True story slash situation: Newly college graduated Dude goes to the South Pacific to teach on a remote island. The story ended up not being much about him teaching, just about his reactions and experiences with different people. At first this book started off super douche-y. Dude just wanted to go to the most remote place ever and experience it, but really, American-isms have reached everywhere and there is no escaping it anymore, but Dude made it work. Kind of an interesting read. I did like that by the end, Dude at least appreciated America and wasn’t all haten’ on it, like he sort of was at the beginning and I could relate to that side of it a lot.

Definitely something different, but kind of douche-y. Eh.
