My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Serge Storm: secret agent.

That should tell you just how absurdist Tim Dorsey's latest novel, Pineapple Grenade, is.

Serge and Coleman are in Miami, and Serge wants to find a spy job. He makes his way through Miami's different consulates, attracting the attention of two bitter, rival CIA teams. Eventually, he joins up with a beautiful and deadly Latin American spy.

Naturally, Serge ends up killing a few deserving jerks, including one carjacker, who is found hollowed out without a mark on him.

At times, I found "Pineapple Grenade" a little too precious and madcap, but it's a Serge Storms novel, not Beowulf. This is neither the best nor the worst of the series. Also, as with any Serge Storms tale, it is most definitely fun.

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
