GETTING STONED WITH SAVAGES A Trip through the Islands of Fiji and Vanuatu

by | Read by Simon Vance

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

There's nothing like a crisp British accent to match a narrative voice that is detached, wry, and sarcastic. Following his wife, who is in pursuit of her career, Troost goes to the Pacific Islands, where he indulges in endless bowls of kava, a psychoactive drink that resembles muddy water. That's the "stoned" part of the title. The "savages" are cannibals, whom Troost searches for but never finds. A cross between Bill Bryson and Hunter S. Thompson, Troost is a delightfully unreliable reporter. And Simon Vance delivers each line with charm. A buttery voice like his is the closest many of us will come to experiencing anything like kava.
