This guy is funny! I really enjoyed reading this and the author's style. I also was interested in reading about life on an atol, though I am not sure I would be a good candidate. For one thing, in my middle age, I find I enjoy such things as fairly reliable electricity, parasite free water and the idea of eating meals that don't potentially kill you from the itsy bitsy bacteria and critters that live in the flesh of whatever it is you've just consumed. Also, I'm big on sanitation in regards to confining the stuff that comes from one's bum to a location that doesn't mix with your drinking water. Silly me.

But, this guy had me laughing quite a bit. Enough so that I attracted the attention of my high school aged son and his friends. No, wait. Maybe that was the title of the book that did that.

Journal Entry 3 by V-Muse from Saint Marys, Georgia USA on Monday, November 23, 2009
I found the book at the Farmer's Market. I'm not sure why I was the one that found it; possibly because it was at eye-level to me. And actually, upon looking at the picture that was taken of the book, I believe the person bent over at the far left of the picture in the red shirt (click & zoom to see clearly) is actually myself (at least my husband and I think it might possibly be).

I was honestly surprised to find a book in a tree but I'm never one to turn down a new book to read, especially one that chose to give up it's days running free to come live in my purse until it's read. I believe it'll come in handy on our drive to New York (we're military) and hopefully there it will find a new friend to take it home.

The few pages of it that I've actually read (reading is a bit hard these days with a 3yo and a newborn but nonetheless possible) have been fantastic and just my kind of humor. I can hardly wait to hit the next chapter and see what else there is for me to devour.
