Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen

Author: Carl Hiaasen
ISBN # 0552772534
476 pages

My sister-in-law made me take this book when I saw her last weekend. I almost purposely left it behind as, going by the previous reading she was telling me about, I really didn't think it'd be something I would enjoy all that much.

I was wrong.

From the moment Joey Perrone is thrown off a luxury liner by her husband on their 2nd anniversary cruise (which is right on the first page, by the way - hell, it's in the opening paragraph!) I was hooked.

Witty, slick, dark humour, well-written drama; this one has it all.

I might even be tempted to sample Hiaasen's other offerings...

Rating: 7/10
