Publisher's Summary

”A man oughta be able to walk home drunk without some damn fool running him off the road, you know.”

The hub of life in the islands is the local rum shop and though life in the Windward Islands in the Caribbean might be a little different, move at a slower pace than in other places, the problems of life are pretty much the same.

Island Style

I liked this little short piece, it's only 14 minutes long...I liked some of the pigeon lingo, like baboose, ganja, overall this was a fun story, the narrator did a fine job....I received this audiobook free and this is my voluntary unbiased review.

Interesting Short Snippet

Not sure what to think of this short snippet. Please be sure to note that this selection is only 15 minutes long. The tale consists of odd and brief conversations of patrons of a rum shop set in the Caribbean. The narrator does an excellent job in depicting the inflection and cadence of their musical language. I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy.

Even though it's short, it's more like a chapter

I'm not sure what I expected seeing this is only 15 minutes long but I've read short stories that even though they were short, they at least were a story. This didn't really do anything. I felt it was more a chapter from an upcoming book like an excerpt than any story. I don't know but I would waste my money or credits on it.
