Publisher's Summary

The Road to Key West is an adventurous/humorous sojourn that cavorts its way through the 1970s Caribbean, from Key West and the Bahamas, to Cuba and Central America. In August of 1971, Kansas Stamps and Will Bell set out to become nothing more than commercial divers in the Florida Keys, but adventure, or misadventure, seems to dog them at every turn. They encounter a parade of bizarre characters, from part-time pirates and heartless larcenists, to Voodoo bokors, a wacky Jamaican soothsayer, and a handful of drug smugglers.

Adding even more flavor to this Caribbean brew is a complicated romance, a lost Spanish treasure, and an antediluvian artifact created by a distant congregation who truly understood the term, pyramid power. Pour yourself a margarita, sit back, and slide into the 70s for a while as you follow Kansas and Will through this cocktail of madcap adventures on The Road to Key West.

A lot more than I expected

Let me start by saying at first I was very unimpressed with the narration, I am sorry but it just was not my cup of tea. BUT as the book went on and the story became more engaging, It sort of grew on meme. Now I hope the second book uses the the same man to narrate. Go figure This is sort fo a coming of age story, 2 guys, Key west transplants and lots of adventures, how could it go wrong? The answer is it can't. The characters the stories the pace all were perfect. Some of it a bit unbelievable., but so much fun. The story is about 2 guys, best friends ,; Kansas Stamps and Will Bell and its begins in 1971 and its a romp through the early part of the decade. I highly recommend this book

Ending too painful to finish.

What disappointed you about The Road to Key West?

It was a pretty good listen until the author brought in dirty cops, dirty politicians, quacky bank robber and aliens. It starts off a couple kids move to the keys and has some adventure then the author just drives off the cliff. Don't get this one.

Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrator was the only really good thing about this book.

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

It was well written.
