This novel is exciting and hard to put down! It paints a beautiful picture of island life that felt like taking a vacation. The action-hero was also a meditator, which was a unique combination. The story is entertaining, but it also makes you think differently about nature, technology, and their interaction. It was an inspiring book, imaginatively. It really created a world for me that I enjoyed experiencing! I have done a lot of creative work as a result of reading this book.
