My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I got this book right around the Christmas holiday in 2011, but I never really felt up to reading it after that season ended. Enter: December of 2012 – I decided to drive to see my father for Christmas (since my wife would be out of town.) The trek to his place from mine? About six hours round trip…
Perfect for a short audio book.
Thus I stepped back into Dorsey’s twisted world of Serge A. Storms and ultra-stoner Coleman. The problem is, his “twisted world” is, sadly, based on the real world of Florida. I live here and while folks outside the Sunshine State might think some of the characterizations and claimed “standard holiday news” events are extreme examples, they are (in fact) a disturbing norm thanks to our odd ball population.
The book was a short, fun romp through a holiday season in Tampa, Florida in Tim’s usual style of dark humor and creative murder for the betterment of man. It’s probably still a fun book to read outside Christmastime, but there’s more fun in doing so when you’re surrounded by plastic Santa Claus statues and palm trees. And stuff.
