What a shame about the reader

The story seems to be up to Hiaasen's usual standard, but it is ruined by the really bad narration. Hiassen has had some great readers, why suddenly this guy? The reading is jerky, sing-song and the emphasis is often wrong.What a pity.

hated the reader and the performance

Would you try another book written by Carl Hiaasen or narrated by Lance Fuller?

I so hated the reader and his performance which is stilted and without emotion in the first chapter I simply couldn't get any further than the first 10 minutes. I tried more than once thinking it might be my mood but I couldn't do it! Try listening before you buy. Shame as I usually like Carl Hiaasen for his mad humour.

Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Hiaasen again?

Maybe if by a different reader or I'll download to my Kindle and try on that.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lance Fuller’s performances?

NO

Ruined by Narration

I love Hiaasen, his books are great, but listening to this (rather than reading it) is unspeakably bad. Men, women, old, young, every line is read in exactly the same deadpan voice. Given Hiaasen's novels are all about conversation, this makes the book almost impossible to follow. The stupid thing is his other novels have great narrators. Buy the physical book instead, as its almost certainly excellent when read any way other than by this narrator.

And if you really need it read to you, get Stephen Hawking to do it as he would do a better job.

I'd give it no stars if I could.
