    Dave Barry and Carl Hiaasen need to have a love child I ll let the medical professionals work out the logistics, and Congress appropriate the funds But as a lover of satire and humor and all things bright, beautiful, and wonderful in the universe, this needs to happen Now INSANE CITY doesn t even begin to describe the colossal aftermath of this potentially dystopian universe, but that s the price you pay for greatness Miami, we re about to hit the mother lode And the future never looked

    I farking ADORE Dave Barry If he didn t live so far away, and if we weren t both already hitched, I d certainly marry him Or at least stalk him Insane City is brilliant farce in the tradition of Carl Hiassen, who, I might add, heartily endorses his fellow Floridian comic genius I believe that this hilarious novel is in reality a ghost written explication of real world examples of chaos theory and the butterfly effect, with Barry channeling Ian Malcolm In other words, nothing is random.If you

    So here s the weird thing I love Dave Barry Read all his non fiction funny books, in the 1980s, and can still quote verbatim from his book about having babies Babies and Other Hazards of Sex But this take off on The Hangover Weak sauce.First it s essentially a script The dialogue between the Groom Posse is shovel ready The gags are in place The character descriptions almost specify exactly which A list comedy actors will fill the bill Vince Vaughn as Big Steve Cameo role for Shaq a So here s the we

    If you ve read Dave Barry, you know to expect absolutely anything to turn up in his stories Here we have Seth on the weekend of his wedding, getting into one mishap after another with his less than successful group of of friends the groom posse Miami is a great setting for a story as it s another character, an eccentric one, one where you shake your head while smiling about that crazy place I ve only been once and I m kind of embarrassed with how tame my visit was This reminded me of a po If you ve read

    If one has never seen the movie The Hangover they might enjoy this bookthan I did I just kept thinking about that movie as I read this Book starts off real good and keeps interest until the ending I thought the author just kind of gave up at the end and wrapped things up all nice and tidy like Ok read but not great

    Many laugh out loud moments, especially in the first half The first third or so definitely felt like a re write of The Hangover crossed with the first episode of The Life and Times of Tim, but still, funny Little too over the top during much of the second half and not nearly as many laugh out loud bits First half comedy albeit not original second half action movie.


  8. Cyndi Cyndi says:

    This is the kind of book that would make a good movie The kind of romcom I would love to watch So much better than Hangover Guy knows she s out of his league, but she agrees to marry him anyway The question is, why As the answer is uncovered the story gets funnier and funnier Warning if you are like me and like to listen to books while you do yoga, be careful The downward dog does not go well when you re laughing your ass off.

    I know it sounds crazy I ve been a fan of Mr Barry s for decades He has elicited from me embarrassing snorts of laughter on too many occasions to count Therefore, and new novel is always an occasion to be looked forward to The insane city of the novel s title is Miami, Florida, soon to be the site of the Weinstein Clark wedding At the heart of the tale is groom Seth Weinstein, and the novel s first few chapters could be the opening of The Hangover III It s bachelor party night, and while I know it sounds crazy I ve been a fan o

    This is another comic crime caper by Dave Barry It s about a nice guy who s otherwise not much of a catch, traveling down to Florida to marry a hot blonde who s also the daughter of a multi millionaire In a span of mere hours things go fantastically wrong and the wedding is in two days Will he make it In a bazillion very short chapters the many things than can go wrong do and they pile up fast it was a bit of a struggle to care since so many of the two dimensional characters aren t all This is another comic crime caper by Dave Barry
