How Can You Not Love a Book...

...that begins like this:

At the stroke of eleven on a cool April night, a woman named Joey Perrone went overboard from a luxury deck of the cruise liner M.V. Sun Duchess. Plunging toward the dark Atlantic, Joey was too dumbfounded to panic. 
I married an asshole, she thought, knifing headfirst into the waves. 

"Skinny Dip" by Carl Hiaasen, page 15


  1. I listened to an abridged audio of this book and enjoyed it. I like Hiaasen.

  2. Me too, he has become a bit of a comfort author for me - his books are like chocolate, they never fail to cheer me up!
