The Sex Lives of Cannibals by J. Maarten Troost is a well-written travelogue, packed with self-deprecating humor and witty commentary. It offers a style similar to Bryson at his finest, and that causes the pages to fly by.
The story gives a unique perspective of island life on a Pacific atoll far removed from the news, fashions, and influences the rest of the globalized world gets inundated with.
The book shines a light on staying optimistic in the most dire circumstances, as Troost learned during his time on Tarawa. One of my most recommended in travel reading material!
