Flush | [Carl Hiaasen]

Flush

You know it's going to be a rough summer when you spend Father's Day visiting your dad in the local lockup.Noah's dad is sure that the owner of the Coral Queen casino boat is flushing raw sewage into the harbor, which has made taking a dip at the local beach like swimming in a toilet. He can't prove it though, and so he decides that sinking the boat will make an effective statement. Right. The boat is pumped out and back in business within days and Noah's dad is stuck in the clink.

Publisher's Summary

You know it's going to be a rough summer when you spend Father's Day visiting your dad in the local lockup.Noah's dad is sure that the owner of the Coral Queen casino boat is flushing raw sewage into the harbor, which has made taking a dip at the local beach like swimming in a toilet. He can't prove it though, and so he decides that sinking the boat will make an effective statement. Right. The boat is pumped out and back in business within days and Noah's dad is stuck in the clink.

Now Noah is determined to succeed where his dad failed. He will prove that the Coral Queen is dumping illegally...somehow. His allies may not add up to much: his sister Abbey, an unreformed childhood biter; Lice Peeking, a greedy sot with poor hygiene; Shelly, a bartender and a woman scorned; and a mysterious pirate, but Noah's got a plan to flush this crook out into the open. A plan that should sink the crooked little casino, once and for all.

What the Critics Say

"...Hiaasen still succeeds at relating an entertaining story while getting across a serious message about conservation and the results of just plain greed." (Booklist)

    Story
    "Good Reader, audio is frustrating."
    Any additional comments?

    I generally do not listen to an entire book straight through, so I tend to want to stop at the end of a chapter. My problem with this audio is that there's not a good way to access the spot where I left off--especially from another device. I tried accessing the chapter by the links, but when clicking on chapter 2, I was taken to Chapter 6. If this issue was resolved, I would thoroughly enjoy and recommend this book.

    "POOR PERFORMANCE"
    What disappointed you about Flush?

    READING WAS BAD
    STORY WAS WORSER


    What could Carl Hiaasen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    BE MORE ORIGINAL AND NOT KEEP DIGGING INTO WORN OUT REPEATED STORY

    HE IS SO GOOD , BUT IN THIS BOOK HE IS SOOO BAD!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Welch?

    I DO NOT KNOW


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NOT REALLY

    "Fun story"
    What does Michael Welch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really liked listening to Michael Welch read this story. He did a great job. I even listened to it three times!!


    Any additional comments?

    I took the book with on an eight hour drive. I have made the trip a number of times before, but it seemed to go much faster when there is a good book to listen to.

    "This family loves it"

    My 9 yo daughter listens to this over and over; more than any other audiobook. I had a drive with my 12 yo son so thought we'd give it a try and the time flew by. Fun story with vivid characters and a well-read audiobook. Highly recommended!

    "Good for all ages"

    I listened to this with my two boys, ages 11 and 15, on a road trip. Perfect vacation listening. Formulaic but entertaining. Having young teens as protagonists (As with Hiassen's "Hoot" and "Scat," both of which we've also listened to on long road trips)is great for the young people in the car; Hiassen's wry humor comes through well and the stories are never maudlin or simple-minded. Plus the pro-environment theme rings a bell with the young folk.

    "Kid stuff"

    I can't imagine that this was written by the same person who wrote Skinny Dip & Tourist Season unless he wrote it when he was 12 years old.

    "Good Summer Read"

    Not mind boggling, but a fun summer read...or just right for a long drive in heavy traffic. You just need books like this sometimes. :)

    "A fun, bonding experience"

    My son and I started listening to this book as we drove in the car. We loved it so much. He couldn't wait to get into the car - he even stopped playing on his iTouch. We'll be listening to many more books together!

    "Author A-, Narrator D-"

    I've read/listened to several books by Carl Hiaasen and have enjoyed them greatly. This one? I couldn't get past the first five minutes. The narrator just turned me off completely. He sounded like somebody reading a cereal box to themselves. No enthusiasm, no energy, just a casual bored tone of voice like he had something better to do.

    By all means, read Hiaasen's work, but make sure you can handle this narrator before purchasing. I wish I had....
