    This book is extraordinarily okay It pummels you with okayness The characters Okay The plot Okay The humor Okay The writing A okay Hiassen is masterful in the way he never goes astray, never veers into good, never dips into bad it s a stunning, tour de force of okay If you set out to write a book that was just okay enough to keep reading, but not so good that you actually started to like it, this would be it It honestly couldn t have been okay if it tried Would I recommend it Meh Would I warn you off of it Meh Do you see the level of ambivalence this okay book inspires It s okayosity is off the charts I liked it a perfectly okay amount What else ...

    I thought I was too old for Hoot s message but Carl Hiassen proved me wrong Hoot, with it s wonderfully developed array of the most interesting characters I ve seen since The Importance of Being Earnest, goes beyond the story of Roy Edberhart if that s how you spell it , Mullet Fingers, and Beatrice Leep in their struggle against the building of a Mother Paula s Pancake ...

    I give thanks for authors like Carl Hiaasen who write stories that strengthen our youth s conscience and awareness of environmental matters Hoot was Mr Hiaasen s children s book debut, and although it appears targeted for the middle grade children s crowd, I as an adult thoroughly enjoyed it I must note though that I read this with my eleven year old and his enthusiasm was pretty contagious He is slowly but surely devouring each of Mr Hiaasen s novels so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and see what it s all about.The main plot of Hoot is an ecological thriller mystery of sorts centering on endangered burrowing owls The middle school aged characters are great and I enjoyed seeing young perspectives about adults, rules laws, and the environment in general I can see why my son loves this author Apparently this title has also been adapted to film, so I m sure I ll be watching it soonpossibly even tonight if my son has his way LOL.As with most of the books I enjoy, I can t help but research a bit on either the author or the subject matter Reading just inspires me to learn After I read HERE about these endangered creatures, my appreciation soared for Mr Hiaasen and his decision to increase awareness Here s what I learned about burrowing owls and their str...

    About what you would expect from a cheesy, feel good YA novel I probably would have rated it higher if I was a teen some YA translates well to adults, not really so much here But, it wasn t bad and I can definitely see myself recommending it to my kids when they are teenagers.

    Hoot by Carl Hiaasenis a coming of age story that I adored It has everything a kid could relate to bullies, not fitting in, wanting to help, a noble cause, friendship, and family The best part was the cute owls and the way the author brought ...

    The following review is by my son and padawan Liam I give HOOT 4 and a half stars I liked how there was a mysterious running boy called Mullet Fingers I liked how Mullet Fingers and Beatrice are related I like how Roy tricked Dana into thinking there were cigarettes in a trailer and that he stepped in the mouse traps.I disliked that the ending kind of left you hanging I also didn t like that the...

    Mullet fingers just escaped from his parents and know he is trying to save some owls that live in a mothers Paula pancake house terrain that is going to dig the owl s houses and obviously kill those owls Till there you can see it s a dumb and boring stories story but when mullet fingers starts risking his liberty painting the cops cars windows in black and trespassing private property not going to school which is illegal in Florida and escaping from his parents you are obviously in suspense Carl Hiaasen uses excellent word choice and excellent imagery I can imagine perfectly how Dana is struggling poor Roy The techniques Carl uses in this book are to have 2 settings and that in the end they unite and also she is having you with suspense so you keep reading it and also it has a bit of mystery I think that the author s intention is to be careful of our actions because if you don t know what you re doing you re probably end hurting th...
