    3. I really wanted to like this than I did There aren t many prolific Pacific nation authors, and I really wanted to enjoy a unique perspective.I found nearly all of the short stories to be completely forgettable and uninteresting The title story was the longest and by far my favorite, so maybe I ll give one of his novels a shot sometime down the road.

    4. Revisting this book this year I would recommend you read it if you havn t read any of Albert Wendt s novels You re get a taste of story telling and way he writes.Listening to him at Pasi tutorial at Vic got me inspired to explore fables of the polynesia especially the untold.
