I thought the book had a very promising start, with a unique style and some great humor, then it just completely lost momentum. I almost felt as if Barry wrote the first half of the book, then turned it over to someone else for the remainder. The story became less and less funny the more unbelievable it became. I was just really dissapointed with it.

I hadn't read much of Dave Barry, knew only that once there was a TV show sort of based on him starring Harry Anderson. Harry Anderson, I knew, was hilarious. It turns out Dave Barry is too, and this is one of those rare books that finds you on the last page, smiling, tears of mirth flowing generously, and wishing to God it were just a few pages longer. More, it may turn you onto this whole 'Florida' genre that seems to have popped up. Dave Barry is the master of sticking his finger in the American melting pot and pulling out all the boogers. This is a wonderful, wonderful book that will bring the corners of your mouth a little closer to your eyelids.

I still read this book over and over even after all of these years. AND THE MOVIE IS EVEN BETTER!!!!!!! That is a true rarity in this day and age.

This book was short, I finished it in a few hours, but it was fast-paced, and I laughed out loud often. If you like Davve Barry you will love this book. If you have never read anything by Dave Barry you will love this book. one million times better than some predictable series suspense novels and without the gruesome violence.

Hilarious. Who would have thought that so many buffoons could get themselves into so many absurd situations in so few pages. Mr. Barry moved to the top of my Humor reading pile.

I had never read a book by Dave Barry, so I was unprepared for what I was about to find. I knew the story sounded funny by reading the inside cover, but it was past funny and into ridiculous. It starts out with 'Puggy' who has found a new home in the Herk's family tree. It is a step up for Puggy, who has had a run of bad luck later, so maybe his luck is changing for the better. He immediately falls in love with the Herk maid, but from there his luck takes a turn for the worse. The Herk family has their own problems, marital, financial, and a unhappy teen. Two inept hit men are sent to take care of Arthur Herk for pilfering mob funds, two small time criminals try to steal a 'valuable' suitcase that is sure to hold unknown treasure, and two FBI agents on the trail of the suitcase, which actually contains a small nuclear device. All these individual have run-ins with various animals from the Herk family dog who seems to have gone crazy, a poisonous toad, 'gators', and goats. Add into this crazy mess cops following up pranks that end up allowing them to come across some real criminals, even if it is just some small timers trying to hit a big score. The bad news for the criminals is that the suitcase is not holding a portable garbage disposal or any other type of treasure and they will never see the Bahamas. If you want a good laugh and an entertaining read, I highly recommend 'Big Trouble'. It will have you turning pages to see what mishap will fall on Puggy next, and will he ever hold hands with the maid? Will Arthur Herk be able to escape the curse of Elizabeth Dole? Will the Herk family dog ever get to eat out of his dog food bowl again or will they just keeping feeding the poisonous toad instead? All these questions will be answered and more if you choose to read 'Big Troulbe'.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about Dave Barry? Probably nothing. But this book made me laugh, stay up half the night, and thoroughly enjoy it. I've read lots of other articles by Mr Barry, but never before fiction. I absolutely loved this one.

Big Trouble has no social message, no social cause. That’s great, because I wanted to be entertained and Dave Barry delivered. Big Trouble has enough of Barry’s natural wry humor in it to make it fun. Good story with great characters. I enjoyed the read. Jeff Bailey, author of The Defect.

I was looking for light, funny summer read... This book was great! I didn't want to put it down. At several intervals, I even laughed out loud. I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a fun read!
