of the only known extraterrestrial plant crime.

    Robert says: "Orchids are just the vehicle."

    Story
    What did you love best about The Orchid Thief?

    This story is actually a true story about a person who was being prosecuted in Florida for stealing orchids from a state protected zone. But it is much more than that. The author has done her research. She tells a lot about the state, orchids in general and the love and passion that people have had for orchids throughout history. I recommend the book for people who love orchids and who would like to know a lot more about them and their history.


    What other book might you compare The Orchid Thief to and why?

    I don't really know any other book that is comparative to this one.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Meyers – was your favorite?

    The author narrates the book about her research into the person who was arrested and the circumstances and she does a great job. I liked the author.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it made me very interested as it is a subject that I have a lot of interest in.


    Any additional comments?

    It is actually very humorous though she definitely fills you in on a lot of detail about the subject the author makes it very enjoyable.
