No, no, no, no no....Your reading list will keep me very busy this summer.
BOTUSNo, no, no, no no....
Read something fun and mindless like Stevenson's Treasure Island or Melville's Typee. Typee has cannibals! Both good reads from good writers.
Thinking about the Fitzgerald quote above: “They were careless people,” he laments. “They smashed up things ... and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness.” It makes me think of a current person who thinks he can buy off people (or prostitutes) with his vast money.
Spent a amazing Christmas In Bora Bora. Beautiful people. All the friendly islands definitely worth the visit. These islands are unfortunately feeling the ravages of rising sea levels. Amazing competitive outrigger culture.Take a break, Karl Marx , and enjoy a beautiful tale of a Polynesian paradise, its inhabitants (the cannibals!), and Melville’s own accounts of his encounter with the infamous Typee tribe after jumping ship. Part autobiography, part fiction, it’s a lovely read and sure to get your mind off the woes of our current climate..
