Every now and then Hiaasen writes a book that feels like a breath of fresh air, meaning he kept his entertaining style intact but focused on a theme other than Florida/Nature/Political corruption. Or at least every now and then one (or multiple) of those themes is at least muted enough where you can kid yourself that you are reading something different.

This is not one of those books.

It is enjoyable, but for someone who has read a couple of Hiaasen books, look elsewhere if you are looking for any diversity.

What can I say? It's Hiaasen. I know the books are all pretty much the same, and they aren't high literature or anything. But what they ARE is highly entertaining. I spent a lot of time in Florida as a child/young adult and I have met the real world echos of many of his characters.

This book read like something Janet Evonivich would write if she posessed a higher degree.
