A dark comic masterpiece - the first solo adult novel in more than a decade from the Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times best-selling author Dave Barry.
Seth Weinstein knew Tina was way out of his league in pretty much any way you could imagine, which is why it continued to astonish him that he was on the plane now for their destination wedding in Florida. The Groom Posse had already sprung an airport prank on him, and he'd survived it, and if that was the worst of it, everything should be okay. Smooth sailing from now on.
Seth has absolutely no idea what he's about to get into. In the next several hours, he and his friends will become embroiled with rioters, Russian gangsters, angry strippers, a pimp as big as the Death Star, a very desperate Haitian refugee on the run with her two children from some very bad men, and an 11-foot albino Burmese python named Blossom. And there're still two days to go before the wedding.
As it turns out, it's not smooth sailing, it's more like a trip on the Titanic. And the water below him is getting deeper every minute. By the end, amid gunfire, high-speed chases, and mayhem of the most unimaginable sort, violent men will fall, heroes will rise, and many lives will change.
Seth's, not least of all.

It is Barry - it is Florida - it is INSANE!
One of the funniest stories I have ever had the pleasure to hear! Laugh outloud-funny!
You never know what is going to happen next- and likely, you could never even guess. Certainly, there is some crudeness and a good bit of cussing (not gratuitous-it all is appropriate for the characters and to what is happening in the story), but, in typical Dave Barry style, it's all worth it! The reading is just fine. If you have heard Dave Barry speak or read his own material, it is no different. He reads matter-of-factly, letting the humor of the phrasing and the insane storyline make you laugh. The characters, their names and personalities, the situations in which they get involved and embroiled and entangled, are the usual wonderful products of Dave Barry's creative comedic mind. And, best of all, this funny and suspenseful, zany book is full of happy endings.
Dave Barry did a very good job. The storyline worked well with his rather matter-of-fact style. (The Gza? Never heard him on here.)

If you like Dave Barry, you will like this book. It is Barry - it is Florida - it is INSANE!!!!!
Dave Barry never disappoints
