A great new review of "Island in the Clouds" on Goodreads!
I loved this book. It was highly entertaining, yet at the same time shockingly honest about life in "paradise." That really appealed to me because I spend a lot of time in the Caribbean and understand the misconceptions most people hold about Caribbean culture. Written in the first person, the author was able to convey the main character's attitudes and feelings without inconveniencing the reader. The writing was clear and effective and the characters were eminently lovable. I highly recommend it.
