Publisher's Summary

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.

What she doesn't know is that she's being followed by her Honey-obsessed former employer, Piejack. And he doesn't know he's being followed by Honey's still-smitten, former-drug-running ex-husband, Perry, and their wise-and-protective-way-beyond-his-years 12-year-old son, Fry. And when they all pull up on Dismal Key, they don't know they're intruding on Sammy Tigertail, a half white-half Seminole failed alligator wrestler, trying like hell to be a hermit despite the Florida State coed who's dying to be his hostage.

What the Critics Say

"Old fans and newcomers alike should delight in Hiaasen's 11th novel, another hilarious Florida romp [with an] engaging and diverse screwball cast...Hiaasen's humorous touches and his all-too-human characters carry the book to its satisfying close." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great book, decent audio."

    I'd already read this book (on paper), just wanted something fun to listen to; this is! I love how Hiaasen creates these characters that are completely wacko, but somehow so lovable because of their innate sense of justice & good intentions.

    The narration is decent; Curtin especially does a good job with Honey. The only thing that grated on me was that she made Sammy Tigertail (a 1/2-Seminole) sound sorta Canadian/Minnesotan/Dumb-white-person-imitating-Native-American-speaking-English. It wasn't pronounced enough to be totally offensive, but it was annoying. Having grown up near reservations in the northeastern US, I sorta get what she was going for, but really... the kid was raised off res, by his white mom, for part of his childhood. He'd probably speak like another southern Floridian.

    Overall, not bad.

    "Another Hilarious book from Carl Hiasson"

    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

    "Hiaasen's Best!"
    What made the experience of listening to Nature Girl the most enjoyable?

    This has to be my favorite Hiaasen book! Great story and the characters are fabulous. Hiaasen has a special way of bringing the crazies out in a soothing way. Becareful of the abridged version though... I accidentially purchased it and they are not returnable! We picked up the full version at the library and loved it much more than the abridged.

    "Nature Girl"

    I love everything by Carl Hiaasen and was not disappointed by Nature Girl. The thought of getting even with those annoying telemarketers made me smile all the way to work. The narrator did a great job with the voices.
