I happen to find his books entertaining and thought I'd share.

Latitude: S. Florida
Attitude: Not so much liking what has been done there.
Have you read any James Lee Bourke ? I'm not knocking Hiassen but I think JLB is a better writer. Hiassen, I've read (and enjoyed) a few of his books though not recently. JLB otoh, is for me a must buy, must read.
