" For awhile I could not figure out what all the hype was about. Finally, once I was about 100 pages into the book I found the author's rhythm and humour. It will not be on my top ten this year, but it was interesting to read about this foreign island and the i-kiribatis ways of living. I could not have lived on the island for more than a day. To be honest I never really took to the book-it was alright. I am not sure what I was expecting, but what I read is not it. "
