Format: Paperback
I've never ventured into the genre of travel narratives before, and this book was a wonderful start. I just couldn't put the book down. Mr. Troost discuss his 2 years in Kiribati with his girlfriend, Sylvia, as they adjust to a life vastly different from that in the US. Each chapter provides a humourous anecdote about their experiences, from interactions with natives to near death experiences at sea. What really makes the book wonderful is that you really feel like you get to know the author, and you feel like you are experiencing the torments and tribulations of island life with him. I do hope he writes more!

I loved this book! The author has a very original humor and the book is extremely easy to read and very very amusing. Congratulations Maarten Troost. I also like the end of the book a lot and luckily he saves the country of Kiribati telling the reader that the outer islands are not like Tarawa...The only thing i didn't like was the phrase in the back cover that suggests that "Kiribati is possibly the worst place on earth" . Very offensive for the people of Kiribati. I sort of think that this phrase was not written by the author. The book is a masterpiece, an absolute Must-read

Thoroughly enjoyed this disrespectful saga of moving and then living in the Gilbert Islands. Love the sense of humour which is needed in Tarawa. If you want a chuckle, don't we all, of a modern day graduate from Washington, D.C., go along with him trying to swim in the lagoon, get water, get beer, it is really a hoot. I can just see Maarten riding his bicyle through Tarawa with a fresh fish hanging from his hand, followed by every mutt on the island trying to get it away from him. Enjoyed it. Will be reading his next book about Fiji. Keep on writing Maarten Troost.

I just finished reading this book and could not put it down. I wanted to tear through it and was sad when it was done! It made me want to run to an island to live....and made me never want to go near one! Very funny and well written.

This book is an excellent read, especially on the beach or by the pool. I could'nt put it down. Troost takes you on a journey of delight and terror all with a great sense of humour. His 2 years on this tropical island of Kiribati in the middle of the South Pacific was far from tropical paradise with laugh out loud explanations of events. Cheers to Maarten!!

This was a really funny, heart-warming book. The author has a very glib sense of humor and I can only hope we'll be reading more from him soon. Well done.
