I loved the book and anyone who says different I laugh at. I admit, the beginning was not all that great, but I really liked the ending. I think HOOT was better. SCAT and FLUSH are of similar quality

Do you like action, suspense, humor, and the enviorment? If so, read Flush! It is a beautifully written book that grabs your attention. It's NOT one of those books where your mind wanders and you start thinking of other stuff. You always want to know what happens next. You feel bad for the environment when you learn what people do to it because of the description in this uses. It wouldn't be good for a teaccher to read to his/her class because it includes bad words and there's a marriage on the rocks. (May divorce). All the same, it's a facinating book. I'm ten years old.

Parents should be aware that this book has characters involved in domestic violence, alcoholism, and drunk driving and could give the impression that this lifestyle is acceptable. You may want to read the book yourself before giving to grade school readers.

I borrowed this book from the library on my nook and was impressed right away. First of all, it is a read that hooks me and maybe you to right into the story. Second of all,it is very understandable and is awesome. Carl Hiassen has really outdone himself.

Carl Hiaasen has written an exhilarating award winner. Flush, Hiaasen’s engaging second novel for young readers, lures you in for an adventure through a 16 year old boy’s perspective. His Dad is in jail. Again. Apparently Noah’s dad thought sinking Dusty Muleman’s boat was the way to get him to stop dumping raw sewage. In this realistic fictional story, Hiaasen demonstrates strength and perseverance through Noah and Abbey Underwood. Hiaasen grew up in Florida and uses his life experience to build the setting of this novel. He has written four cliff hanging books for young readers. They include Hoot (a Newberry Medal winner), Flush, owner of 14 awards, Scat and his newest book Chomp. “I wait for the headlines to inspire me,” states Carl Hiaasen. “A royal flush!” – Chicago Sun Times. Are they right? Let’s take a jaw dropping trip into the modern Florida Keys. With dad in jail and mom out of her mind, Noah and Abbey take matters into their own hands. Could Abbey, a childhood biter, Noah, a passionate guy, and Shelly (the bartender on Dusty’s boat) come up with a creative plan to prove their father’s theory correct? Is it worth it? It’s going to take a wild imagination to find a plan so fitting and perfect to nail Dusty Muleman. Buckle up, because we’re going on a nail biting trip down south to the Florida Keys. “The writing is Pitch Perfect!” – New York Times. Carl Hiaasen uses wonderful language to describe the setting of the Florida Keys. For example, “In the distance, somewhere beyond the Gulf of Mexico, the sun was dropping through a coppery and cloudless heaven.” Another example describes Lice Peeking: “He was lounging on the front stoop, sucking on a cigarette.” When the Green Flash ignites, we dive into Noah’s mind for some vivid details. “When the flash of green came, it lasted for a magical flick of time- so brief and brilliant and beautiful, I was afraid I’d imagined it.” “Enough twists and turns to satisfy even the most serious adventure junkies.”- The Horn Book. Carl Hiaasen was very successful on his second novel for young readers, Flush. Hiaasen pulls you into the beauty of the Florida Keys with detailed imagery. If you like Flush’s action, you’d also like Chomp, Hoot and Scat. Chomp is packed with action in the lush Florida forest. Wahoo and his dad are off to the Everglades, helping Derek Badger on his next episode of Expedition Survival, until something unexpected happens. If you like to protest for what you believe in, then Hoot is the right book for you. Roy knows about the owl crime. The mystical Running Boy knows about this injustice, too. Can they save the owls from celebrities? If you want a page turning thriller, Scat would be a great choice. Does the class bully have something to do with Mrs. Startch’s disappearance after the arson at Black Vine Swamp? Are you up for a mystery? Are you looking for a reading hook? Ask Carl Hiaasen, maybe he’ll lend you one.

I¿ve always loved Carl Hiaasen¿s books. Such as, ¿Hoot¿, which was an amazing story about howls. Its details, voice, and overall suspense kept me on my toes. So I decided to read ¿Flush¿, another book by Carl Hiaasen. Its baby blue cover with an abstract fish drew me in by the hook, and the author¿s name printed in cursive established my expectations. However, this book was the most wearisome thing a human can possible write or read! I would rather spend agonizing hours cleaning horse droppings then reread this abomination. Its lack of detail, suspense, and interesting plot structure made me regret the day I got it from the library. The overall plot of the book was about a gambling ship, called the ¿Coral Queen¿, which was suspected of dropping waste in the water. The main characters, Noah, Abbey, and their father, where trying to prove this to the police and public. Nevertheless, nothing very interesting happened. Some characters did disappear from the story, or got into trouble by the police, which I guess was supposed to raise the readers¿ interest for the book, and stop the main characters from attaining their goal. However, the same processes, like characters getting into trouble, where repeated many times, and so, lost their power of interest. I wouldn¿t recommend ¿Flush¿ because book had no major imagery, lacked suspense, and I could predict the ending very easily. So, instead of grounding your kids, or if you want to punish someone, make them read this atrocious book.
