The description on the flap of this book is one of the best I've seen:
WE DON'T WANT TO TELL YOU TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS BOOK.
It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it.
Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this:
It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific.
The story starts there, but the book doesn't.
And it's what happens afterward that is most important.
Once you have read it, you'll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.
Please, for the love of all things, READ this book!! There isn't a thing about it that isn't amazing. The characters, the pace, the language, the story. It felt almost hot in my hands, as if it was burning itself into me.
You've heard the term "book hangover" before. I've got a severe case. The people from this tale are going to be with me for a long while.
