Atomic Lobster (read 11/08) Recommended

An amusing crime caper set in Florida, Dorsey’s writing style is imitative of Dave Barry and Carl Hiaasen (both of whom had cameo appearances in his first book, Florida Roadkill) with the unfortunate difference of a non-linear story line — things that happen later are told first — which I found to be somewhat confusing. I listened to this in the recorded book format and found it to be entertaining and well read by Oliver Wyman.

The Big Bamboo (read 5/23/09) Meh

I listened to the first CD of the recorded book, read by George K. Wilson, and the non-linear story line that bothered me somewhat in the first book became an aggravation. The confused aimlessness gave me no incentive to continue with the next CD. There are better ways to spend your time.
