Didn’t Like It
“A friend recommended this book and said it was one of the best in the Doc Ford series. If this is one of the best, I'll pass. I never got invested in the storyline and I never connected with the characters.”see full review » see other reviews »
“Great light who dunnit. Takes place on Gulf coast of southwestern FL, perfect reading while visiting P &A. Also has a scientific thread. I'll search more in the series.”Mary James wrote this review Wednesday, March 13, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Each book from this series is a different adventure, which I'm sure is what Randy Wayne White is shooting for. It makes each one a stand-alone even if it is a series...some start out slowly and build up to high tempo and others start off with a big bang and keep it going. This is one of those big bang start and kept on banging at the cranium.
In among the action is the first time Doc Ford has some leftover fish baked up by Tomlinson and Tomlinson used his creative side to add some 'shrooms...the magic kind....and Ford has himself a little unplanned 'trip'. Tomlinson assures him that he is there for the duration to help him through the journey. This was a superb break in the thrill mode.
I think Ron McLarty is my favorite of the narrators for this series. He gives my favorite character, Tomlinson, the best voice. Kind of a stoner dude hippie feller and I love him so.
Four stoner 'shroom action in the middle beans.....
“Randy Wayne White is just so fine a storyteller. I reward myself with his writing just for the pure fun of it. Not that it's not educational, too. White knows south west Florida and the keys like Louis L'Amour knew the west, or like Larry McMurtry knows Texas. And since I so love the keys and the Wilderness Waterway, I love to go there with Randy Wayne White and his crazy characters and Doc Ford piloting the boat. Long Live RWW!”Steve Leveen wrote this review Sunday, February 1, 2009. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Another reason I love Randy Wayne White’s novels is that the bad guys usually get what they deserve. It is done quietly and without fanfare, but those that enjoy the pain and suffering of others end up quite dead.
Ten Thousand Islands bring to life a murder ruled suicide fifteen years ago. The psychopath murderer is running for political office. (Not too hard to imagine for me.) Unafraid of anything and believing wealth allows you to do anything, the psychopath and equally psychopathic father aren’t afraid. What they want they get regardless the cost, simply because they want it. (More fact in fiction.)
The twist in the novel is a play on the supernatural. Is it a soul mate? Does love truly never die? Ancient Calusa, powerful symbols, and black magic are intertwined in this interesting and unique story.
I love the ending. An Eye for an Eye!
