    TooBusyReading: Tim Dorsey has the same type of absurd humor and quirky characters as Hiaasen. Florida setting, too.

This is a classic Hiaasen book with snarky humor and an interesting plot. The story revolves around a pop star who is out of control even with her parents and manager supervising her. Skink becomes involved which always adds fun to one of his books. ( )

Hiaasen is great for a light, humorous read. Some classic characters return, including Skink and Chemo (with his weed wacker arm.) Cherry Pye is a spoiled little brat, who has such a horrible voice she has to lip sync, but takes every drug she can. Towards the end, I was hoping she would flame out so others would profit. Still has the requisite laughs. ( )

This book was only alright. Drugged out pop star and her "momager", her tour manager and her entourage and the lengths they go through to keep her antics out of the press. A paparazzo that is obsessed with getting the picture of her when she OD's which is pretty much inevitable. And her double, a struggling actress that looks like Cherry, they hire to portray Cherry publically when she's in rehab or the hospital having her stomach pumped so the public doesn't know. There's a host of other characters in this book, none of which are very likable. There's a lot going on and having listen to the audiobook, it's possible I may have missed something, but it was just one thing after another. There was kidnapping, hostage taking, bribery, theft, duplicity, heavy drug use, violence, sex, this book as something for everyone I guess. I just never found anything I could like about any of these people. I guess if I had to choose one I was at least interested in it would be Annie, the double. She seemed to be the most "normal" of any of them. I also didn't know this was part of a series, but Skink is a character, though not a key player so I didn't feel like I was missing anything by not reading the first five books. ( )

I think he phoned this one in. ( )

This was what you would expect from Carl Hiaasen. I would not rate it one of the best, but it was good and I found myself chuckling several times while reading it. The book is based on very current topical subject matter but also brings in a character from one of his older books.

If you are looking for a light read and liked Skinny Dip and Nature Girl and some of the others you will enjoy this one too. ( )
