I’m sorry, Sarah, but I think our (one sided) love affair is over. While I’ve loved your other books, this one just didn’t work for me. It was, to be blunt, boring. Not boring all the time, but boring enough that I might’ve tuned out a few times while listening to the audio. Admittedly, that’s my fault. You see, I’ve always found missionaries to be both yawn-inducing and aggravating (I’m not really into spreading the word of a guy I don’t believe in). So I really should have known better. I guess I didn’t realize just how much of the missionaries positions (sorry, I couldn’t resist) you talked about. I was expecting more Hawaiian history, and less America takes over Hawaii history. Maybe if I’d listened to this while I was actually in Hawaii?
Anyways. Dude, don’t think this means I won’t read anymore of your books, because I totally will. Read them, that is. Maybe not listen to, though. I think I’ve listened to enough by now. Your distinctive voice is forever imbedded in my brain.
Also, I keep wanting to call your book Unfamiliar Fishies. I’m sorry.
