Publisher's Summary

Praising Tim Dorsey’s tongue-in-cheek humor, the Miami Herald wrote, “Nobody, but nobody, writes like this guy.” Here Florida politics take the main stage in a rollicking satire that proves Dorsey’s at the top of his game. When a traumatic experience forever changes Florida gubernatorial race candidate Marlon Conrad’s life, he hits the road in a Winnebago to find the “real” Florida. But his odyssey is plagued with would-be assassins and cutthroat journalists.

It's Funny 'Cause It's Pretty Much True!

This is possibly the most hilarious book I have ever read! I laughed so hard and so often that I was afraid the neighbors would call the guys with the butterfly nets.

It gets right into the heart of the political system (specifically Florida politics, but these days we can all relate.) It shines a bright light on all the dirty, hidden political tricks that we know are happening, but can't do anything about. If you've ever wanted to get a politician, lobbyist, news anchor, or rich person by the throat and shake them until their teeth rattle, you will love this book.

While it's basically shooting at politics, it also takes pot shots at a lot of other pet peeves we all have. For example, there is a scene with a guy trying to make an important phone call and getting stuck in the phone menu nightmare that is purely classic! I had to keep rewinding because I laughed so hard I would miss stuff.

If laughter is the best medicine, this should cure anything that ails you. This book, while part of a series, could be read without reading the others first, although some minor things will make more sense if you have.

Politics at its "best"-funny and intriguing

Would you listen to Orange Crush again? Why?

There are some amazing twists that come together all through out the novel that makes me think I may have missed a few really funny ones. Very entertaining!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Orange Crush?

When Marlin's fiance decides to tell him the engagement is off because she has found someone see who appreciates her puppets. Since its his press secretary, they will be forever entwined anyway!

What about George Wilson???s performance did you like?

His voice and timing are extraordinary!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

almost

Dorsey has done it again.

Anarchic fun, not for the prudish or faint hearted. I recommend listening to the series. It does not matter which order, they are individual stories.

I want to go to Florida with Serge as my guide.
