Staff Reviews

Sick Puppy is
classic Carl Hiaasen.  The dog is cute,
the scoundrels get their due in sickly original ways (do they put something in
the water in Florida?). Expect the usual cast of wild wacky characters.  Only Carl would name his eco-defender
Twilly.  Palmer is self centered and
clueless, if anyone deserved a seat full of dung beetles in their car, it is
Palmer. Published in 2000, it is a lively read. 
Any Carl Hiaasen is a lively read! 
It helps if you have an off beat sense of humor. I enjoyed this on a
flight and did not even notice we were at 30,000 feet!

— Deon Stonehouse


The New York Times bestselling novel in which an eco-terrorist with anger-management issues takes on environmental irresponsibility - now reissued with a new author's note.
An eco-terrorist with a trust fund, Twilly Spree is tailing a litterbug in a purple Range Rover with plates that read COJONES. Before he knows it, Spree is up to his cojones in corrupt Florida politicos and some very sick puppies, including a Toyota salesman turned governor, a Republicans-only hooker, and a millionaire developer with a fetish for Barbies. But when Spree learns that the fate of an unspoiled island is at stake, he's determined not to be outdone. While defending the toads of Toad Island-not to mention one cheerfully oblivious Labrador-he'll steal a man's wife, gouge out the eyes of big game trophies, and even risk his life two or three times in this, Hiaasen's most gleeful muckraking story yet.
