I picked this book up because one of my coworkers had read it and said I would enjoy it because it has absurd characters, and he was correct.
This is the only one of the series I have read or probably will read because the plot is easy to figure out. However, the characters are wonderful and the humor is pretty good. The premise of the story is as follows: Jim Davenport reads in a magazine that Florida is a great place to raise a family. So, he moves his family to Triggerfish Lane and anticipates the good life. Unfortunately, it doesn't turn out to be as idyllic as it seemed and a lot of bizarre things begin to happen.
Not the most memorable book I have ever read, but a great read for when you need to give your brain a break, and just want to read something for fun.
