Such an entertaining trip thru the tropics! I love his writing style and his take on everyday experiences.

Funny, rollicking trip through the tropics. Reading Troost is like traveling with a best friend. His adventures and misadventures are funny and sometimes dangerous but always compellingly human. Troost is the nomad we all would like to be.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I was disappointed that it ended and I am looking forward to reading The Sex Lives of Cannibals and Headhunters at my Door.

Getting Stoned With Savages by J. Maarten Troost is one man’s view of life on the islands of Vanuatu and Fiji. Written in the form of a journal, I found this a rather ho-hum read. The author tries to be amusing, but the key word here is try. I found that instead of being funny, it felt a little forced.

I felt this book with it’s descriptions of cyclones, giant centipedes and sharks needed a little more on the plus side in order to fully describe these exotic places. Getting Stoned With Savages was an ok read, but left me feeling that I still know very little about islands.
