in 1950, a young doctor named Norton Perina signs up to accompany an anthropological expedition to a remote Micronesian island in search of a rumoured lost tribe. The expedition is a success, locating not only the tribe but also a group of forest dwellers that the scientists dub "The Dreamers", a roaming band of fantastically long-lived but progressively more senile islanders. Perina suspects that the source of their longevity is a hard-to-find turtle; unable to resist the possibility of eternal life, he kills one and smuggles some of its meat back to the States. He proves his thesis, earning worldwide fame and a Nobel Prize, but he soon discovers that the turtle's miraculous property comes at a terrible prize.

Journal Entry 2 by TrueBerenjena at Wageningen, Gelderland Netherlands on Tuesday, June 30, 2020
This book leaves you with a weird feeling in your body. It is written from the perspective of the abuser, and at points, you are sucked to the temptation of deattaching yourself from the situation to avoid the feeling that it gives you.
I loved more the way it's written than the story, which I think was the intention of the writer in this case. There is no mystery to be solved, you already know what happens since the beginning. However, in my opinion, that doesn't make the book less interesting.
