wikipedia says: The Sex Lives of Cannibals: Adrift in the Equatorial Pacific is a 2004 travelogue by author J. Maarten Troost describing the two years he and his girlfriend spent living on the Tarawa atoll in the Pacific island nation of Kiribati. In the book Troost describes how he came to discover that the tiny sliver of land in the South Pacific, barely known to the outside world, was not the tropical paradise he thought it would be. Nevertheless, he and his girlfriend Sylvia build a home for themselves in Kiribati, alongside a host of colorful local characters, all the while having new encounters with the bizarre and unfamiliar.
this book had me laughing nonstop during the first few chapters. the middle can be a little slow, but overall it's a really interesting read. ch-ch-check it out.
ooooooohhhh maarten troost is the best. make sure you check out his second book, getting stoned with savages - he marries sylvia and drags around washington dc for a while before fleeing back to the pacific, and i thought it was better than his first one
