Jan 11, Michael Pixton rated it really liked it Shelves: Even the action parts were relaxing. Was just the sort of book I was hoping for. Aug 30, Derek Dowell rated it it was ok. After finishing, my first thought is that maybe the Big Six publishers in New York do get it right sometimes whilst sifting the slush pile. Tacoma certainly can crank out the words with skill, and even humor now and then, rank this simplistic effort solidly below what a fellow writer with a major book deal can do — such as Tim Dorsey.
Possum rancher flees Texas with a couple of murderous dim bulb prison escapees in hot pursuit and, oh yeah, barrels of radioactive waste have been popping up in his pond. He meanders his way down the Florida peninsula and spends most of the rest of the book wandering around. Sure, there were some chacmools and cultists thrown in but, even by Florida writing standards, this is a VERY thin plot. Would YOU like to read a book that detailed what you did between breakfast and lunch on the average day?
Few writers are skilled enough to keep us interested in such minutia.
Characters Key Weird was populated by the usual mixture of burn outs, whack jobs, and amoral criminals that you expect to wander through a south Florida novel. Problem was that Taco Bob was one of the least interesting. Tacoma spent more time giving us insight into the thought processes and motivations behind bad guys and gal Sam, Butch, and Carol than the alleged star of the show, Mr. After two years of dithering about whether or not to give Key Weird a shot, I found myself plowing through the story, not quite enjoying it and not quite hating it.
After finishing it, I came away with the feeling I had read a sketch more than an actual story. Been served potatoes without the meat. Given the punch line but not the joke. Key Weird was a bit of a letdown and not as fun as it should have been. May 12, Glenn rated it liked it Recommends it for: Good, enjoyable read, but for me not quite on the same level as those other authors. Robert Tacoma must be a fan of Carl Hiaasen, and readers of Key Weird who also read Carl Hiaasen should recognize one of his recurring characters, who makes a couple of brief appearances in this book - the former governor of Florida, Clinton "Skink" Tyree.

No point to the story. Different characters from different areas and walks of life end up in Key West. I thought the story would somehow bring them all together in one story, but no. Stick with Carl Hiaasen if you looking for a decent story with some memorable odd characters.

But soon after he leaves town, the entire state is in an uproar when a young man on a mission from Texas makes off with the most prized souvenir in Key West. Meanwhile, a sexy but twisted cult leader shows up, determined to find some magical gold idols so she can rule the world, or at least the world of lingerie fashion.
But first she has to deal with a renegade bounty hunter, a nearly invisible rival from her past, and the untold thousands of people cramming into Key West for the biggest outdoor concert in the state's history. Taco Bob is going to have plenty of surprises waiting when he returns to the southernmost city in the US. At least it was the southernmost city when he left. Read more Read less.
