Alas !! Despite the title, you don't get to know a great deal about the sex lives of cannibals ..... :-)
However, to my most pleasant surprise, it is a wonderful book! It is much more about the lives of dwellers on small atolls lost in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, hundreds of miles from anywhere. Not a place I would be in a hurry to go to (an atoll), not even for a short holiday ... The book is full of humour and very educational at the same time. The author tells us in detail what it was like to live on the small island of Tarawa (in the Republic of Kiribati) - where he lived for two years - Amongst a miriad of fascinating experiences, he also witnessed the tragic consequences suffered by many of these atolls because of the ongoing nuclear tests carried out by the world's super powers. The USA alone has been conducting tests in the Pacific since the 1950s ... and China has more recently also set foot in this part of the world reaping untold destruction and pollution. What a tragedy ... and what hypocricy lies underneath all the claims for a cleaner, healthier, greener planet....Continua
I enjoyed this book, the style of the author and the story are fun and exciting, his adventures are worthy of other famous humoristic authors.
Great book, will read it again some day.
