rating: 4 of 5 stars
After graduating from college the author spends some time looking for work but mostly lazes around wondering what to do next. Then his girlfriend gets a job in the tiny Pacific island country of Kiribati and he goes with her. This is the story of their two years living on an atoll where there are/is no: garbage dumps, toilets, rain, air conditioning, reliable transportation or diversity in food sources. But there are/is quite a lot of: sharks, feral dogs, intestinal parasites, insects, shit, suffocating heat, vast cultural differences and wonderfully interesting people. Amazing.
