©2004 Carl Hiaasen; (P)2004 Books on Tape, Inc.
"At this point in his career as a comic novelist, Carl Hiaasen did not need to get any better. He has long been writing smarty, fizzy Floridian escapades that amount to pure reading pleasure. But Skinny Dip, his latest, is something more: a screwball delight so full of bright, deft, beautifully honed humor that it places Mr. Hiaasen in the company of Preston Sturges, Woody Allen and S.J. Perelman....Mr. Hiaasen writes with finesse." (The New York Times)
"Hiaasen's signature mix of hilariously over-the-top villains, lovable innocents and righteous indignation at what mankind has done to his beloved Florida wilderness is all present in riotous abundance in his latest....Hiaasen's books are so enjoyable it's always a sad moment when they end." (Publishers Weekly)
"No reprobate escapes the satirical eye of Hiaasen, who writes like the love child of Hunter S. Thompson and Evelyn Waugh....Like Hiaasen's nine previous novels, this one's a corker, chock-full of belly laughs and blistering truths." (Booklist)
This book is the one to listen to if you are looking for a laugh. The story is imaginative, the situations are unique and the characters are a hoot. Truly a riotous, uproarious gem of a read!
I hardly every write reviews but this was to good not to say something. I found myself laughing and sitting on the edge of my seat. It's a great book and you won't be sorry.
I listen to my books while driving and I found that I almost had to pull over I was laughing so hard. The reader does an excellent job(many a good book has been ruined by a bad choice of reader).
Skinny Dip combines a rolicking story line with good characters and frequent humorous turns of phrase. A thoroughly entertaining accompanyment to the morning commute.
