Samenvatting:

Dash does not feel lucky. When his plane crashes in the South Pacific on a honeymoon flight to Sydney, Australia, he is already a broken man, having left his cheating fiancé at home in Vermont. Dash is the crash's only survivor, and the natives who find his battered body blame him for poisoning their fish with spilled jet fuel. Once he has sufficiently recovered, they plan to offer him as a human sacrifice to their Volcano God, who they believe downed his plane and cursed them with drought and hardship. While Dash awaits his fate, he abandons all hope of rescue. But his new life has its moments. He meets ten-year-old Tiki, daughter of the chief and an innocent who dreams of being "chosen" by the soldiers who occasionally visit their island. He also conjures up an imaginary friend, Weeleekonawahulahoopa -- Willy, for short. Willy is half-man, half-fish, a sometime god who resigned his lofty status after failing to save his people from drowning. As Dash comes to understand the natives who hold him captive and confront his own unhappy past, he suspects that he might not be so unlucky after all.

Fantastic/unexpected

door ILL2Lady (Gepubliceerd door gebruiker WorldCat 2015-04-10) Uitstekend Permalink

A tragic-comedy that I could not put down. Dash is a bit of a sad jerk; a sucker for a pretty girl by the name of Sarah, who breaks his heart by cozying-up with the local drug dealer. Poor Dash tries forgetting by using the honeymoon plane ticket purchased by his slightly crazy mother - yet another...

Spiritual. For April 17 Book Club Discussion

door CalDirector (Gepubliceerd door gebruiker WorldCat 2015-03-31) Uitstekend Permalink

This was a very thoughtful and often funny selection for our bimonthly book club.

 

To summarize: Dash is downtrodden. He goes on his honeymoon alone, but the flight crashes into the ocean and he is the sole surviving during an absolutely haunting chapter. The book becomes much...
