Publisher's Summary

Joey Perrone is a woman with a mission. She's just been pushed overboard from a cruise liner by Chaz, her scumbag husband, and survived to tell the tale. But rather than reporting the crime to the police, she decides to stay dead and instead of getting mad, get even.
Filled with a host of endearingly offbeat characters, and a narrative that is hilarious, romantic, and thought-provoking by turns, Skinny Dip takes us on a journey through the warped politics of southern Florida, and through the madness created by the human heart.

One of the American Greats

I am not one much for American authors, but Carl Hiaasen is a great writer. Combined with a fantastic narration this audiobook is well worth the effort to listening too. After listening to this audiobook my wife has been fired to read other books by the author as well as pressuring me to get another Hiaasen audiobook.

Worthy of a third listening

Carls’ best effort, and I bet he’s proudest of this one, but then again, double whammy was hilarious as well. Top Shelf Hiassen. Thank you.

Acerbic wit and social critique

This was my first foray into Hiaasen territory, and I loved it, particularly in Jeff Harding's rendition. His female voices are very good for someone with such a gravelly voice.
The story starts as a failed wife murder that comes back to bite the husband who fancied that throwing his wife overboard on a cruise would solve the problem of his irritation with her and rejuvenate his bank account. The wife survives, teams up with a better man and finds out a thing or two about that husband of hers that makes him look more than just homicidal: phoney degrees, environmental pollution, fraud, and serial adultery - oh, and he's stupid as well, a fact previously glossed over by his remarkable sexual prowess. Plenty of motives for revenge, and so the game begins...
Hiaasen delights the reader with plot twists, ironic comments on Florida's social mores and protagonists who are intelligent, articulate but lovably flawed. The prose has plenty to recommend it too, not least the quasi-hardboiled wit and the wisecracks. The genre is crime fiction but the characterisations are solid and have psychological depth. This would be fabulous as a holiday read (unless you go to Florida, of course) or on a long, cold journey. Or if you're just hacked off with the rich-and-irresponsible getting richer-and away with everything. Here they don't. They get their heads blown off or at least their arses kicked.

is revenge sweet?

Any additional comments?

this is fast paced and kept me listening just to know what happened in the end and I thought what, is that it. it ended so abrupt.
this is the first book I have listened to by carl Hiaasen which leaves me undecided whether to try any more.
jeff harding did a reasonable job of performing the book.

Hilarious as usual.

I love the way he always gets justice but he humiliates the bad guy first. There's never gore but always a good laugh.
