What this is: a weird, zany potato-chip novel, the kind that’s greasy and not-too-good for you but which is light and brainless fun. Like a Dukes Of Hazzard TV episode or any of the films starring Steve Buscemi.
___Carl Hiaasen writes in short bursts, often using predictable dialogue, and cliché descriptions, but overall, the writing doesn’t diminish from the wacky experience. Oh, and the climax near the end of the novel is a perfectly zany end for a zany adventure.
___Read this book if you’re: sick or bored, or traveling, or on the beach. Not if you want intellectual stimulation.

I am on page 400+ and need to read another Hiaasen book before I make a comment. Will finish Sick Puppy before I start Basket Case.

"Review" by , "Hiaasen's usual cast of zany characters shows up en masse in Sick Puppy, a frolicking sendup of ecological subterfuge, Florida's fabled politics and downright human foibles."
"Review" by , "Carl Hiaasen's books are so much fun, it's a wonder they're still legal."
"Review" by , "A sexy, fast-paced romp."
"Review" by , "It's hard not to have a good time with this one."
"Review" by , "Hiaasen delivers everything his fans want. He's still funny as hell and mad as hell; his myriad plot twists won't give you a moment's peace, and his characters are kinkier than anything you could order on late-night TV."
"Review" by , "Carl Hiaasen is a lot like Evelyn Waugh. Both simmer with rage, both are consumed with the same overwhelming vision...[both] write the funniest English of this century."
"Review" by , "A comic romp that is thoroughly enjoyable.... Hiaasen's novels seethe with fury against the despoilers of Florida, but his perverse comedy cuts the message-mongering like cream cuts Kahlua."
"Review" by , "Laugh-out-loud funny....If Carl Hiaasen isn't the funniest environmentalist in the country, i don't know who is."
"Review" by , "Delights...begins with an absurd premise and then gets even nuttier."
"Review" by , "From start to finish, Sick Puppy is a howl."
"Review" by , "Hiaasen's hijinks are outrageous, unbelievable, and thought-provoking. The worrysome grains of truth and reality in the story give pause."
