Content is very interesting - Narration HORRIBLE

I found the information very interesting and educational. The author touches on many aspects of determining the whats, wheres, whys, whens and hows of relocating to Hawaii. My wife and I recently purchased a property (though not on the author's favorite island of Oahu) in Kailua Kona on the Big Island. It was interesting to relive some of the same issues and questions that the author experienced.

HOWEVER, most books that I "read" are via Audible (audio book) due to a long commute to and from my job. The narrator for this book REALLY needs an education on how to pronounce Hawaiian names and places. There are so many mis-pronunciations of Hawaiian place names, that I had to rewind and listen again more than once, to try to figure out where he was talking about. Kauai, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hilo, Haleakala....the list goes on.

The author REALLY needs to go back and review this with the narrator, as this is an embarrassment to the book.

Why would you narrate a book about Hawaii and not know how to pronounce Hawaiian names???????????????????

Exactly What I Was Looking For...

Having recently read about BRRRR real estate investing in another audiobook and having obsessively watched the series Hawaii Life on HGTV, I was looking for a much more detailed resource that could merge the 2. Buying Paradise was exactly what I hoped to find.

The content was great- neither too technical (not too much cryptic real-estate jargon, etc.) nor too simple (plenty of details that elevated my understanding of owning a home in this unique place). There was even an introductory section that helped to explain what makes Hawaii special and how to overcome the perception that it is too expensive to live there.

There are 2 things that could have made it even better (the reasons I gave only 4 stars for story). First, there are lots of lists with hyperlinks that the narrator reads out loud. There are LOTS of them. It gets repetitive and tedious. It would be good to find a way to trim those down or just reference a web resource guide once where all of these can be found. Second, Oahu is great but we are interested in the other islands as well. It might be good to add chapters or a supplement to cover the Big Island, Maui, Kauai, Lanai, etc.

We're heading to the Big Island soon and expect to put what we learned from this book to good use immediately.

Note that I emailed George to thank him for writing the book and he introduced us to a Big Island realtor. George is an outstanding advocate for Hawaii and a true professional in real estate.
