Description

Dorsey, living vicariously through "Cadillac Beach's" Serge Storm, is clearly an ardent student of 20th century .

Dorsey, living vicariously through "Cadillac Beach's" Serge Storm, is clearly an ardent student of 20th century American history and a passionate defender of Florida's heritage. Though well camouflaged behind his over-the-top brand of humor, Dorsey's biting social satire rivals that of Tom Wolfe or Carl Hiaasen . he has a huge and very comical imagination and could put it all into words that not only make you roil with laughter but grip you like an octupus tentacle into the whole story.

Dorsey, living vicariously through "Cadillac Beach's" Serge Storm, is clearly an ardent student of 20th century . Serge Storms is an absolutely classic character whose lunacy often causes me to laugh out loud while reading.

Cadillac Beach: A Novel (Serge Storms). Florida Roadkill, by Tim Dorsey, is in a similar vein as Carl Hiaasen. And when I say "similar," they both place their characters and story in Florida. Strange, quirky characters? Check

Early in the novel Dorsey sets a highly comedic tone when Serge offers physic readings for drivers stopped at an intersection

And busting out of Chattahoochee State Hospital. With the mastermind of Serge Storms aka Tim Dorsey at the wheel, who could plan a better tour of bedlam?. Early in the novel Dorsey sets a highly comedic tone when Serge offers physic readings for drivers stopped at an intersection. They are a laugh out loud highlight of the book. Serge's rant about what "makes him angry" on page 19 of the text is nothing short of genius.

I really want to meet Tim Dorsey. The closest I have come was photographing his bar stool at Captain Tony's. The man is brilliantly insane.

Tim Dorsey is to fiction what smashing watermelons with a sledgehammer is to comedy. And that's not a bad thing, but it could get old if it were the only dimension to Dorsey's routine. But what makes Dorsey's writing not only entertaining - but strangely addictive - is that infused within the frenetic pace of his offbeat humor and madcap characters lies an exceptional grasp of pop culture. Dorsey, living vicariously through "Cadillac Beach's" Serge Storm, is clearly an ardent student of 20th century American history and a passionate defender of Florida's heritage. Though well camouflaged behind his over-the-top brand of humor, Dorsey's biting social satire rivals that of Tom Wolfe or Carl Hiaasen. As with Hiaasen, Dorsey relentlessly targets Florida's lunacy from all possible fronts, but from a more playful, less cynical, and certainly more bizarre - if less believable - perspective.

"Cadillac Beach" is typical of Dorsey's fare - another loosely plotted light-speed paced chronicle of Serge's latest adventure. Serge, that rare lovable but certifiably-insane-serial-killing-protagonist, has started a specialty travel service that treats customer to the link between Miami's past and present. Dorsey weaves into this nutty tail interesting tidbits and trivia of Miami's past - Lucy, the Beatles, Cassius Clay and Sonny Liston, Goldfinger, and, most importantly, the infamous "Murf the Surf'" jewel heist of the Museum of Natural History in '64. Throw in the Miami mob, the CIA, FBI, hookers, thugs, bums and dopers and you pretty much get the idea. True to theme, "Cadillac" flashes back to Miami 1964-65, reliving the misadventures of Serge's grandfather Sergio and his misfit mob, as Serge tries to unravel the mystery of granddad's death. Bullets, babes, drugs, and cops - the usual Dorsey stuff - and as always, it isn't the destination that matters, but the fun along the way.

If Serge doesn't keep you smiling even laughing you must be on a real downer. Along the way you learn a little Florida history. And don't forget there are plot twists.

The story is a bit confusing, but the author throws in so much hilarious dialog that I often broke out laughing in my headphones as I listened. Sometimes when I read, I tell my wife the story, but this is a book that she wouldn't like - - it is an adult story for the teenage boy in all if men.

Not everyone will like Tim Dorsey's style, or his main characters, for that matter. Personally, I love it. Serge Storms is an absolutely classic character whose lunacy often causes me to laugh out loud while reading. I've read many of Dorsey's books and plan to eventually read them all.

Just read it and laugh and laugh and laugh and then beg someone to snap you out of it so you can take a deep breath! All of Tim Dorsey's books are hysterically funny...he must have a huge funny bone himself; one thing for sure, though...he has a huge and very comical imagination and could put it all into words that not only make you roil with laughter but grip you like an octupus tentacle into the whole story. I always tell my friends and co-workers to buy Tim Dorsey novels and you'll feel a whole lot better after a harrowing day at work.

Each book in this series is chaotic lunacy and this one is no different. A whirlwind tour of Miami with twists and turns, diamonds , bullets, murder by microwave and more Serge than you can shake a matchbook at.
This book was too funny: chuckles aplenty and even lots of laugh-out-loud moments... assuming of course you have a twisted sense of humor. The plot bounces around both time and location, deftly weaving several subplots together in a surreal stitchwork.

Think of Hunter Thompson giving a tour of Miami's cultural highs and lows, with you strapped to the passenger seat, and you begin to get an idea of what's in store (especially since our favorite serial-killing anti-hero has decided to open a TRAVEL AGENCY for "Serge's Florida Experience".)

Fans of Dorsey will certainly love this, and newcomers will either be entranced or repulsed by the author's over-the-top, in-your-face approach. This is great stuff, for the "right" kind of people.
