I’m going to say the same thing about this one as I did about Tim Dorsey’s first book (Florida Roadkill)

Think of Pulp Fiction taking Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride through Florida. If you didn’t laugh at Pulp Fiction, don’t even bother picking up this book.

Once again there is a cast of what feels like hundreds. Each one of them is loonier than the previous one. Drugs, violence, sex, con men, a incompetent weatherman, a dancing chihuahua, crooks, a passive-aggressive private investigator and they’re all running loose in Florida. Oh, and there’s a killer hurricane on the way.

At the heart of all this is once again Serge Storms. Insane and off his meds, he knows more about Florida History than everyone else put together has forgotten. He’s still trying to catch up with that five million dollars he was chasing in the previous book,

Definitely not a series for everyone, but if you like dark (really dark) humor and over the top craziness mixed with a bit of brutal violence along the way, give Tim Dorsey’s books a shot. I’m definitely going to continue reading his books.
