What a wonderful funny entertaining laugh out loud book.
I have lived in the Caribbean for years and I always recommend "Don't Stop the Carnival" for anyone wanting to move to the islands.
Now I have a new book to recommend and, unlike "Don't Stop the Carnival", it's a true story.
Yes, it's hard to believe all the things Mr. Lovelace writes about could have really happened but I am sure they did, and life is still much like that on the island where I live, even though we are more modernized now.
I could probably write my own book about life in the Caribbean, but Mr. Lovelace is a funnier,wittier writer than I could ever be.
His lessons at the end of each chapter are hysterical. I particularly like
"In the Caribbean, all is not what it appears to be."
"If you choose to live and work in the Caribbean, you must accept that more than any place else, "whatever can go wrong, will go wrong'."
"If you intend to live in the islands, you better have a good sense of humor."
Get this book and read it! You won't be sorry!
For folks not from Salt Cay or have never been there it will be a funny glimpse into a little island in the Turks and Caicos where we now have phones, electricty all the time and a few cars...but time still stands still.
There are some criticisms of course. Most notably, I wrote the letter from Colonel Smthye not Nick. I was quite proud of that creation and am happy to see it in print but would like the record corrected. He did the phone call but I wrote the letter and bore the wrath of Caroline.
Also, I think Edwin and Joe deserve their own chapter. Those two beautiful guys were the "Immortals" of the Windmills without which the place would definitely not be the same.
This is a good book and I think a better edited edition with some photos, recipes etc... is called for.
