Author: J Maarten Troost
That’s an interesting title for a book, isn’t it? It’s sure to fire up your curiosity about the contents. Well let me put out the curiosity by saying that the book doesn’t have much to do with the title. Like my friend, who recommended it said, not sure why the author chose that title.
It’s a true account by the author of his life in one of the south pacific islands called Tarawa. That doesn’t sound interesting at all; but let me tell you the author has a great sense of humor. His narration is hilarious! Of course there are times when a few pages are serious and that’s expected because it’s a real life story and it’s about an island that doesn’t have much. I loved reading the book and would highly recommend it! There were times when I just couldn’t control my laughter!
