Fantastic gift.

My dad is a huge Jimmy Buffet fan. To give him this autographed copy was the best birthday idea I've ever had. He was incredibly moved and extremely excited.

A Little Campy But Grows On You

by JHenry on Jan 10, 2008

I am a parrothead, so I was excited when this came out. Much like when I first read Steve Martin, I wanted to like the books because I thought it was great the artist was branching out and I was intrigued to see how it went. And in both cases I was impressed, although more so with Martin, to be totally honest. Where Martin can be a little aloof and removed -- if not downright strange-- though, Buffett just tells you a story. Openly and honestly with no apologies or extended explanations. As we know from his music, he's good at that. The characters are a little cliche, yet developed and the plot is not predictable, so if you think somewhat contemporary movie matinee --sort of like Indiana Jones or Star Wars-- and you like the southern, downhome style of Jimmy's persona with a nod to his unrefutable worldliness, you'll like this. I had a little trouble getting started, but once I did, I found myself hoping for a sequel, because, much like the concerts, I was sorry to have to leave the world created by "Mr. Buffet.". There were some very strong male and female characters, plenty of flying, Florida and island insights and some nostalgia for the 30's and 40's, plus some environmental overtones. All in all an entertaining time.
