Do you remember the last time you read a totally compelling book? The kind that's so addictive you just can't put it down till you've finished the whole damned thing. A book where you feel like you're watching a movie as you read? Don't take my word for it check out the reader reviews (average rating 4.95) on the "Dodging Machetes" page on Amazon.
And check out the four pro reviews so far - like the reader reviews, nothing but glowing praise, not a single critical comment. Here are some highlights but go to the full reviews if you don't believe me. (Sorry, you'll have to copy and paste the links.)
"In his beautifully written memoir...he shares thoughtful insight into Fiji's exotic history and society...Off-the-charts hysterical. An unabashed, candid memoir that continually entertains and educates."
"An eye-opening story about love, loss, and discrimination...Not only is this an exciting memoir, but it's a great modern day Romeo and Juliet tale. You can tell that this book was a passionate labor of love. Each page is as addicting as the last, with great emotional elements driving the story. This is a great book for those looking for a well-rounded love story with a few laughs and a lot of heart." Five Stars.

"Lutwick's memoir is a fun romp through the tropics, featuring forbidden love and outrageous cross-cultural miscommunications. Part `South Pacific' and part adventure comedy, Lutwick's book is all heart. I cheered for him every step of the way."
--JULIA SCHEERES, Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of "Jesus Land" and "A Thousand Lives" (This review was advance praise and is complete, thus there is no link to the full review.)
"...entertaining and thought provoking...This is a fine example of what a memoir can be...episodic, fast paced chapters. Once I started, I could not stop and yet, found myself thinking about his story and its themes long after the highlighted passages began to fade. If you enjoy a roller-coaster memoir, you'll love Dodging Machetes. It will probably win awards. Five stars. "
