Book Review: NATIVE TONGUE

Native TongueNative Tongue by Carl Hiaasen


My rating: 1 of 5 stars

At first, I was very excited to read this book. I'd heard great things about the author, and the description on the back of the book made it sound like a kick-in-the-pants.

I needed a funny kick-in-the-pants kind of book to distract me and make me laugh.


Well, it worked ... for about the first fifteen pages. Halarious.


But, then it simply became ridiculous. Too ridiculous. The kind of ridiculous where I want to shake the author and ask, "Do you think I'm that stupid? Come on!"


So, I decided to stop wasting my precious time around page 300 (seriously, I gave it a good effort ... but reading should not require effort), and I set the book down. Or more specifically, I set it in the "get-rid-of-this-stuff" box.


I doubt I will read this author again. Big disappointment.
