Autobiography

"Another good book from J. Maarten Troost. As always, he writes with humor and straight from the shoulder about the expected paradise - which is no paradise any more once you take a closer look. The island Kiribati itself is beautiful, but at second glance there are some big surprises you would never think of. He describes the beauty and the sad in a way that makes you laugh and gets you thinking at the same time."
