Enjoy Hiaasen's humor

by Ceinwein on Jul 10, 2008

Carl Hiaasen uses his novels to make political statements. In this book, the topic is preservation of Florida?s undeveloped lands. The main character, Twilly Spree, has become a crusader against those who would destroy the natural landscape for profit. Corrupt politicians and devious lobbyists get their ?just desserts? in a sometimes long-winded, round-about attempt to ?re-educate? the misguided developers. If you enjoy Hiaasen?s quirky sense of humor you will find this book fun to read.


Dark Comedy About Protecting the Environment

by Paul on Apr 10, 2007

This is a great book that I bought a few years ago by recommendation of the BOMC (but then, what book DON'T they recommend?!). It sounded like it would be fun to read - and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. The story involves a guy, a girl, a dog and some really oblivious litter bugs. The dog may be the most sane of the lot. I recently re-read the book after recommending it to a friend, and found that I enjoyed the second read as much as the first. Very dark, with very adult humor, but a great book with no deep meaning, just a lot of laughs at the outrageousness of extreme human behavior.
