The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

In the spirit of Mindy Kaling, Kelly Oxford, and Sarah Silverman, a compulsively listenable and outrageously funny memoir of growing up as a fish out of water, finding your voice, and embracing your inner crazy person from popular actress, writer, and comedian Bonnie McFarlane.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Needs more energy... informative and educational but sterile... makes me drowsy.

Would you be willing to try another book from Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins ? Why or why not?

Not until I get older. (I'm 40)

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Likes: Clear and understandable. Dislikes: dry, without any emotion.

Could you see What Every BODY Is Saying being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

not unless TV gets much much worse than it already is.
