    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

    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. And more.The best way to enjoy Florida, according to Stack, is to become a "sixer" - 6 months in Florida... 3/5 Mimijo "MJH" (TN USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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

    Life's a Beach Then You Die

    Max Fried is a retired computer forensic examiner who devotes his time to swimming and drinking in the hot Florida sun. When a lawyer persuades Max to find a deceased client's estate assets, Max takes the job, thinking it will be easy money. As soon as Max gets the dead mans laptop home he thinks his job is soon finished. He finds little to be concerned about but he stores a copy of the information on his new iPod. Max doesn't know the computer contains clues to a 20 year-old murder and the thief doesn't know Max stored a copy of the stolen computer on his iPod. Max comes home to find his house trashed and both his computer and the laptop gone. He calls Ed to tell him this latest news and try to figure out what's going on. His wife is scared to stay, and goes away until the house is again safe. I really did enjoy this story, but I had more fun with the lack of editing. "Max lied on his bed." "Max turned up his color," and many more. It didn't really take away from the story but it... 3/5 mysin (Anywhere, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Cute read

    0 4/5 Philip Nork "author and reviewer" (Las Vegas Nevada) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Life's a Beach Then You Die (Max Fried Mystery Book 1) (Kindle Edition) Life's a Beach Then You Die is a nice little read. You start out by meeting Max and Mariel, recent retirees to New Smyrna Beach, Florida. A nice couple who enjoys the weather in Florida, the beach near their house, the bars they frequent and not wearing any underwear. (You'll have to read the book to understand.)When Jack, the bartender at Bobbi and Jack's Beachside Patio introduces Max to Ed, a lawyer whose client has just died, the fun begins. Ed wants Max to help find out financial information from a laptop. Being a retired computer forensics examiner, at first Max says no and then reconsiders.The rest of the book centers on what is on the computer ... and who stole it from Max. People listed on the computer start dying and Max may be next.The plot was good; it kept my interest from start to finish. I think it could have delved a little deeper, but this seems to be a humorous mystery, not a serious one.I'd read this author again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 28, 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.
