★★★★★ …….5 STAR REVIEW ON AMAZON.COM…. !!!!!….Quick and very entertaining and hilarious read about what it’s really like for an ex-pat trying to make a go of it on a certain Central American island paradise. Consider it to be kind of cliffs notes for Herman Wouk’s “Don’t Stop the Carnival.” While some people might dispute the events described in this book, and some of what you read is probably embellished in some way (and perhaps a little self-inflicted,) anyone who has been to the same place as Captain Adams will find plenty to identify with. Captain Adams pulls no punches as he tells his stories, each one more outlandish as the last, about building a wildly successful business that brings out the most despicably greedy behavior from plenty of people that should know better in this day and age of instant Internet communication and self-publishing. I’ve lived in-country for over four years, and I can assure you that things can happen as described. As a non-native, you’re everyone’s target: Everyone has their hand out, from the lowliest street criminals up to the mayor’s friends and even the police and the government. And if you don’t give willingly, they’ll take what they want, with total impunity. While the names have been changed to protect the guilty, there’s enough truth here to give pause to anyone with a dream to live the easy island life!
