Squeeze Me by Carl Hiaasen Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • A hilarious novel of social and political intrigue, set against the glittering backdrop of Florida’s gold coast, from the author of Skinny Dip and Razor Girl

“If you could use some wild escapism right now, Hiaasen is your guy.” —The New York Times
 
WITH A NEW EPILOGUE

At the height of Palm Beach’s charity ball season, Kiki Pew Fitzsimmons, a prominent member of geriatric high society, suddenly vanishes during a swank gala. Kiki Pew was a founding member of the Potussies, a group of women dedicated to supporting the President, who spends half the year at the “Winter White House” just down the road. Meanwhile, Angie Armstrong, wildlife wrangler extraordinaire, is called to the island to deal with a monster-sized Burmese python that has taken residency in a tree. But the President is focused on the disappearance of Kiki Pew. Never one to miss an opportunity to play to his base, he immediately declares her a victim of rampaging immigrant hordes. This, it turns out, is far from the truth, which now lies in the middle of the road, where a bizarre discovery brings the First Lady’s motorcade to a grinding halt. Irreverent, ingenious, and uproariously entertaining, Squeeze Me perfectly captures the absurdity of our times.

Squeeze Me (Carl Hiaasen) Book Reviews

Hilarious!You will chuckle through every page unless of course you are among the minority of people who voted for the orange buffoon. Hiaasen once again captures the ridiculous life styles of southern Florida..Score: 5/5

DisappointedNot my favorite. Will be viewed as petty and snipe loaded by many current and certainly most future readers. Too bad. I’ve enjoyed so many hours and several absolute belly laughs in the past. Will miss Carl..Score: 2/5

UghAlways looked forward to his books. Story is great but the political infusion... I read to escape this constant, typical, uncreative drumbeat..Score: 2/5

Squeeze meWell I think the right wing at least reads but they confirm to me that they have no sense of humor. I mean geez a billionaire (so called) who has the worst hair , orange pekoe?, on the planet. Ouch and he’s not to be ridiculed? The author, though, has always made me laugh with his pointed amusement with conservatives and land developers who have raped Florida . I went to college there and what I saw occur between 1970 and 1974 was a total farce and disgusting as to land use. So hiassen jokes about it? I love his satire and overall humor. Some of his people and scenarios make you laugh hysterically and out loud no matter where you are. I love all his books as they also are decent mysteries that have seemingly drug induced scenarios. I can’t wait for his next one. Keep em coming, Carl , I love how you piss the right off. They deserve every bit of it. I mean Mitch McConnell ? You can joke all day about that fk!.Score: 4/5

Save the politics for some other forumI read Hiassen for escapism. What a disappointment. The plot of this book only serves as a setup to attack Trump and his followers. For the record, I think the former president is a buffoon. But I didn’t buy the book to endure the author’s cathartic hit piece. I just wanted a good yarn. Gave up 1/3 of the way..Score: 1/5

Squeeze MeThis book was such a fun read! It was wonderfully quirky and our heroine was filled with wit, charm and a steadfastness sense of duty. Hiasson, as usual, had me laughing out loud!.Score: 5/5

Don’t Waste your timeDone with his books. The plot was disjointed and forced to put forth his liberal agenda. This was no humorous political satire. Disgusted with the character assassination of 45 and family..Score: 1/5

Classic Haissen and timelyFast pace, weaving plot, usual host of eccentric characters, some old friends and politically just what I needed!.Score: 5/5

Poor Trump fascistsWould y’all be happier if the hero was Hannity smiting and ruling Libtard’s everywhere to help a Cult led by a narcissistic orange man child....Bunch of sore losers who can’t take a joke. If Donald Trump’s not the personification of necessary satire then I don’t know what it is.....Score: 5/5

Squeeze MeMy first read my this author, I found it a cleaver interesting fun story I will read his others..Score: 5/5

Too politically motivated for my tasteGreat story except for the political bits and pieces. Not like old hiassen where politics were fluid. The political part of this book is very forced.Score: 2/5

Asking for refundDishonest Apple description. Politically nasty and idiotic, not funny at any level..Score: 1/5

