Book Review: The Carl Hiaasen Omnibus~ Tourist Season, Double Whammy, Skin Tight

This omnibus edition hits our value for money target and, even better, they are an excellent read. Hiaasen satirises Florida: this is basically impossible as Florida is self-satirising. Hiaasen’s targets are politicans, developers, criminals, businessmen, tourists and the annual influx of people escaping winter. They’re all devastating Florida, which would be an environmental paradise if it weren’t for them. Hiaasen loathes them and you too will loathe them after you’ve read these books. Satire like jokes don’t always travel well. Go for it!

Why you should read these books: They’re very, very funny.
Why you shouldn’t read these books: Kindle readers will be disappointed that it’s a real life book with pages that you have to turn.
