As an insider's outsider, I found myself feeling many of the contradictory, paradoxical emotions that the novel's speaker feels--defensive, apologetic, embarrassed, disturbed, forgiving, amused, uplifted, and sublime all at the same time--about how horribly and beautifully insane, or how insanely horrible and beautiful, our islands are. The speaker, Nina, puts it best upon returning to New York City after a year in "Miramar", when Nina's friends (don't quite) want to know more about the island, to which Nina tells herself, "They do not want to hear confusing stories about parasailing accidents and the CIA's deep involvement with Russian refugees. I can't tell them about George and Brad, Robin and the judges and the secretaries and the CIA, Erika and Rory, unpaved roads, strip clubs, cockfights, karaoke with the mafia, parasailing ropes snapping, fecal lagoons, missing Max [her ex-lover] and bitter haoles and the cows at the court and how delicious mangoes are when you get them from the right store.Read more ›

Painfully bad. Was shocked to see any positive reviews. She basically whines her way through the book pining away for some loser ex-boyfriend. Read morePublished on July 9, 2014 by Bookfan
I loved this book!
First of all, I totally dug Arin Greenwood's writing style. It was truly like listening to the voice inside a woman's head. Read more
Hysterical. Scenes ring true emotionally, although most of us are neither as courageous or as funny as the author. I can't wait for her next book.Published on May 18, 2011 by J. Hill

I laughed out loud (embarrassing my family on the subway). I wept out loud (embarrassing myself.)
I love this book.
