Over Bonnie's objections, Max eagerly sets out through the rubble, debris and mayhem - and promptly vanishes. The only clue to his whereabouts: a runaway monkey. The only person who can help Bonnie's search: a mysterious young man with a tranquilizer gun and a roomful of human skulls.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hiaasen's latest madcap romp across southern Florida presents an apocalyptic panorama of the region in the wake of a storm much like Hurricane Andrew. Transforming a suburban sprawl into a lawless frontier, the hurricane puts on a collision course a demented cast of tourists, scam artists and eccentrics: New York ad exec Max Lamb, who decides to spice up his Orlando honeymoon by taking his bride and his camcorder into the teeth of the storm; Skink, the swamp-dwelling former Florida governor (last seen in Native Tongue) who kidnaps Max in an effort to teach him to respect the land; Edie March, a seductive grifter who hatches a half-baked personal-injury scam with the help of Snapper, a sadistic ex-con; and Augustine, the altruistic son of a jailed drug smuggler, who juggles skulls to relax. Also mobilized are a mob enforcer with a penchant for crucifixions, a voodoo-practicing building inspector and a number of menacing escaped animals. In his sixth novel, less a straightforward thriller than a sprawling slice of life, Hiaasen dexterously resolves his many subplots, uniting the principals in a climactic chase across the swampland-while adding sting to his perpetual theme: the unrelenting depredation of Florida's cultural and natural heritage. 200,000 first printing. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Take one devastating Florida hurricane, a New York couple on their honeymoon, a skull-juggling but sensitive guy, one former governor turned Everglades hermit, two small-time con artists, a corrupt building inspector, two state troopers, a hapless insurance agent, and what do you have? The recipe for Hiaasen's (Native Tongue, LJ 9/1/91) sixth novel, a delightful romp that is by turns hilarious and moving. These strange characters maneuver through a broken landscape as if born to it, and the author's control of both style and narrative keeps the novel from slipping into silliness. The crimes plotted are minor aspects of a fiction that explores the intersection of the grotesque and the human. Buy wherever good fiction is read. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/95.]-A.J.

    Wacky trip into a post-hurricane Florida

    I had heard a lot about Carl Hiaasen, especially from some friends whose taste in books I trust, and so on their suggestion, I picked up Stormy Weather. Because his books are shelved in the mystery section of most bookstores I visit, I expected this one to read like a mystery. Instead it seemed more of a combination satire, slice of life, and environmental commentary. Even so, or perhaps precisely because of these things, I enjoyed the book enormously. Hiaasen's writing is clever and deft, full of a vivid eccentricity of people and place that effortlessly drew me in. I look forward to reading more of his work.

    Funny read

    At first I was a little hesitant with this book, but it proved me wrong. My first Carl Hiassen book was skinny dip and I was totally addicted. The same happened with this book. The characters are just so unique...especially Skink. You get so into the story that you never want to put it down no matter how much your eyes hurt...

    Hiaasen rocks!!!

    What can I say - typical Carl Hiaasen. Quirky characters, convoluted plot, strange situations... another great read. Hiaasen is one of those writers that you either enjoy and have fun reading, or you find too weird to waste your time on. I fall into the first group and found myself smiling during the whole book.

    Stormy Weather

    For me, Carl Hiaasen is a hit or miss. I either read him compulsively or get bored and can't finish. This is my favorite of his novels. It just struck my funnybone; whether it was the idiot husband wanting to stormchase or the politician on the skids, I literally laughed until tears were streaming down my cheeks. A ridiculous and delightful blend of wackadoo characters and situations. Your mileage may vary.

    Horrible book can't wait to finish it..if it gets any worse I mi

    Horrible book can't wait to finish it..if it gets any worse I might not finish it. To many characters to keep track off and a silly plot. Hope the next book I read by him is better.

    Good but not his best

    I've pretty much read all of Hiassen's books and thought this was one pretty good but not his best. I actually think he just had slightly too many characters in this story with their own separate storylines that kind of interrupted the flow of the story. Hiaasen though is an incredible storyteller with a unique and twisted sense of humor and I am looking forward to future stories from him.
