"Carl Hiaasen [is]""Florida's most entertainingly indignant social critic . . . He presents us with Cherry Pye, a 22-year-old pop star whose every display of narcissistic excess will send a frisson of horrified delight up your spine . . . The outlandish events soar on the exuberance of Hiaasen's manic style, a canny blend of lunatic farce and savage satire."
--"New York Times Book Review"
"Does anyone remember what we did for fun before novelist Carl Hiaasen began turning out his satirical comedies one after another after another? . . . "Star Island "is a concoction worth the time of any reader who wants quality entertainment."
--"San Francisco Chronicle
"Hiaasen reclaims his groove in "Star Island, "a wicked, fizzy sendup of American celebrity culture . . . A very funny book about life in the fast lane."
"Fans of Carl Hiaasen will feel right at home when they plunge into "Star Island. "There's the familiar collection of deliciously tawdry characters, each angling for a piece of the action in Florida . . . And there's the fast-moving plot, and the writing that makes you laugh out loud . . . Hiaasen has turned out another gem. Readers of his previous novels can settle in for more wacky fun in the Florida sun."
"A wild and fun Sunshine State ride."
--"New York Post"
"Hiaasen is at his gleeful best skewering the morally bankrupt. He has plenty to poke fun at here, from a reprehensible real-estate developer with an excruciating groin injury to twin publicists Botoxed within an inch of their lives. This is classic Hiaasen--demented, hilarious, and utterly over the top."
"An outrageous, offbeat novel . . . The torrent of pop culture barbs are bound to please Hiaasen's ardent fans."
