Jesus Christ by Elizabeth Wallace
Jesus Christ by Elizabeth Wallace
5.0 out of 5 stars A book of gems, 28 July 2011

Rudiak-Gould's writing is superb, clear, precise, detailed and funny, and I found myself gripped by the story as if I was there - a place I will most likely never travel to.
The author, who is an anthropology PhD at Oxford, also manages to transfer a deep and very sensitive cultural perspective of an amazing, and, sadly, disappearing culture. It broadened my perspective on what living in an island entails and it shone light on an an astonishing, beauitful and exotic culture. And, if the island really ends up… Read more
