      Like the protagonist, I am an American woman living and working on an island in the South Pacific. While this is a novel, she really captured the spirit of the joys and frustrations of living on island time in a foreign culture. Probably the best small press/self published (?)debut novel I've ever read. Read this before you take that expat job!

      This was a fun, entertaining read. The author's depiction of the absurdity of the political/social life on the island is what sold me. I haven't read anything else like it.

      Check out more reviews at bookstotheskyI loved this book!First of all, I totally dug Arin Greenwood's writing style. It was truly like listening to the voice inside a woman's head.Nina not only loses her job, but then discovers her long time boyfriend has been cheating on her. She realizes she's going to have to make some major changes in her life, since she no longer has a job nor a place to live. She ends up taking a job on the tropical island of Miramar, where life changes drastically for her [...]

      SPOILER ALERT:I enjoyed this book very much despite an unlikable protagonist, who I felt sympathy for at first, but who wound up victimizing someone who was nothing but kind to her. It was hilarious to see her get mad at Brad for sleeping with another woman when she was doing the same thing to poor George, as she said, "sometimes twice a day." But other than that the story was very exotic, intriguing and a page turner. The world of Miramar beckons a truly wacky bunch of Americans with bad haircu [...]

      2.5 stars. There were some interesting and entertaining aspects of this book -- the zany characters and anecdotes about the way things function (or don't function) on the island -- and occasional moments of great humor, but I had a hard time sympathizing with the narrator and think it was due to the writing style. I get that the character was depressed, but I never really felt it. Same thing when she was really happy or really freaked out. I think this book could have used more incubation time a [...]

      Arin's book is hilarious and so much fun to read. A 20-something lawyer who is fired from her corporate law firm job goes to the fictional South Pacific island of Miramar to find herself. It's a great story, but the best part of the book is that every sentence, like everything Arin herself says in real life, is charming and hilarious. Five stars!

      I wouldn't tell anyone not to read it and it did make me look up Saipan and briefly entertain the idea of visiting. She does give a clear picture of the culture shock one can experience moving to a tropical island as well as some commentary on the effects of Western culturatization. Too bad she never seemed to get over the boyfriend left behind.

      Some of this novel is set on 'Miramar', in the territory of the Northern Mariana Islands. The island is a mixture of beautiful and depressingly spoilt, which is probably an accurate description. The narrator / protagonist is really annoying.

      Dropped. Just kept getting interested in better books (might complete it yet - but it didn't grab me the way the author's "Save the Enemy" did.
