I’m having a hard time getting to sleep. The combination of a headache, and a very active mind have kept me awake for hours. I decided to stop fighting to sleep and just get up. As my phone was in my phone, I had no “reading material” for a brief bathroom visit. I decided to pick up my kindle, and the first thing I saw was an ad for Carl Hiaasen’s latest book, “Skink – No surrender.” Holy dog crap! That’s an appropriate response considering what I was doing. Yes!
First of all, I love Carl Hiaasen as an author! He is a hilarious mystery, satire novelist, one of my all-time favorites. Skink, on the other hand, is my absolute favorite character from his books! The dude was the Governor of Florida, and one day; he simply couldn’t take it. The corruption, the lies, he wanted to cause a change, but he was blocked every time. So he up and left, went into the woods and became a renegade, homeless man of sorts. He spends his day fighting crime, and evil law breakers through his own methods, usually involving some form of pain and humiliation. He is an absolutely hilarious nut job, Skink.
I pressed that “buy” button on my Amazon kindle faster than you can blink. I’m several pages in and cannot wait to get back to the book. They have already introduced Skink, and he as hiding underground, breathing from a straw, looking for turtle egg poachers. I’m telling you guys, this dude is a trip. I didn’t know he had a new book out, so I thought I would share this information with my readers in case any of you wanted to know.
I can’t wait to get back to the book!