Clearly Rushed by Hiaasen - DisappointingI’ve read all of Hiaasen’s other books and was exited to hear that this one came out. However, I was unable to even finish it. I too am not of fan of our president and was looking forward to what Hiaasen had in store for him. But the book is just not on par with his other works. Unfortunately, it seems as though Hiaasen rushed this one through in order to capitalize on the country’s current political climate. He got my money thus time, but not again. Carl, I thought you were better than this..Score: 1/5

Squeeze meA satire with the truth not far beneath it’s text. I loved it!.Score: 5/5

Absolutely trashWhat this author fails to understand just like late nite comedy so called celebrities and over paid athletes is, half the country not only doesn't care about your political opinions but are insulted that you would take our money and time before giving yours. Stick to your own lane! I myself am smart enough to know I would lose customers I.e. Money if I gave my political opinions while performing what they paid for. So just like the other groups of people like those mentioned above you will lose money when those of us that you insult take our "entertainment " money elsewhere. I am an avid reader and will make sure to never send another dime on your total crap!.Score: 5/5

ResearchGlock handguns don't have a safety other than a lever built into the trigger. No way to switch one on..Score: 4/5

His worse book yetHiaasen used to write books that were fun to read and taught a lot about the real Florida. This piece of junk is a non stop ugly attempt to caricature our sitting President, leaving no nasty turn of phrase or image undone. The “plot” is ridiculous and the characters wooden and trite. Don’t waste your money..Score: 2/5

Squeeze MeLove it! Deft and exaggerated handling of 45 and his bumbling antics in Florida. And though I loved the lady wrangler, it is pretty clear that a man wrote the characterization. Bit shallow. Can appreciate how the First Lady was portrayed, don’t have a grudge against her and she came out better than I expected..Score: 5/5

Not as funny as his usual.Disappointed. Expensive and not as funny as his usual books..Score: 4/5

A Fun RompTypical Hiaasen, which is what makes it so much fun. Quite topical too..Score: 5/5

Could not put it downI have read all of Carl Hiaasens books and wait anxiously for the next one. ‘Squeeze Me’ does not disappoint, I couldn’t put it down..Score: 5/5

Loved it!As an anti-Trumper, I loved how ridiculous his rabid, idiotic fan base was depicted in the book. The Potussies were spot on as complete nincompoops. Even better, were the reviews from his supporters. It’s hysterical they refuse to see how their devotion to a mad man looks to those of us who are sane. Well worth the read!.Score: 5/5

Hiaasen’s BestHow does a satirist handle someone who is a parody of themselves? Hiaasen parodies Trump and his Trumpsters brilliantly, deafly wielding all the tools of satire like Swiss Army Machete. Of course he is aided by a super hero named Skink..Score: 5/5

FunnyIn this time we need a murder mystery that is funny. And this book is!.Score: 5/5

WorthlessI have read several of this authors books and have enjoyed his brand of humor. This book is a blatant hatchet job on our president and a obvious attempt to pander to the progressive movement. Carl I will not spend another cent on your books..Score: 1/5

Great as alwaysI’ve read every one of Mr Hiaasen’s books. Even read the children’s books to my kids. This one is another great read. I guess the nay sayers that are leaving negative comments are Right wing Trumpers that don’t like to hear anything Left leaning. I think he’s funny no matter your politics. I highly recommend!.Score: 5/5

NThe author has decided to inject his politics into his writing. While his early books were enjoyable, his last few (and this one was the worst) have been clearly written to impart his leftist views and to belittle those he disagrees with. I couldn’t finish it, and it’s the last time I ever purchase a book by Hiaasen..Score: 1/5

A Fun ReadWhat an enjoyable summer read. Naturally, I picture the former President and his wife which gives the story an interesting perspective. The twists and turns make this a fun read..Score: 4/5

Squeeze MeI never laughed out loud reading a book! It was just what I needed and Hiaasen captured the sould of the Trump family perfectly in this comic joyride. He loves to play with people of enormous wealth and this book doesn’t disappoint. If you. are a Trump lover, don’t even try to read this book, though. You will be offended. Read it if you want to spend a few days laughing and enjoying just being alive in these crazy times..Score: 5/5

Squeeze MeRidiculously political and exaggerated. It was like trying to read a children’s fantasy book as an adult.
