Review

'I had a great time reading Key Weird.' --Randy Wayne White- bestselling author of Florida Fiction

'I laughed my chacmools off.' - Christopher Moore- - bestselling author of A Dirty Job and You Suck

About the Author

Robert Tacoma lives in central Florida and is the author of Key Weird, Key Weirder, Key Witch, and Key Manatee.

More About the Author

Raised by skydivers, Robert Tacoma spent his formative years in central Florida public schools during the week and at various jump centers across the state on weekends. He also learned to fish the waters in and around the Sunshine State, so you could say he grew to appreciate Florida from the air and water as well as the land.
Though he has never been to Texas, Robert can usually find it on a map. He currently lives in north central Florida and all his pets have run away.

Customer Reviews

A great, fun read.
Shayne Waters
Will keep you involved until the end, then you'll want to read the second book in the series.
Danyele Graham
The characters in this book: boring, the plot in this book, even more boring.

This was a fun read. It could easily be finished in an afternoon or two on the beach.

However, I don't think Christopher Moore, Jimmy Buffett, or Carl Hiassen or, for that matter, Tim Dorsey needs to feel particulary threatened, as Mr. Andlu suggests, who has reviews for all of Tacoma's books and has given all five stars. One has to wonder if Mr. Andlu was writing reviews simply to promote Tacoma's books.

Buy it, enjoy it. But, don't expect the depth of plot or character development you would get with Carl Hiassen or Tim Dorsey.

I will probably buy more of Tacoma's series. But, given that they are trade paperbacks and relatively expensive new, I will probably wait until they are available for little cost as used books and reserve my new-book budget for Hiassen and Dorsey.

Taco Bob's first adventure (and I truly hope there are more) had me smiling and snickering from the beginning. Set mainly in the Florida Keys, this story takes on the laid back Key West style with a most humorous tale of good guys, dumb guys and dumb bad guys. Add to the mix treasure with mysterious powers, indigenous wisdom, awesome Key West characters, and some not so bright ones along the trail. A great mix indeed and the good souled Taco Bob sails through all adventures with charm.

Very funny and I'm so glad I spent my day with Taco Bob.

So, where does one go to find information about cat juggling, conch shell economics, lucid dreaming, buried treasure, and the ultimate fishing experience? If your out of work possum farmer Taco Bob you head to Key West.

Taco Bob's ultimate laid back demeanor makes him a perfect denizen and hero for Robert Tacoma's "Key Weird". His quest for the ultimate fishing experience and the adventures he has during it had me laughing out loud. Tacoma's matter of fact writing style and strange, imaginative characters lends substance and humor to this light hearted book. It brought many a smile to my face.

If you purchase just one book about lucid dream inducing chacmools this year then make sure it is Robert Tacoma's "Key Weird".

What's a possum rancher do when the possums are all gone? You get moving. And when the two dumbest criminals to ever grace the penal system are looking to kill you? You keep going. All the way to the southern most point in the continental U.S.: Key West Florida. Then the fun starts.

This is an easy going story about an easy going guy. It's a fun read that fits in well among the quirky South Florida tales of Hiaasen. And fans of the genre will notice some tributes that will leave you chuckling. Chris Moore is right, you will laugh your chacmools off. A great, fun read. If this is lucid dreaming, I better start counting fingers.

Format: Paperback
When laid back possum rancher Taco Bob has a run of bad luck, he leaves the ranch and heads to Key West - which is affectionately nicknamed "Key Weird." All he wants is to get some good fishing in, but he has to beware of the bumbling Dalton Gang and several other curves life seems to keep throwing his way.

Also arriving in town is a beautiful cult leader in search of golden chacmools, and she's willing to do whatever it takes to find them. But her less-than-competent help would rather drool over the ladies in the local topless bar than help her find them.

Fans of Christopher Moore and Jimmy Buffett will be sure to get lots of laughs out of "Key Weird". I'm eager to read more of Taco Bob's adventures!

We met Mr Tacoma at a book signing during the Manatee Festival in Homassassa Springs a few months ago. I must tell you we bought the book just because we enjoyed the conversation with Mr. Tacoma so much. Had I known it was as good as it is, I would have bought a dozen for friends and family. If you like Carl Hiassen or Tim Dorsey, you will enjoy Key Weird as well. The "governor" even has a cameo in it.

It was so fun I bought and read Key Weird, thoroughly enjoyed it too and now I can't wait to get my copy of Key Witch.

This book is a fast and great read! The story really moves and keeps the reader involved and turning pages. You just have to see what is going to happen to Taco Bob next. Do yourself a favor and take a trip to Key Weird. You'll be glad you did.

This is a very engaging tale, that moves quickly and has the added benefit of making you laugh out loud at regular intervals. A lot of fun, and a perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon.
