Would you consider the audio edition of Sick Puppy to be better than the print version?
I do enjoy listening to Carl Hiaasen novels in the car, but I'm sure I'd enjoy the printed word as well. Sick Puppy is a good one for the commuter -- not too hard to follow and plenty of good laughs.
What did you like best about this story?
Skink is always awesome. But in this case I really enjoyed Twilley Spree's antics.
Have you listened to any of George Newbern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, Seabiscuit: An American Legend. Both books were well-read.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Well, one or two moments were moving, but I don't want to write a spoiler.
Any additional comments?
Hiaasen's novels are satirical crusades against government corruption, corporate greed, and most of all, land development and other crimes against nature. He does not spare either side of the aisle, but I suspect that if you tune in to conservative talk radio, you will not like this book. On the other hand, if you are inclined to make donations to The Nature Conservancy and similar-minded groups, Hiaasen may stop your tears for at least a little while.

A strange guy sees an a****** in a new sports car driving down the road tossing litter out of his window and finds an ingenious way to get even with him. From there things begin to escalate in ways that could only happen in a Carl Hiaasen novel. As always ecology is a major theme in the plot of a Hiaasen novel as are the weird offbeat characters that always seem to populate fiction written by the author. Again, as usual, there is a beautiful blonde stuck with the dorky p**** whose role is to be the book's clueless antagonist; until she begins an affair with the almost as clueless but much more lovable protagonist. The audiobook is okay even with a narrator who seems to be mediocre at best; it might be better to read the print version.
