Publisher's Summary

Best-selling writer Jimmy Buffett weaves an irresistible new tale - filled with colorful characters, wry humor, and the pursuit of a very clever pig.

When Southern belle Ellie McBride moves her twins from Vertigo, Tennessee, to New York City, they wouldn't dream of leaving behind the family pig, Rumpy. But the posh hotel where Ellie has found work (and living space) has "No Pets" writ large on its portal. So hiding Rumpy from the hotel staff - especially the ultra-carnivorous hotel chef, who would like nothing better than to transform their pet into pork roast - becomes imperative.

Illustrations by Helen Bransford.

    "You don't like it? Swine Not?"

    Admittedly this is an exercise in literary style for Mr. Buffet it is style funny and fun. How can you seriously expect a great literary work from the man that brought you Barefoot Children and The Night I Painted the Sky? This was a relaxing read on an airplane and it’s going be a relaxing listen at the office. I don’t want great works of dramatic prose like Steinbeck or Hemmingway when I download Buffet, I want Margaritaville. He delivers at a level for Children and adults :P

    "Pass on this book"

    Pass on this latest entry from a very gifted writer. However, this would probably be a good read for anyone 12 years and younger.

    "Not soo much"

    I love Jimmy buffet. I liked most of his books - audio and otherwise. This one is ridiculous. Might be good for kids - not really sure.

    Story
    "Cute story, good for teens and pre teens"
    If you could sum up Swine Not? in three words, what would they be?

    I buy everything that Jimmy writes but this is a huge departure from his other fiction. As he calles it Boats, Beaches, Bars and Ballads. Swinenot is a fantasy, featuring a pot bellied pig that is smarter than most people. That being said, its a cute read and would be fun for pre-teen boys or girls.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The narrator is animated and engaging. The story line just gets a little too fansastic.


    Have you listened to any of L. J. Ganser and Jimmy Buffett ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have. A Salty Piece of Land. Much different. Love Jimmys books.


    Who was the most memorable character of Swine Not? and why?

    Barley and also Rumpy

    "Disappointed"

    I'm a big fan of Jimmy Buffet, both his writings and music, but this was a disappointment. It wasn't interesting enough for me to finish listening. Typically I'll continue no matter what, just to get my "money's worth", but not in this case.
