    After two grueling years on the island of Tarawa, Troost was in no hurry to return to the South Pacific until he began to feel remarkably out of place in modern America. He knew it was time to set off again for parts unknown. Here he tells the story of his time on Vanuatu, a cluster of islands where he struggles against typhoons, earthquakes, and giant centipedes but finds himself swept up in the laid-back, clothing-optional lifestyle of the islanders.

    What a delightful book! I had greatly enjoyed "Sex Lives of Cannibals" and hoped that this sequel would live up to my expectations. It did! Hilarious, insightful and wonderful fun! The narration is spot on, too.

    The Illuminati, an inside joke? The lunatic fringe? Or a vast conspiracy hidden for centuries, unleashing it's power on a naive, defenseless world? It was the lousy luck of Saul Goodman, a tough, streetwise New York detective, to smell the trail in a bombed-out office - the heavy case he'd always dreaded. In a breakneck race against an awesome deadline, Goodman plunges down the trail of the ultimate conspiracy as the days fall away toward Apocalypse.

    I have been a subscriber to Audible since June of 2001. I have downloaded some 225 books over the years and this is the first time that I've felt obliged to write to warn people about how bad a book is! This book was a total waste of a credit and the many hours I invested in trying to make some coherent sense out of it. The rating system required me to put in at least 1 star ... I wish I could give it less! It jumbles up characters and jumps around in time at a breakneck speed that's too erratic to keep track of. The narrators' voice characterizations are way over the top to the point of being annoying. Imagine a mix between the Geico lizard and Jessie Ventura and you get the picture. Be warned if you are sensitive to very adult situations. This book teeters on the edge of pornography and often flat out falls into the abyss. I actually did manage to finish the book but only because I just couldn't imagine any literature being this awful and hoped it would redeem itself by the end. It didn't! Let the reader beware!
