Book Description

Dan finds himself to be overwhelmed with love over Fiona, a beautiful woman who seemed to just appear out of thin air in Kediri, Indonesia, but he soon discovers that just because two people are the only two foreigners in town who speak the same language, it doesn’t mean that they are destined to fall in love.

However, Dan can’t help feeling that he must do everything that he can to try and win her heart, even though he knows next to nothing about her. With the knowledge that, while overseas, you can be anyone you want to be, Dan tries to use the idea of becoming mysterious and fascinating over his decision to move to Indonesia for a low paying teaching job to try and grab Fiona’s attention. At the same time, he begins to wonder about what it was that he came to Indonesia to do in the first place.

“I was in Indonesia for other matters, for discovering knew things about myself; hell, I didn’t even feel like an adult, or a whole person for that matter, like a fragmented person who didn’t quite stick up to his own desires and walked around in a cloud with fractures and cracks breaking off at different points along his body. However, that was the old me, and because I was far away from the life that I once knew I could be anybody I wanted to. I could start fresh and revamp my entire personality. No more social anxieties and a supreme lack of confidence when approaching girls. I had seen enough movies where the guy makes this fantastic speech or one-liner that girl’s just couldn’t resist, and I told myself that I would be that guy.”

Caught between this idea of being spectacular and being himself, Dan begins to grow closer to Fiona, although he is completely unable to bring himself to “make the first move”, and thus their relationship hangs over beer, cigarettes, and conversation. He is torn between how he feels, what he wants, and what in the world he will do to show Fiona that he can’t get her out of his mind. Talking to her would be just too easy.

This was as good as part 1. Very interesting and well written. At times it was pretty funny. I can't wait for the next part to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Animating and arousing story that is hard to put down! December 3, 2012

This short book tells of Dan's funny and real experience while teaching and surviving in a small city in Indonesia. If you previously lived abroad in a culture totally different from home, his writing style will make you feel like you are walking along with him. Plus, who doesn't dream of finding love while abroad? I look forward to the other parts of the book coming out!
