Overview

"Entertaining....The whole volume is a tribute to Buffett's storytelling skills and his essentially sunny, manana-influenced worldview."
THE HOUSTON POST
Just where is Margaritaville anyway? It's not on a map, but it does exist, in the brilliantly creative, sometimes slightly skewed imagination of Jimmy Buffett. Now the man who brought us such memorable hit tunes as "Cheeseburger in Paradise," "Changes in Lattitudes, Changes in Attitudes," and "Margaritaville," has turned his singular talent to writing short stories, some fictional, some not. The happy result is TALES FROM MARGARITAVILLE, a collection so vividly packed with restless dreamers, wild wanderers and pure gypsy souls that just reading it is an adventure itself.

Jimmy Buffett has performed throughout the world and is best known for his outrageous personality. Now he applies his classic, laid-back Southern story-telling to hilarious escapades.

    more from this reviewer

    I have read some of Jimmy┬┐s books and I am a huge fan of his. Yo

    I have read some of Jimmy’s books and I am a huge fan of his. You may label be a Parrothead and I will wear it with pride.

    Tales from Margaritaville is a journey for dreamers and adventurers to let your imagination and your inner child run wild and free. Join us in this wonderfully fun walkabout with Jimmy Buffett.

    Everyone asks, “Where is Margaritaville?” It is in the minds and souls of all us beach lovers.

    We will spend a lot of time In Heat Wave, Alabama, we will also travel from the west to the east coast, visit Wyoming with Tully Mars and cruise the Carribbean. You will meet the Swamp Creature, enjoy some football, play some golf and sail the seas.

    You will smell the ocean and the swamp and feel the cool tropical breezes as we travel through the imagination of a third-generation sailor.

    So many of the destinations are familiar. I have lived in Alabama, been to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard, traveled to Cozumel, Isla Mujeres and Cancun, cruised the Carribbean and had a cocktail or two at Pusser’s in Tortola.

    I loved it! It brought back many memories and gave me thoughts for the future. All the time I was reading, his songs were playing through my head and I had a smile on my face, even when I was worried about them being stranded on the seas in a terrible storm. I had confidence that Jimmy would prevail.

    So, hop aboard and let the adventure begin!

    quick read

    This will not be the best work of fiction you have ever read, but it is still quite fun and a great way to get lost in Margaritaville (a place many of us actually hope exists in some remote corner of the planet). It is great for a vacation or just as a weekend read to escape the winter blues for a short time. If you are Buffett fan, you will enjoy seeing some of his songs come to life and wonder just how much of this is actually fiction. This book may be best enjoyed with a margarita and a great imagination.

    If you can read...

    This is a great read, by Buffett. I read this after his biography, and it matched up perfectly, well, with his attitude. These short stories keep you going from one chapter to the next. Get it, read it, live it.

    Great For the Beach or Anywhere Else

    This book is the best book of short stories I've ever read. Even though I live in California, it's as though I was right there in every story, A great read.

    'Wasting away again in Margaritaville.'

    As a person who grew up and still lives on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, this book hits close to home. Jimmy talks about places that I know well. This is what the 'Real' Gulf Coast is like. This is an outstanding book of short stories. It will grip you from start to finish.

    Great Book

    I never realy got into Jimmy Buffett untill my best firend introduced me about a year ago. His music is amazing and his stories are just as good. I loved the book and I plan on reading many more.

    forget music

    Jimmy Buffett is an unbelievable author. I was skeptic when I was given this book. I thought of Buffett as a singer and songwriter, not author. This book is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Buffett music.
