I waited a while to buy this book, possibly due to a few reviews that painted the story as just a rehash of Hiaasen's oevre. Then I remembered that the wild imagination, quirky characters, and laugh-out-loud lines I had found in all his previous books was exactly why I liked him, and why I wanted more of the same. Okay, it's not East of Eden, which I had just finished (wondering if ANY book could possibly satisfy me after it), but once I started Razor Girl, I just couldn't put it down. This has been the case for most of the other books in Hiaasen's catalog. His abhorrence for greed and sensitivity for the human condition shines through the outrageous characters he draws. His humor and wit is as sharp as any writer out there, and I am inevitably (and often!) given to chuckles, chortles and outright belly laughs. This guy is a master satirist. The book is fun, fast-paced, and anything but a disappointment!
