After watching Stoat blithely dump a trail of fast-food litter out the window, Twilly decides to teach him a lesson. Thus, Stoat's prized Range Rover becomes home to a horde of hungry dung beetles. Which could have been the end to it had Twilly not discovered that Stoat is one of Florida's cockiest and most powerful political fixers, whose latest project is the "malling" of a pristine Gulf Coast island. Now the real Hiaasen-variety fun begins....
Dognapping eco-terrorists, bogus big-time hunters, a Republicans-only hooker, an infamous ex-governor who's gone back to nature, thousands of singing toads and a Labrador retriever greater than the sum of his Labrador parts - these are only some of the denizens of Carl Hiaasen's outrageously funny new novel.
Brilliantly twisted entertainment wrapped around a powerful ecological plea, Sick Puppy gleefully lives up to its title and gives us Hiaasen at his riotous and muckraking best.

Not Hiaasen's Best, But Worth A Listen
Any additional comments?
I love Carl Hiaasen. His novel Nature Girl is my favorite book and I've read several of his others that were all amazing. This book however left me wanting. I never felt a real connection to the characters, and although I love a character who's kind of crazy, there were no less than 3 completely certifiable men in the book and it felt like loon overload. The "villians" of the book were interesting and fun to watch crash and burn, and the premise was good. Still, not my favorite of his.
As for the narration, I've listened to one or two of his narrations before and I'm not really a fan. It's a little too droll for me and his voices for two of the guys was very similar so when they were having a conversation I couldn't tell sometimes which one was talking. His female voices aren't very convincing, but he has kind of a gruff voice so I can see why.
Overall, I'm glad I read it, but I won't again.
