  • Incredibly Funny

    Although Carl Hiaasen is not a new author to me, this is the first instalment I've read from his 'Skink' series. Set in Florida, this is a satirical and funny social and political tale featuring the president and his first lady, referred to by their secret service names of Mastodon and Mockingbird. An exclusive Palm Beach gala is taking place nearby the Winter White House called Casa Bellicosa. Kiki Pew Fitzsimmons is a prominent member of the POTUSSIES, a group of rich, elderly female fans of the current President. As a rather drunk Kiki disappears whilst at the charity ball, wildlife wrangler, Angie Armstrong, who runs Discreet Captures, arrives. She has been called upon to deal with an enormous Burmese python. Angie knows what really happened to Kiki, but needs some proof, so when Diego Beltran, an innocent, illegal immigrant from Honduras is unjustly blamed for the murder, Angie is determined to free him from prison. With super craziness, insanity and absurdity, Squeeze Me is a great story. Angie is an extremely engaging protagonist and Carl Hiaasen writes very well about his strong characters as well as the Florida setting. The tale really takes off in different directions with incompetent criminals, illegal immigrants, angry mobs, dangerous tanning beds and pythons on LSD. An entertaining story full of colourful characters, bizarre events and humour ranging from cleverly satirical to outrageously daft. I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Little, Brown Book Group/ Sphere via NetGalley at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Not his best.

    Readable but not his best work. Some lame Trump gags and a closing scene that just flops. Lazy writing by his usual high standards.
