    1. Another entertaining and enjoyable book by Tim Dorsey! I am sure that he lives in a rubber room except when he is doing book tours.


    2. I listened to this as an audio book, and I really wasn't sure what to expect. I had read some of the reviews, and I didn't think I'd like it. At first, I didn't. It's silly. After a while though, I began to enjoy Tim Dorsey's particular brand of silly. I don't know why I like it, but I really do, and I would be happy to read more Tim Dorsey. Go in with no expectations, and enjoy!


    3. Considering my aversion to Hollywood and my need for a humorous book, this seemed to fit the bill nicely. At times it was extremely funny and at other times just plain silly. Regardless, it was a very light read and for the most part fun. If it wasn't for a few very over-used cliches and a really bad ending I would definitely give it another star.


    4. "The Big Bamboo" is Tim Dorsey's mockup / satire on Hollywood culture. It can be biting at times, but much of the time it feels hackneyed and annoying. I always read a couple of Dorsey novels on the beach every summer, and they are hit and miss. "The Big Bamboo" is a miss most of the time. I have read nine Dorsey novels so far, and "The Big Bamboo" is in the bottom three. However, for mindless beach reading I still think Tim Dorsey is one of your better options.For this novel Dorsey brings back [...]


    5. I had not read any of the other books in the series, so I had no idea what to expect. I read almost a full chapter before I realized, hey, this is funny! But only if you don't think about it too much. Serge Storms is a psychopath. He talks constantly, and his mind goes ping-ping-ping from one subject to another. He was raised by a team of con men, and he has branched out to include murdering people he thinks deserve it. His partner, Coleman, is continually intoxicated, and adds nothing to Serge' [...]


    6. I like Tim Dorsey's satirical novels for the most part. He takes a serial killer and turns him into a hero in Serge Storms. In a land where many unsavory things are held up as virtuous, Dorsey forces his readers to recognize the absurdity of our culture, particularly the deranged ones in the Sunshine State. For The Big Bambo he left Florida for the glitz and glamor of the gold rush we know of as Hollywood.Serge and Coleman are once again a part of the novel, but not prominently at first, and I m [...]


    7. Serge Storms and his sobriety-challenged companion Coleman travel from Florida to Hollywood in the hopes of convincing the studios to bring their movie-making machine to the Sunshine State. Of course, it's not as easy as that: dead bodies pop up along the way and the attention of various law enforcement agencies and underworld figures follows. Serge is clearly the "MacGyver" of serial killers as he can seemingly concoct a painful demise out of ordinary items with ease. Serge's beloved grandfathe [...]


    8. This was terrible. No two ways about it. The plot sounded interesting, and could have been very good. But the dialogue was atrocious with lines like "You just murdered the famous actress Alley Street" or "Look there's boy band heartthrob Jason Geddy" . And with "current" celebrity references to Cher and Cindy Crawford, along with swipes at tourists and their "instamatics", and you can see this is cutting edge stuff. I gave up before I got to the Bernie Getz and Ronald Regan jokes.


    9. While I loved the first three books in this series this is the second in a row that was just barely OK. Serge is still his manic self but the plot was even less coherent than usual and the whole Hollywood setting just set my teeth on edge. The narration of the audio by the always good George Wilson was the only reason I finished.


    10. In my opinion the book where Dorsey most perfectly blends an exquisite plot with the inspired, if morbidly black comedy of Serge and Coleman.


    11. Honestly, it's been a while since I've read it, and all of Tim Dorsey's books to me are very good, and I've read every last one, so one general old timey review.o thumbs upr all of them.


    12. Serge and Coleman take tinsel town! Lots of the same shenanigans, but on the west coast instead of Florida. Rating bumped up due to an unexpected twist at the end of the story . . . . 6 out of 10.


    13. Every time I run into Serge Storms in Tim Dorsey's books, I like him more and more. Just wished he lived in my neighborhood!Dorsey's books all crackle!


    14. Like Carl Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey has created some of the quirkiest, most absurd and funniest characters in book history. Like Hiaasen, Dorsey's writing is hilarious. Unlike Hiaasen, however, I think this one story is plenty enough for me. The book was like someone with ADHD on speed. It moved like lightning and never slowed down. Ever. Serge Storms is exhausting and I do not need to go any further. Honestly, the only reason I finished this book is that George K. Wilson is such an epic narrator. His [...]


