I'd already read this book (on paper), just wanted something fun to listen to; this is! I love how Hiaasen creates these characters that are completely wacko, but somehow so lovable because of their innate sense of justice & good intentions.
The narration is decent; Curtin especially does a good job with Honey. The only thing that grated on me was that she made Sammy Tigertail (a 1/2-Seminole) sound sorta Canadian/Minnesotan/Dumb-white-person-imitating-Native-American-speaking-English. It wasn't pronounced enough to be totally offensive, but it was annoying. Having grown up near reservations in the northeastern US, I sorta get what she was going for, but really... the kid was raised off res, by his white mom, for part of his childhood. He'd probably speak like another southern Floridian.
Overall, not bad.

Loved Double Whammy. though Nature Girl is funny and entertaining, Jane Curtain does a superb job narrating nature girl. Enjoyable ad funny. But far from being one of my favorites from Hiasson
