Book: Swamp Story

 Book: Swamp Story

Author: Dave Barry

Pages: 306

This is my 37th read for the year

This is the story of a rag tag gang in Florida.  Jessie - the only level headed one of the group - is stuck with her baby and her boyfriend who is a wanna be reality star.  Jessie left her family for her boyfriend and he squandered her trust fund.  Broke and desperate, she finds some gold on a walk and now is wondering if it is her ticket out of town.  

There is also Ken Bortle and his brother Ben.  Ken has big dreams to make money for their soon to be closed store by making up a Everglades Melon Monster to rake in some money and some fame.  What happens is beyond anyone mixesd up in this sceme dreams of.  Nothing goes the way they planned, but as Dave Barry always says "This is, afterall, Florida"

This waa silly book.  I always enjoy Dave Barry's books - they are hysterical and after living in Florida myself - "so Florida".  It is a well written, quick easy read that I am glad I read.

Stars: 4
