©1991 Carl Hiaasen; (P)1992 Recorded Books
YES! it was funny and quirky while it highlighted the overdevelopment that took place in Florida. It was a great story.. I felt as if I were watching the action close up.
One of the most memorable moments took place in the whale pool. I can't say any more without ruining the story.
I was floored by George Wilson's ablity to protray each character so skillfully; it was as if there was an entire cast of performers. He made the story come alive with all of Hiaasen's wacky characters and hilarious action.
Yes, If I had the time I would have loved to have listened to it in one sitting.
Listening to Geroge Wilson bring the characters to life was great fun.
The plot seemed fragmented as compared to past Hiaasen novels I have read
I did not finish it
Maybe better voice changes as characters change could make it easier to follow
disappointed in story line. as audible I found more difficult to follow.
I may try the paperback if I can find it CHEAP!
Absolutely, 100% yes. I've listened to a majority of Carl Hiassens books and I always enjoy them, this book is no exception.
Skink. He has a part in a lot of Hiassens books. He is tough, smart, funny, and way out there.
I can't say how much I love Carl Hiassens books.
I would not listen to Native Tongue again, it's not the sort of book that has twists and turn of a mystery novel.
It reminded me of the Fletch franchise of movies, except he is a disgraced reporter.
Another complex plot with twists and turns, peopled by oddball characters and loaded with off-the-wall humor, all set in the ever-present effort to save the Florida everglades. Fun and funky.
This author was highly recommended. Although the story is interesting, the narration really brings it down. Although the narrator isn't really reading monotone, it really comes across as monotone and dull.
No, not really. It is a well developed story, but probably better read than listened to.
Not sure....I have a number of favorite narrators, but drawing a blank right now on the names. Just remember Stephen Rudnicki, but have a couple others that are great.
I cannot imagine anyone being able to get thru this book. . .most irritating. . .
at this point, I do not know
always excellent narrater
I couldn't find even 1 character with redeeming qualities
Loved all Carl Hiaasen's earlier books, so I do not understand why I was totally unable to get into this one. So disappointing...Mac
This book does not disappoint the reader in any way. Carl Hiaasen outdoes himself in prose and wit; the laughs-out-loud and shocked gasps available to the audio book reader are true treasures! The characters are well-rounded and we glimpse them as we look into the crowds around us. Falling in love with his writing is easy. Easier still is seeing how right he is about the destruction of wildlife and the environment by big money. Write on, Carl!
Too long of gaps, pauses, breaks. Narrator has good acting skills for voices but leaves way to much empy air between breaks. He also has a bit of an audio intake, or his breath is very noticeable.
