Narrator Wilson's unadorned, reportorial style provides a perfect ironic backdrop for Hiaasen's socially perceptive and outrageous tale set in southern Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. Hiaasen introduces a set of wild and unruly characters who do their best to exploit the storm damage for personal gain. Developing each character individually, he expertly draws their lives together, until their paths begin to cross. And that's when the fun really begins. Against chaos and unpredictable twists of plot, narrator Wilson maintains a steady counterpoint, like the straight man to the stand-up comedian. Adults who appreciate the irreverence of eccentric characters will enjoy this tale. R.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
