Poor use of a credit.

What did you like best about A Death in China? What did you like least?

This is a Hiaasen from the early 80's and is nothing like what the lovers of Hiassen have come to expect. It is further drug down by a poor choice in readers. He is not terrible but neither is he particularly good. The timing is just off. This makes it a so-so book with a so-so reader and a real disappointment for Hiassen fans.

Never go to China

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Well it's not Hiaasen. Was pretty disappointed it's not his regular humorous tales. It's pretty depressing.

Would you recommend A Death in China to your friends? Why or why not?

Depends on what they were looking for.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
