    Real Insight From A Florida Insider.

    Most books of this nature reflect a rose-colored tone usually with a hidden marketing campaign or sales pitch between the lines. This book is different, in a good way. The author provides a realistic presentation of Florida living. Bugs and all. Romantic ideals are balanced with true insight.I have vacationed in Florida for many years and have some direct experience with the beautiful side of Florida (palm trees, porpoises, gulf views) and the ugly side (seedy transients, obscene traffic, overcrowding). The author drives home the concept that vacationing and living there are two different worlds. Sometimes the author voices a personal opinion that may be unpopular or politically incorrect. It's these opinions sprinkled throughout that make this book better. It also helps people like me, who are considering a move to Florida, make more informed choices.My only complaint is that the book didn't contain enough information.

    Some good info with an overall negative bias and sloppy execution

    A quick pass by a professional editor would improve this book greatly and enhance the author's credibility. There are some real grammatical and stylistic howlers here.That said, I read with fascination Stack's vivid portrayal of the miseries of a Florida summer that send many packing back north, often at a huge loss. Alligators in your swimming pool. Snakes crawling into your pool cage to get the geckos. Heatstroke-inducing temperatures and humidity if you dare to venture outside at midday,making neighborhoods into ghost towns. Hurricane evacuations uprooting you and forcing you to join an endless exodus of stopped traffic (woe to you if you need gas; every station along the way will be out, and forget about a place to stay if you haven't made a reservation long before evacuating). Power outages in the "lightning capital of the world." Giant cockroaches.

    Very useful and objective

    0 5/5 Oliver Franklin - See all my reviews This review is from: Florida Move Guide (Paperback) Bought this for my parents who regularly go on vacation to Florida and were considering it one of a couple of places they thought they might like to retire too. They found it very useful and objective. They still haven't made up their mind but they did say it answered a lot of questions and has assisted them with their considerations. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 9, 2012

    Wierd and wonderful Florida

    It's not hard to find strangeness here.On my drive from the southeast part of Florida to the western shore of St. Pete Beach, I encountered one very odd thing after the next, in a very strange (at least to me) landscape.I'm not used to driving for hours without seeing any buildings, as a native northeasterner, for one thing. But in the vast wilderness of empty pastures that is central Florida, where there are no houses or buildings for hours, was a Wal-Mart, with a full parking lot. My mind went blank.I drove another two hours, seeing no signs of any slightest civilization, and came to---are you ready---a store selling ball gowns, with mannequins modeling them in the front window. I hadn't even seen one other car in hours. I drove another two hours, with no houses or stores or buildings, only cow pastures without cows, very rarely seeing another car, and came to a gas station, where stood---the Refrigerator! And he was signing a boy's autograph, before... 5/5 AKN - See all my reviews, October 14, 2012

    A Unique Florida Guidebook

    Certainly, you have been to Florida and the major attractions in and around Orlando. You have visited the beaches on the east and west coasts of that state. You might have been to Key West.

    More narrative style

    0 3/5 Bronx Rox! (Bronx, NY, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Backroads of Florida: Your Guide to Great Day Trips & Weekend Getaways (Paperback) This book is fine, and is lovely for what it is, but it is written in a more narrative style that is not as useful (for me, personally) as a travel guide. It does have some beautiful accompanying photographs, but the suggested routes are only typed out as directions and are not shown in a more convenient map-form. Plus the routes do not go into as much suggested detail as I would want--they feel more like short overviews with nice photos that could inspire drives to interesting places but which would ultimately require more research--or, at least, an attitude of just driving down the road and letting oneself be surprised. Perhaps this, then, is really the book's intent--to suggest and inspire but to leave the real discovery for the actual traveler? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2010

    Fun happy adventure book

    0 5/5 Karin - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wakulla: a story of adventure in Florida (Kindle Edition) This book is probably geared toward tween boys, but as a grown woman, I still enjoyed it primarily because it transported me back to a simpler time and place. The story is fast-paced with an implausibly happy ending.As for the racial undertones that the other reviewer mentioned, the book does deal with race as the main family is white and they moved to a primarily black settlement. Everyone gets along with no animosity. The "n word" appears as a black man referred to himself that way. By today's standards as far as I know that still occurs. There was also a derogatory word for a white person.My only criticism would be that the characters are a bit two dimensional as it is told in 3rd person from no one in particular's view. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 21, 2013

This review is from: Wakulla: a story of adventure in Florida (Kindle Edition) This book, written over 100 years ago, reminds me of adventure books that I read as a boy. There is plenty of action and it's a breezy type read.

    Finding Florida: Fact, subjective journalism or diatribe?

    I'll sum up my feelings on this book in three words for those who scan reviews looking for some assessment: depressing, demoralizing and disheartening.It's quite clear that native Floridian and author T.D. Allman did extensive research in his new book , but for this reader, a former Florida resident for many years, it's apparent that there should have been some fact checking done before publication. Mr. Allman is well-educated author and an accomplished journalist, with years of experience under his belt, and should be quite experienced with the checking of facts.The book starts off well, and his Prologue kicks the theme off well, with somewhat snarky mentions of Florida's unique geography, the search for gold by Spanish explorers, sinkholes, alligators and palmetto bugs (referred to as "Floridaese for... 3/5 John Williamson (NYC & Bucks County, PA) - See all my reviews, April 24, 2013

    A bleak look at Florida

    There are many facts in this book that are interesting, such as Florida is the only state with no metals and then when you think you know it all, T.D. Allman proceeds to dispel absolutely every historical fact that you have been taught about the state and its history. It is a fact that much of what is written in history textbooks is a glorification of conquering the land and the native peoples and definitely the saying that history is written by the winners is a fact. The problem with this history is that it is written in a seemingly angry, sarcastic manner and in in a way that is completely critical of everything about the state and the federal government. The only person that comes out without criticism is Claude Pepper, who definitely had his faults too.Absolutely everything that Allman writes concerns that fact that history has been fabricated by everyone, except him.The atmosphere in Florida is to blame the victim, whites can shoot, maim kill other races with no... 2/5 wogan - See all my reviews, April 18, 2013

Florida is a state in the southeastern region of the United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Florida is the 22nd most extensive, the 4th most populous, and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state capital is Tallahassee, its largest city is Jacksonville, and the Miami metropolitan area is the largest metropolitan area in the state and the southern United States. Much of Florida is situated on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is marked by a coastline, by the omnipresence of water and the threat of hurricanes. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), and is the only state to border both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is at or near sea level and its terrain is characterized by sedimentary soils. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. Its symbolic animals like the American alligator, crocodile, Florida panther and the manatee, can be found in the Everglades, one of the most famous national parks in the world.
