Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Carl Hiaasen's best-selling novels are funny and sardonic. Hilarious postcards of south Florida, they also decry the lurid commercialism that is draining and paving the tropical landscape. Tourist season is swinging into high gear in Miami. So are the activities of a bizarre terrorist group determined to keep the hapless 'snowbirds' away. Armed with bombs, weed, and jumbled credos, they move toward their grand target, the Orange Bowl Parade, with plans to bring Miami and its tourist trade to a halt. The cast, which includes a deranged journalist, a visionary ex-jock and a lovesick detective, is just the kind of company Carl Hiaasen's fans love to keep. Narrator George Wilson's performance lures each quirky character out into the full light of the Florida sun. With over half a million copies in print, this is one of Hiaasen's most popular works.

I was browsing through @audiobooks_com selection of books to start my next read when I came across The Tourist season, I’m so glad I started reading it. I could not stop listening to this book! It was humorous, interesting and addicting! This was such a brilliant and fun story, I had the most amazing time reading it! I laughed and smiled during this read a lot. I absolutely loved Hiaasen’s humor and writing style! I felt like I’m a tourist in Florida through this book, it was honestly the most magnificent experience! I cannot wait to read more amazing books by Carl Hiassen, I highly highly recommend reading this if you want to have a fun time!

This is the third book I have read by Carl. Even though I liked it, it wasn’t as good as the others I have read. If this is your first book by this author don’t be put off as Carl is an awesome writer.

This book was okay. It seemed very dated even for the year it was set in. The writing was a little silly sometimes. This was my first book from Carl Hiaasen so perhaps I’ll give it another try.

I read Double Whammy first, and I loved it, and I immediately jumped into Tourist Season. But I think I should take a break between Carl Hiaasen’s books to fully appreciate each of them. While the satire makes them fun and whitty reads, there’s a lot of meat to the plots. I need more time in between, then I’ll definitely come back for more.
