What is old is new again.
There are a few things about this story that are just weird but for the case of a fictional story let's just pretend that all people speak English.
What I found fascinating is that the story of how jungle people live, their customs and relationships and how this love story is woven through all things crazy for a tropical location where a girl falls in love with a foreigner and he with her.
The narration was pretty good, certainly in my group of 90% or better. I think the narration helped keep me going when my life was a greater distraction than the volume of my MP3 player.
This is a very old book but I have never read it before. I somehow missed this tale and I really enjoyed myself. I sometimes had to go back a few minutes because my mind wandered into "how could this happen?" or "what if ____ happens next?"
I am surprised by the lower ratings here. I just like this book for all the quirkiness, the age of the events and the surprise ending. Very cool!
