If its your first go at Carl Hiaasen, try something else. Striptease or Skinny Dip, maybe.
His genius is making flawed characters lovable, so you end up rooting for them all the way.
There's none of that here. No redemption for the bumbling villain. Hero and heroine are unlovable. No real social comment. Racist bad guys and scamming zealots: too easy. I just didn't enjoy it.
He's one of my favorite audiobook pleasures, but Hiaasen missed the mark with this one.

Which scene was your favorite?
When JoLayne opens the envelope with the lottery ticket in it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, this was a can't stop... one more chapter in the driveway kind of book!
Any additional comments?
A Hiaasen book is twisted humor... guaranteed
