Skink--No Surrender by Carl Hiaasen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I listened to this Amazing Audiobook as part of The 2015 Hub Challenge and Hiaasen's plot was funny, gripping, and compelling. Read by Kirby Heyborne, the plot of Malley who goes missing in Florida with cousin Richard (aided by Skink, a 70 yr old ex-governor and supposedly dead) in pursuit was so awesome to listen too. I loved learning about the Florida wildlife (gators, wild boars, herons, loggerhead turtles and extinct woodpeckers) while grinding my teeth as Richard and Skink tracked Malley through all kinds of weather, water, and mosquitos. This is a must read adventure that keeps you riveted and riled to the bitter end.
