    Description

    A wildly entertaining adventure involving snakes, grizzlies, a menacing drone, a missing father, and the kid determined to find him. In classic Hiaasen fashion, the animals here are wild, and the people are wilder!  

    Some facts about Billy Dickens:

    • He once saw a biker swerve across the road in order to run over a snake.
    • Later, that motorcycle somehow ended up at the bottom of a canal.
    • Billy isn't the type to let things go.

    Some facts about Billy's family:

    • They've lived in six different Florida towns because Billy's mom insists on getting a house near a bald eagle nest.
    • Billy's dad left when he was four and is a total mystery.
    • Billy has just found his dad's address - in Montana.

    This summer, Billy will fly across the country, hike a mountain, float a river, dodge a grizzly bear, shoot down a spy drone, save a neighbor's cat, save an endangered panther, and then try to save his own father. 

    "A fun romp that will keep readers hooked." (The New York Times)

    Commentaires

    "Humorous, self-deprecating narration and convoluted exploits will keep pages turning till the satisfying close." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Hiaasen’s latest is richly steeped in the natural world and all the peril it contains, from rattlers to grizzlies. Still, what may be most satisfying for readers are the personal connections Billy makes, whether it’s getting to know his new stepsister or making peace with his dad." (Booklist)

    "Hiaasen’s ecological passion shows no sign of abatement, and neither does his faith in kid resourcefulness and family resilience." (Bulletin)

    Great kids book

    This was a great book for kids 8+. Was a disappointment for those who like Carl Hiassens books about The exgovernor. This book is definitely geared for a much younger audience. We hope he will write more of the hilarious exgovernor and his exploits

    Fun story . . . Reader needs research

    Not the best book of Hisasen but I Still enjoyed it a lot. His characters are wacky and, somehow at the same time, true to life. And, as usual, there is an environmental theme that makes a point, even in the midst of the fun.

    As someone who grew up within 50 miles of Immokalee, FL I was troubled by the mispronouncing of the town. (The “o” is short, not long, as the reader said it). While most people might not know or care, Florida readers would. That’s the kind of thing I’d think he would look up.

    Not for Me

    If you're ultra sensitive, politically correct, hate your fellow human beings, believe that rich people are evil, if you think Texas is evil and full of big meanies, if you want to listen to more white guilt and shaming, this book is for you. The narrators performance is very good.

    Was not what I expected

    This book was not what I expected from a Hiaasen book. But I’m guessing this was one he wrote as a teen novel.

    dissapointed

    This book was not as engaging or fun as previous books I've listened to. It was difficult to stay with it.

    Not a book I recommend

    Why is funny to have a boy following his fathers example of lying to family members, use bullying tactics against bullies, using parents credit cards behind their back their backs and completely hide a large estate of millions of dollars. Oh yes and the two women blissfully forgive all as does the older intelligent daughter-after all the dad lost his parents when he was younger. No. This a really poor book.

    Mailed it in

    Hiaasen’s books are usually so entertaining and full of humor and intrigue . This one is formulaic and simply not very interesting. Sorry, really wanted to love it. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen but never found it:(

    Painful to get through

    Illegal theme full of misinformation and propaganda drivel. The worst Carl book I’ve ever listened to.

    My last Hiaasen listen.

    I used to enjoy Hiaasen's books. His political vitriol has become intolerable. I returned this title for a refunded credit.
