This one seemed a bit darker that earlier books. ( )

I'm sure I've read all of Hiaasen's books before, but as I re-read them, I don't really remember them. My last read of his books "Basket Case" was a major disappointment and hard to finish. On the other had, "Nature Girl" is how I remember his books, great characters (although most a little Florida Crazy) and a good plot. While probably a little wordy at some spots, this was an enjoyable read from start to finish. ( )

wacky Florida fiction - I love Hiaasen's books for kids (Hoot, Flush, Scat), and this book has some of the eco-awareness and more of the quirky characters - a great summer read ( )

Didn't really go anywhere. Character development at a foetal level, most if not all of them seeming like vague, recycled composites of folks from the Hiaasen novels I remember reading in the past. The "self-proclaimed queen of lost causes" part sounds interesting and edgy but it didn't actually mean anything as far as I could see.
Somehow, despite very little actually happening, the novel still manages to seem extremely slow. I think I need to re-read Stormy Weather or something, since I definitely don't remember his other books having this problem...
I'm sure the Floridian wilderness is a wonderful place, though. ( )

I found this book completely unbelievable, but not far enough to quite be comical. Everyone was at least half crazy, and some near impossibly stupid. It wasn't bad enough for me to stop reading it, but I really wasn't impressed. ( )
