Overview

Getting Stoned with Savages again reveals Troost’s wry wit and infectious joy of discovery in a hilarious account of life in the farthest reaches of the world.

After two grueling years on the island of Tarawa, Troost was in no hurry to return to the South Pacific—until he began to feel remarkably out of place in modern America—and he knew it was time to set off for parts unknown. Here he tells the story of his time on Vanuatu, a cluster of islands where he struggles against typhoons, earthquakes, and giant centipedes but finds himself swept up in the laid-back, clothing-optional lifestyle of the islanders. When his wife Sylvia gets pregnant, they decamp for slightly more civilized Fiji, a fallen paradise rife with prostitutes and government coups, where their son takes quite naturally to island living.

I guess J. Maarten Troost is probably living the dream life of many of us. His first book, The Sex Lives of Cannibals, was a riot. This, his sequel is equally well worth the read. So far, only three books have made me laugh out loud. Troost has written two of those books. If you just plain and simply need to have a good laugh at the author's expense, read his two books.

.I haven't read J. Maarten Troost's first book but I must say this is actually a great book! I am not the best of readers nor can I sit down to read for an extended amount of time. Except when I started to read this book I found myself more eager to read to find out what will happen next. Within the book he undergoes many humorous events, shares facts that are interesting about the people and the islands in the South Pacific, as well tours around and uses his words to make you think you are there with him.
