Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards. Strap on your seatbelt. Stormy Weather is an unforgettable, turbulent ride.
"These strange characters maneuver through a broken landscape as if born to it, and the author's control of both style and narrative keeps the novel from slipping into silliness....A fiction that explores the intersection of the grotesque and the human." Library Journal)
"Combining slapstick nightmare, black comedy, and moral outrage in just the right proportions." (Booklist)

You love it or hate it....
Hiaasen is Hiaasen. Most of the books are remarkably similar to one another, but if you like them, you can digest them all without any trouble, especially those of you with some knowledge of Florida. Narration is good, characters are 'Hiaasen' and stories are great fun.

But a sunny review...
I absolutely love Hiaasen novels! If you've never listened to one before, just give it time and you will laugh out loud at some of the wacky characters. This is the second I have listed to, and will definitely listen to others. The only way this book could have been better is if Stephen Hoy had narrated - he read the other Hiaasen book (Skinny Dip). He was a little better at capturing some of the sarcasm and irony the author intended. A great read if you have an offbeat sense of humor!!
