Publisher's Summary

Praising Tim Dorsey’s tongue-in-cheek humor, the Miami Herald wrote, “Nobody, but nobody, writes like this guy.” Here Florida politics take the main stage in a rollicking satire that proves Dorsey’s at the top of his game. When a traumatic experience forever changes Florida gubernatorial race candidate Marlon Conrad’s life, he hits the road in a Winnebago to find the “real” Florida. But his odyssey is plagued with would-be assassins and cutthroat journalists.

    Story
    "Serge rides again!"
    Where does Orange Crush rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Have to say this ranks right up there.....wildly humorous, in a dark kind of way. But always politically on point. In the vein of Carl Hiaasen, too!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Following Serge, of course.


    Have you listened to any of George Wilson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr Wilson's talent is amazing, makes you want to search out all his work, and listen!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    That's a tough one, not sure....but it would be a great movie!


    Any additional comments?

    Hooked on this series of books....for sure

    "not my favorite.....waited for Serge"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The. commentary on politics should be read alound before every session


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    HoHum!d


    Any additional comments?

    I will still look forward to another adventure....but I will first be certain that Serge is front and center

    Story
    "Very funny - for a while."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Great sense of humor, but the jokes got old after a while. I hope the author knows that rich and ruthless Democrats exist in this world, but evidently only Republicans exhibit those qualities in this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tim Dorsey again?

    Not sure. I like his style but about half-way through I couldn't wait for the book to end so I could start something else. (Vision impaired, so it's only audiobooks for me) The reader was excellent.

    Story
    "Funniest one yet"
    What made the experience of listening to Orange Crush the most enjoyable?

    Of the first three, this one struck me as the funniest one yet. Several times I had to stop driving and pull over because I was laughting too hard to drive. It may not strike everyone the same way, but it hit my sense of humor.


    What other book might you compare Orange Crush to and why?

    Not exactly sure why, but Christopher Moore's LAMB or FOOL are my comparison. Very off beat sense of humor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The political canditates in the RAW wrestling match and the rich bastard who becomes a professional sports team owner.


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

    Laughed hard, Dorsey has taken everyday events and showed how funny they are. And of course, there's Serge, the insane genious killer and his nonstop trivia of everything Florida.


    Any additional comments?

    Not necessary, but adds continuity to start the "Serge A Storms" series of books in the order they were written, This is # 3

    Story
    "Made me laugh out loud and kept me laughing."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended it to several of my friends. It's hysterically funny and fun. Florida politics have never had a magnifying glass like this one. I have also had to warn some of them that they can't have the kids in the car and some parts are going to embarrass them if someone else hears them listening without context.


    What other book might you compare Orange Crush to and why?

    Just about every Tim Dorsey book is great. I have read the entire series and loved it. I look forward to being in florida and looking for some of his landmarks. I guess I would go for Cadillac Ranch or Triggerfish Twist next. Start near the beginning of the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I guess it would have to be the Rolling Stones body guards.


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

    Laugh Laugh Laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it and enjoy. If your not laughing every minute wait 2 minutes and you will again.

    What did you love best about Orange Crush?

    I'm a big fan of Serge and this episode doesn't let you down, especially in an election year. One of Tim Dorsey's best!
