Carl Hiaasen is a crime writer and Star Island is his latest novel, about a pop star loosely based on Britney Spears. His books are more funny than anything else but they really are (for me at least) always laugh out loud funny. His most famous book is probably Striptease, the one they made a film of, with Demi Moore. Not a great movie but an awesome novel.

I guess he is funny.

Now that I get the tone and subject of the book, that cherry on the cover gives me a chuckle.

I've always wanted to try him out and have never gotten around to it. Other recommended titles?

For now, I am reading

Yay, I'm excited! Even though I much prefer actual physical books, I caved and bought a Kindle Fire for convenience's sake, and I haven't devirginized it yet with any downloads. Perhaps I shall pop the cherry with Hiaasen.

I like my kindle. I'm waiting for someone to come up with a decent 7" 4:3 tablet, but I'll only be using it to read comics.

I've only read Herzog, which I love, and always want to read more of Bellow's stuff on the strength of it, but never know which one. So you've basically decided my next book purchase for me. Many thanks.

Currently pushing through George RR Martin's Fevre Dream, and waiting for some Starks to show up. nah, it's a pretty good read. I just had the urge to re-read Ice and Fire, and am trying to stave it off. Gotta love the ritualistic slaughter of teenage slaves by aristocratic southern vampires. Go women's lib!

Finished Captains Courageous the other day. Far too brief a novel really to get to know the characters. And any character development is very rushed. Harvey turns over his new leaf before like page thirty. The prose feels a bit dated, but doesn't really detract from the enjoyment, just makes reading it kind of odd. But yeah, nice fun little book.

After that I started Gardens of the Moon.


 


It's supposed to be really densely plotted and impossible to tell what's going on. I don't necessarily agree, more like alot is really shrouded in mystery, and it's definitely up to the reader to fill in some blanks. Terms and rituals aren't really explained just executed. Which is a really nice change of pace for me. Always irked me when in fantasy novels the plot would have to skid to a halt so this magical thing could be explained or this creature or whatever. Thankfully that happens very minimally here and always to good reason. but nothing too difficult. It's incredibly ripe with high fantasy concepts, all to pretty interesting effect. Divination, undead armies, soul transference, dimensional travel, units in armies are solely composed of wizards dedicated to mage warfare. And the gods are very hands on in this story apparently haha. At least three already are pulling strings of events. Anyway, pretty good, lots of fun.
