Insane City by Dave Barry
Insane City

crafty_girl, June 12, 2013

Although Insane City is classified as a mystery, I don't think it really falls under that genre. Engaged to the ambitious daughter of a billionaire, Seth arrives in Miami for his destination wedding. He gets immediately ensnared in the plight of three desperate Haitian immigrants, at the same time he's trying to get his bride's irreplaceable wedding ring back from an orangoutang. Insane City is ridiculous, funny, and has a lot of heart. It engrossed me immediately, I got through it quickly, and my only disappointment at the end was that it was over.

David Copperfield (Bantam Classics) by Charles Dickens
David Copperfield (Bantam Classics)

David Copperfield is a true testament to Dickens' mastery. He can bring tears to your eyes on one page while the next leaves you smiling. If you think you don't like Dickens, try David Copperfield.
