Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dorsey fans clamor for Serge. Dexter just can’t compete with this guy. For non-stop spy-jinks and neo-crusted cackles, head down to Miami for Tim Dorsey’s explosive Pineapple Grenade.” (Miami Herald )

“Pineapple Grenade is a topsy-turvy, slap-happy romp through Florida.” (Sun-Sentinel )

“Pineapple Grenade displays Dorsey’s talents as a comedian, a Florida historian, a political and social commentator, and a well-seasoned writer.” (Gainesville Times )

“A “guy” book, a real “man’s man” kind of novel. But kind of fun for the ladies to enjoy as well - they kind of give women an insight into the weird, wonderful way a man’s mind works when the boys are let loose with their toys.” (Ventura County Star )

“A blast… side-splitting satire.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch )

“Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit … neither Dorsey’s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle.” (Publishers Weekly )

“Hilarious” (Oklahoma City Oklahoman )

“A successful blend of high stakes thriller action a la Miami Vice with laid back beachcombing style.” (Denver Examiner )

“Up a notch … Dorsey’s 15th pits Serge against what may be the only folks as dysfunctional as he is: members of the international intelligence community.” (Kirkus Reviews )

“Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit … neither Dorsey’s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle.” (Go386.com )

“A rollicking ride” (All Good Things and More )

From the Back Cover

Miami has always set the weirdness bar, but Serge Storms is back in action and ready to pole-vault over it.

First, there's the media frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach. And yet people think it's perfectly normal to find dead sharks in the middle of downtown boulevards—or to spot black mushroom clouds behind the airport.

Could this be the work of Serge, that eccentric trivialista and one-man vigilante squad? And why is he extensively photographing foreign consulates right before the critically important Summit of the Americas comes to town? Does it have something to do with Serge's declaration to his ever-stoned sidekick, Coleman, that he's decided to become a spy?

The intelligence community isn't amused, and they want answers:

How did Serge and Coleman get so cozy with the president of a banana republic?

Who is the femme fatale with a heart of gold—and national pride?

Why is the congressman in favor of the latest oil spill?

When did everyone in the city forget how to drive?

So put on your favorite pink flamingo shirt, hit the dunes of South Beach, and find all the answers in . . . Pineapple Grenade!

Dorsey and Serge will always entertain me, I believe. The insane premeditated murders always leave me wondering how the hell Dorsey thought them up. Being a lifelong Floridian, I revel in the Florida history and locales. The banter between Serge and Coleman always makes me laugh. Pineapple Grenade was no different. I flew through the book in a mere couple of days. Somehow Dorsey takes the same 'ole story and makes it very interesting. If you are a Dorsey fan you know, basically, what is going to happen but, somehow it is different every time. I love the ride.

In this one, Serge decides he is going to both clean up Miami of tourist crime and become a spy for whatever country takes him first. Super Serge made me laugh out loud and I was almost brought to tears by the ending.

I loved it.

And is there a better "add absolutely nothing to the story" than Johnny Vegas? I think not!

Pineapple Grenade by Tim Dorsey is the newest addition in the continuous adventures of Serge Storms, the internationally acclaimed Florida Folklorists and occasional serial killer. The good guys and the bad guys of the Black Ops variety are busily confusing each other as usual, when Serge gets the itch to try his hand at being a spy. Ever faithful, Coleman stumbles along at his side and even picks up some party pals who learn together that straight razors are not the best thing to use in crowded spaces for cutting stuff. Along the way Serge encounters a gorgeous lady spy, but not as much history as Serge fans are used too, though Surge on a grounded airplane is almost as much fun as Surge on a train.
If your world is making you angry, this as any of the other Serge stories will quickly reboot your sense of humor, as Surge fights to bring order to our totally whacked out world with his usual OCD brilliance. I really enjoyed the realism of the Rebel's depiction and would have liked to see more of them.

I love reading Tim Dorsey novels, but I really struggle to review them. How do you describe a story where a murder victim is found with no internal organs, fishermen are wandering around Miami with a dead shark, one of the main characters is using a prosthetic leg found on the beach as a bong, and two vigilantes dressed as superheros are ridding the world (or at least Miami) of car-jackers? And that's in the first 15 minutes of reading... Dorsey's latest, Pineapple Grenade, follows the crazy adventures of Serge Storms and his continually stoned sidekick, Coleman, as Serge starts his new life as an international spy-for-hire.

In the most current adventure, Serge gets it in his head that he's going to become a spy. Not that anyone has hired him, mind you. He just starts "spying" in obvious ways to catch the attention of various CIA groups and different embassies. His strange (but normal to him) activities stand out because a major summit of Latin American leaders is about to happen in Miami, and everyone has security on their mind. So while everyone has Serge on their radar, no one knows exactly who he's working for. Is he part of the network of one of the small countries? Is he being run by one of the CIA groups competing with each other for territory? Even the different groups themselves don't know if Serge is working for them as part of a power play by opposition within their ranks. There's a good chance that Serge doesn't even know who he might be assisting.

And then there's Serge's sidekick, Coleman... who is blissfully stoned and agreeable to anything... so long as there's more beer or weed coming.

For me, Dorsey novels are an escape into a world of bizarre entertainment while getting some not-so-subtle commentary on how people in Florida roll.

I'm not sure what the other reviewers are going on about. This book isn't any more disjointed than any of his other Serge and Coleman outings. If anything it's more focused since all the action happens in a single location-- Miami. The spy flair is added bonus.

If you've enjoyed the previous books, I think you'll enjoy this one just fine.

Pineapple Grenade IS explosive and it will "blow you away !" I have read EVERY one of Tim Dorseys' books and those who have given it a "PG" (Pretty Good) rating are waaaay off the mark. Pineapple Grenade is Dorsey at the top of is writing game. Serge and Coleman NEVER dissappoint and neither do the wild and crazy cast of characters...... IF you do not buy and read "Pineapple" you are missing a "sweet treat" for your senses ! Tim and "the boys " are at their best. If you miss reading this one ....you deserve to be "killed off !" The twists and turns keep you not only "on your toes" but running to keep up with all the action. A must read for the die hard Dorsey fan and an exciting surprise for a first time reader of Florida fiction. Action and adventure from start to finish. Just try to toss the Grenade aside ! Two thumbs up and five stars !!

I got my copy of Pineapple Grenade as soon as it was released in January but held off reading it for a little while because I wouldn't get a new Serge Storm tale for another year. The book didn't disappoint.Serge(the hero/quasi serial killer in all of Dorsey's books) is his usual self. Five miles a minute in five differnt directions at once. You have to keep up or you get lost.He has a deep love of Florida and wants to preserve as much of it's history as he can.So if you are visiting Florida remember be polite you never know who is watching. Serge takes on corrupt politicians ,and corrupt international corporations in this latest novel. It may have cost him his true love(beside Florida)however. Another great novel from Tim Dorsey. I can't wait until next January . Join Serge and discover your love of Florida history,trivia,and lots of mayhem
