Cheesy Burgers in Paradise
A Montana cowboy drifts around the Carribean meeting all sorts of cool people with wonderful life stories. He trips into dream job after dream job, parties with millionaires who inexplicably keep giving him things (boats, mansions, etc.) and hooks up with gorgeous, rich women who find him irresistable. For Buffett, there is no dark side to paradise--only good times and good vibrations. This theme might be entertaining in a three minute song, but it grates in a full length novel. Skip this one and read something by Hiaasen-- a writer who has a more realistic, funny and sarcastic view of "Magaritaville."
