    "En route to polite exile in the Galapagos Islands (field work, to quote the dean of my university), I have found myself marooned on a deserted tropical paradise. Deserted, that is, except for my savior, a mysterious American called Marcus. He is an inventor and the proof of his greatness is the marvelous new clockwork arm he has created to replace the unsightly one that was ruined in my shipboard mishap."

    Overall

    I wanted to like this book but couldn't. Suspending belief is one thing in fiction but incredulous is another. The main character is saved on a deserted island but the Robinson Crusoe not only has everything including a workshop, sheet metal from trading a few duck eggs with a passing ship but manages to construct a new bionic prosthetic for the hero in the 3 days he's been unconscious.
    The speed with which the two characters fall in love added to the improbable speed of the homosexual awakening just adds to the sense that this is a book designed for early teenagers if it were not for the erotic content.
