Do not read this book in public! The men with the butterfly nets will com and take you away!
This weekend I read finally Hiaasen's second young adult novel, "Flush." Like its predecessor, "Hoot," while it's meant ostensibly for young people with restraint as to the language and violence, any fan of Carl Hiaasen's work will enjoy it thoroughly. I did get some worried looks from the bus driver in the rear view mirror when I started cracking up, though. We're used to people going 5150 on public transportation in LA as a matter of course. To actually have a book that instigates involuntary convulsions of laughter is practically unheard of in this town. I think I was laughing out loud by page six. If you're on the last of your psych meds and need to level out or just want to be really entertained (far better than any #@?! "reality TV show could do) pick it up and be happy.