    15. Love you Serge! Never fail to make me laugh. Think Hunter Thompson and his attorney in Fear an Loathing and you get an idea of who Serge and Coleman are. The plot is so twisted, I won't try to explain, except to say I slow read these gems and still finish in 2-3 days. Serge is like fishing or drinking Scotch you either get or you don't. If you do your going to have a ball. Enjoy


    16. Serge and Coleman take their ongoing circus of insanity to Hollywood where they wreak havoc on film industry slime balls in service of Serge's noble goal of bringing movie making back to Florida. The Big Bamboo features a more convoluted plot than most of the Serge Storms sagas while delivering the laughs and cheap thrills one expects.


    17. I didn't like this one as well as the others I have read in this series - maybe because it was Hollywood, California vs Hollywood, Florida! I am a native Californian who attended Hollywood High, so the territory was familiar to me but it just doesn't have the same quirkiness as my adopted home of Florida.




    18. Reminded me of a Carl Hiassen novel, only slightly crazier. A funny and improbable plot with twists and bizarre outcomes. Definitely entertaining, if you like that sort of thing.





    19. I was really surprised by how mediocre this book was! I thought maybe my mood just didn't match the book, so I even put it down about halfway through, read another book and then came back to it. Nope, still really disappointing. I remember really loving everything Dorsey wrote before this, so what happened? The last one I read, Torpedo Juice, was back in 2008. Have my tastes changed so much?I realize that not everything a favorite author puts out will be a gem, and I realize that they (like ever [...]


    20. Mr. Dorsey can’t always be “on,” and Torpedo Juice is a hard act to follow, so the latest falls near the bottom of my Dorsey list. If this was the first Dorsey book I’d read, would I read another? Yes. It’s just that this one falls a little flat. Maybe it’s because Dorsey isn’t at home in LA like he is in Miami, but this story was just a lot of following Serge and Coleman on their frenetic tour of LA when they weren’t doing much of anything.Because of a scam his grandfather pulle [...]


    21. "Serge is back but this time around he is traveling to the West Coast, most preferably to Hollywood to convince all the bigwigs of the movie industry to do all their filmmaking back in Florida. This new adventure Serge is going on was actually exciting to read since he hardly to never steps out of Florida. I actually learned that originally the movie industry was here in Florida. The state I live in was supposed to be the Hollywood to the stars and maybe that is why Florida has a Hollywood city [...]


    22. This is my first encounter with Dorsey, and I'm not sure what to make of it. He's kind of like Carl Hiaasen, but more over the top. This is an all-out spoof of the film industry. Most of the jokes (evil producers, vapid stars, everyone has a screenplay, endless parties that no one seems to enjoy, etc.) feel a little recycled, but the overall effect is still amusing in a madcap way.Drawn west from Florida by Serge's interest in the movie industry and his dying grandfather, Serge and stoner buddy [...]


    23. It's almost Labor Day so I thought I'd wrap up my summer reading with one more Tim Dorsey novel. Although I've been trying, I haven't been reading them in chronological order. Doesn't seem to matter though because they're all able to stand on their own. This time Serge Storms busts out of his native Florida and takes us on a trip to Los Angeles. It seems Serge is not only a Florida history buff but he's well versed in all things Hollywood as well. As always, a hilarious cast of characters keep t [...]


    24. Serge and Coleman are off to Hollywood! And readers are in for a treat as Serge pulls everyone along into the glitz, glamour, trivia, and general ridiculousness of all that glitters. Things go hilariously awry for Hollywood executives when the kidnappers they hire for a scam end up being Serge and Coleman. Yes, there are blood and explosions and plenty of tabloid headlines, but there may be some in each category you might not have expected. Really wish I was reading / listening to these in order [...]


    25. After listening to Atomic Lobster, our introduction to Tim Dorsey and to his interesting character, Serge. I was sent to the library by my daughter (don't worry she's over 18 lol) to try me find as many audiobooks as I could get via interlibrary loan. The librarian told us they would probably trickle in a few at a time but we are now in a Dorsey marathon as we got all of them in (except the first one no one had that one) and this is the book we just finished. We really liked this book and just l [...]
