The Sex Lives of Cannibals: Adrift in the Equatorial Pacific

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: J. Maarten Troost

Narrated By: Simon Vance

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: January 2006

Duration: 8 hours 38 minutes

Summary:

At age twenty-six, Maarten Troost decided to pack up his flip-flops and move to a remote South Pacific island. The idea of dropping everything and moving to the ends of the earth was irresistibly romantic. He should have known better.
This book tells the hilarious story of what happens when he discovers that the island is not the paradise he dreamed of. Falling into one amusing misadventure after another, Troost struggles with stifling heat, deadly bacteria, and polluted seas in a country where the only music to be heard is “La Macarena.” He and his girlfriend, Sylvia, contend with incompetent officials, alarmingly large critters, a paucity of food options (including the Great Beer Crisis), and bizarre local characters, including “Half-Dead Fred” and the so-called Poet Laureate of Tarawa, a British drunkard who’s never written a poem in his life.

    Just loved this book and it had me rethinking my entire life plans. Either way worth a read and I literally laughed out loud at some point

    This was a very witty read. Mr. Troost and his girlfriend lived for two years on an island that was very primitive. The natives were friendly and helpful, unless they had too much beer. They learned how to live a very simple life under harsh conditions (extreme heat, no AC, unclean living conditions) but had many adventures and even began to enjoy their stay. The English narrator was very good.
