Atomic Lobster (Serge Storms Mystery, #10), by Tim Dorsey (2008)

Atomic Lobster (Serge Storms Mystery, #10)Atomic Lobster by Tim Dorsey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Once again, Serge Storms and his permabuzzed friend Coleman end up on a madcap spree. Most of "Atomic Lobster" takes place in and around the Tampa Bay area. They even had breakfast at Skyway Jack's, my favorite diner and a Bay Area landmark.

This tale brings together all sorts of Serge's old cohorts: the Davenports, Johnny Vegas, Lenny, and even more representatives from the evil McGraw family. Like any of Tim Dorsey's Serge Storms novels, there are a lot of laughs. Still, I didn't feel especially drawn into the story. It reminded me of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." An entertaining enough caper story, but not the best story ever told.

About tom

B.A. in Literature, Minor in Film Theory and Criticism, thus meaning all I’m trained is to write blog posts here. Neptune is my favorite planet–it vents methane into the solar system like my brother does. I think Chicken McNuggets look like Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Indiana. There are times when I’m medicated, which is why I wrote about McNuggets. Buy some today and tell me I’m wrong! Anyway, Beyond that: mammal, Floridian, biped.Good Night, and Good Luck. Besos, tom
