Quotes & Awards

  • “Rips, zips, hurtles, keeping us turning pages at breakfinger pace.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Giddy, raucous entertainment.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A weird, wild, comic caper of ecological guerrilla warfare that bites as often as it laughs…one helluva ride.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Outrageous…It all comes together in a spectacular finale that combines the fury of Day of the Locust with the imagination of Hieronymous Bosch.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Hiaasen keeps a broad cast of zany character—Winder’s girlfriend answers the phone for a call-in porn service; a steroid-crazed, weight-lifting ex-cop ingests hormones from a portable IV—moving at a breakneck clip. Murders (one accomplished by an amorous rogue dolphin), explosive revenge taken on land-moving machinery, the triumphs of love found and principles regained, and the singular environment of the Florida Keys are ingredients of this…always inventive entertainment.”

    Publishers Weekly

    " Hiaasen as always pleases me, but in this crazy rodent ridden environmental tale I admit, I felt like there was one too many characters or something. I think maybe I need to chill out on Hiaasen cuz I have read so many of his books of late(they are just like candy and I can't keep my fat hand out of the bag)they are all kinda the same...still I recommend him cuz he is hilarious. "
