At age twenty-six, Maarten Troost decided to pack up his flip-flops and move to a remote South Pacific island. He should have known better. Falling into one misadventure after another, Troost tells the laugh-out-loud true story of a harrowing and hilarious two-year odyssey in the "worst place on earth."

    Just loved this book and it had me rethinking my entire life plans. Either way worth a read and I literally laughed out loud at some point

    This was a very witty read. Mr. Troost and his girlfriend lived for two years on an island that was very primitive. The natives were friendly and helpful, unless they had too much beer. They learned how to live a very simple life under harsh conditions (extreme heat, no AC, unclean living conditions) but had many adventures and even began to enjoy their stay. The English narrator was very good.
