100-Word Review: Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen

without comments

If you’ve read any of Carl Hiaasen’s other novels, you know what to expect from Skinny Dip:  oddball characters, witty dialogue, ridiculous circumstances, and more than a little of an environmental bent.  (And, if you haven’t read any of his stuff, then now you know what to expect.)  Joey Perrone’s douchebag husband (yes, Joey’s a woman — this book takes place in Florida, not New England) tries to murder her by throwing her off a cruise ship; she spends the next 300 pages surreptitiously getting even (he thinks she’s dead, of course).  And we get some Everglades history as a bonus, too.
