An eco-terrorist with a trust fund, Twilly Spree is tailing a litterbug in a purple Range Rover with plates that read COJONES.

Sane Puppy, Sick Surroundings

Since Tourist Season, Hiaasen's books have reminded me of aerobatic flying in the most satisfying way...you expect a wild ride, but like any force of nature, he manages to throw new stomach-twitching high-lows that you didn't think were waiting for you. What's rewarding in a more aching way is rediscovering that you can still share his subtext of outrage at social and political drifts that we've come to take for granted...from ravaged lands we've stolen from our children to please greedy developers to the hearts of Russian women who will not only sell their bodies for sex, but deliver them to an operating table for hilarious yet cruelly-disfiguring cosmetic surgery. It's good to read a master at the top of his game, but it's even better to heed his alerts to a culture almost lost to the creeping evil of individual self-absorption.

Not the best, but plenty good enough

As others here have written, all of Carl Hiaasen's books have certain similarities. To some this is formulaic; to others, he is continuing to give his faithful readers what they expect when they buy his books. Anyone who has read more than one CH book will know what I mean. Unfortunately, this book will not be read by those who OUGHT to be reading it: litterbugs, real estate developers, big game hunters, cigar smokers, members of the NRA - everyone whom CH, and his characters, want to teach a lesson. Those who are his fans, however, will not be disappointed. While this book is not quite up to the level of Double Whammy, it is true to the CH tradition, which puts it in my highest category - worth pre-ordering in hardcover. Which is what I will do with his next release. I only wish I could meet Skink in real life; we could use him up here in New York.

Oh, Carl, How I've Missed You!

There is nothing like a Carl Hiaasen book! I tried my best to take my time reading. I kept closing it, putting it aside, but he's like chips, no way can you eat just one! If you haven't read it what are you waiting on? If you have read this wonderful new book don't you think it deserves 10 stars! And, aren't you happy Mr. Hiaasen gave Skink a Son! I figure Twilly is as close as Skink will get. I loved McGuinn, I could just see his face racing down the hill after the rhino. And Mr. Gash. I know you're suppose to not like him, but I knew when he came on the scene something wicked was sure to happen, and it always did. Oh, but did he get what Gash deserved! The entire novel was one magnificent ride. My only complaint is now that I'm finished I need more, MORE from Mr. Hiaasen, and I need it now! Please don't make us wait too long for the next one.

Best Hiaasen Book Ever

I , as a Floridian, am a huge Hiaasen fan. I was quite disappointed by LUCKY YOU, it had none of that Hiassen flair I am used to. I bought SICK PUPPY the day it came out, and ended up staying up all night reading it for 6 hours straight. It is his best yet (even better than TOURIST SEASON and STORMY WEATHER, his best two if you ask me). It is great to have Skink and Jim Tile back, and I love ther charater of Twilly. This is a must have book for all Hiaasen fans. Allyou have to do now is buy his book on Disney and your collection is complete.........
