  Star Island (Book): Hiaasen, Carl: Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye (née Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was fourteen--and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster. Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her undercover stunt double, Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too indisposed--meaning wasted--to go out in public. In Razor Girl, Carl Hiaasen’s new novel, when Lane Coolman's car is bashed from behind on the road to the Florida Keys, what appears to be an ordinary accident is anything the wheel of the other car is Merry Mansfield—the eponymous Razor Girl—and the crash scam is only the beginning of events that spiral crazily out of control while unleashing some of the wildest characters.

  “Star Island” makes a great title. But all it contributes to the story is a $17 million house that belonged to a wholesale distributor of three-way catheters. Maybe this is prime Florida humor. Welcome to ‘Star Wars Island’ Ireland. 7 min read. Featuring briefly at the end of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film (Episode VII), the island of Skellig Michael, along with the neighbouring Little Skellig Island, featured prominently in the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Episode VIII). Read on to learn about the so-called Star Wars island Ireland and where it is!

  “Star Island” is Hiaasen’s 12th novel, following “Nature Girl.” It may go on a bit too long, but Hiaasen’s command of the machinery of farce is impressive.   Praise for Stars of Fortune “Roberts’ superior storytelling skills as well as the book’s evocatively drawn setting are guaranteed to keep readers happily turning the pages.”—Booklist “A terrific blend of danger, romance, and mystery!”—RT Book Reviews “Classic Nora Roberts, with a few interesting twists thrown in.”—Fresh /5(81).

Five stars for this amazing debut novel by author Kat Caulberg. Penny is a time traveller. She comes from our times, but jumping through a time gate, she finds herself stranded on Three Star Island in An outcast among people with too prudish manners for her liking, she lives a quiet life in her cottage surrounded by her animals/5(22).

Star Island gives the author's despoliation-of-Florida theme a rest by providing him with another target for his considerable store of outrage: pop celebrity. The chief offender is Cheryl "Cherry Pye" Bunterman, a teenage Britney manque with a singing voice "like a sack of starving kittens" and a dysfunctional entourage that enables (and covers /5(K).

Three Star Island is a book that kept me engaged, it kept me interested, the dialogue was witty and smart with relatable characters and realistic scene descriptions. Very well written.

All in all I highly recommend this book, it contains pirates, time travel, adventure, drama, This was a really enjoyable book, as a matter of fact I have to /5. For this reader, this book had some funny parts and interesting dialogue in places, but it falls flat in comparison to the author's preceding novels.

If you want to encounter Skink in better settings, try Carl Hiaasen's previous books, such as Double Whammy,Stormy Weather or Skinny Dip. But Star Island left me with a 3-star feeling.4/4().

According to Goodreads, the three-star review means, ‘liked it.’ Not a horrendous verdict then. But log onto the WHSmith website, and you’ll find three stars mean ‘average.’ On Wordery, a three is a mere ‘acceptable.’ Oh.

THE THREE STARS. This is the must-have book for any hockey fan. Never has a single region of the country had three legitimate superstars playing at the top of their game at the same time. Sidney Crosby, Nathan MacKinnon, and Brad Marchand could legitimately form an All-World first line.

Thank you STAR PEOPLE for joining us on 31 December We were so excited to be able to bring the countdown of the decade to you and welcoming with you.

This year, STAR ISLAND will be back to Singapore: same date, same location, we hope to see you again. 😊 🎬 【STAR ISLAND SINGAPORE COUNTDOWN EDITION 】/5(71).

If you mean in stars, 1 star= it sucks. 2 stars= why even bother. 3 stars= its worth something to watch. 4 stars= it near to perfect. 5 stars= its perfect. Asked in Warriors Book Series. Star Island is a concoction worth the time of any reader who wants quality entertainment.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Hiaasen reclaims his groove in Star Island, a wicked, fizzy sendup of American celebrity culture A very funny book about life in the fast lane.” —Boston Globe.

Three Star Books publishes books by artists and is owned and managed by Christophe Boutin and Mélanie Scarciglia. Star Island All Star 2 has members. For those who are a part of AS2.Star Island, the habitat of the world’s Glitterati, actually exists in the Florida Keys.

It is inhabited by movie stars, pop singers and billionaire scions of industry, who come and go behind the blacked-out windows in caravans of giant black SUVs. Ok. But here’s the thing: if you get a three-star review, that probably means your book is just fine.

Some of my favourite authors in history occasionally throw down a three-star book. If everyone gave four- or five-star reviews to every book that ever crossed their path, the very act of giving a score out of five would be completely meaningless.
