    But as time went on, he realized he felt remarkably out of place among the trappings of twenty-first-century America. But from the sounds of other reviews, this books is just an appetizer to his first book which some say was his masterpiece. I just wish it was longer and that he would hurry up and write another book!!! Maarten Troost was originally published in Troost himself points out why.

    Entertaining for sure. This really means that Troost gets to live in a nice house while he gets drunk on kava; dodges "a long inferno of magma and a cascade of lava bombs" at the "world's most accessible volcano"; Getting Stoned With Savages book checks out the "calcified" leftovers from one of Vanuatu's not-so-ancient traditions, cannibalism. The result is that it sedates and calms the consumer while still leaving behind mental clarity. Kava, a drink that is traditionally created by young island boys masticating foots from the kava plant to grind it up and mix is with saliva. After two grueling years on the island of Tarawa, battling feral dogs, machete-wielding neighbors, and a lack of beer on a daily basis, Maarten Troost was in no hurry to return to the South Pacific. The audio book is very well read.

    This is an engaging book which provides a witty, funny, light, read. Troost himself points out why. It is hilarious, from beginning to end. Evidently drugs as a book subject is more acceptable than sex when given as a gift. When he found himself holding down a job?

A display of the buttocks speaks a universal language. In some places women were allowed to join in certain ceremonies with the men, in other places they never could.

When he found himself holding down a job--one that might possibly lead to a career--he knew it was time for he and his wife, Sylvia, to repack their bags and set off for parts unknown.

About halfway through the book, Sylvia becomes pregnant and not wanting to give birth to their first born on Vanatu, they instead opted for Fiji which had just recently overthrown a political coup attempt. They survived cyclones and mudslides, but still remained to have their first child on a remote island.

Just Me gave me that raised eyebrow look when she saw the titles of Troost's books on my list, but she did find this copy for me.
