Publisher's Summary

Georgia Author of the Year Award winner Man Martin delivers a riotous, briskly paced work that Atlanta Magazine honored as a Top Ten Pick.

Erstwhile hot-dog-restaurant manager Adam Newman has a lot on his plate - and usually more than a bit in his drinking glass. With an ex-wife to win back, a fiancée to lose, a son to mentor, and a load of missing diamonds to locate, Adam may have finally bitten off more than he can chew.

Critic Reviews

“A full-bore slapstick marathon in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen.” (Publishers Weekly)

Loved this book, great characters, story & plot

Where does Paradise Dogs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 10 to 15, will listen to it again sooner than later (least by the end of the month), all the characters are well devoloped (maybe not Keen for some reason) but in the end the end you will smile for every single one of them, except for maybe Keen?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Paradise Dogs?

Mr Walt and his IMAGENGINEERING, a new word in my lexicon, this word should be in Websters (maybe it is?). Wedding episode is also very good, keys under the flower pot discovery (huh?) they just go on and on.

Which character – as performed by David Aaron Baker – was your favorite?

Baker can do anyone, near as I can tell. His repetoire is amazing (my favorite narrator). Since Adam was the main character I guess he was my favorite but all characters were done perfectly by Baker (as usual).

If you could take any character from Paradise Dogs out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Adam of course, lets eat a hot dog. My way -- boiled, onions, relish, hot peppers, kraut, mustard w/ french fries (and catsup only on the fries) and then he can treat me to a Paradise Dog (I love chili dogs too).

Any additional comments?

Buy this book, listen and be happy at the end. Money can't buy happiness, but doing good things for other people can make you happy.
