Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author, has earned a reputation for perceptive, sharp-edged suspense that also cuts to the bone of environmental issues. His novels have been translated into many languages and are touted worldwide for their quirky characters and surreal adventures set in the ravaged cultural wasteland of southern Florida. Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.
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.

Critic reviews

"Biting wit, wacky characters, and a profound fury." ( USA Today)
"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!!
