This review is from: The Rum Diary (Bloomsbury Classic Reads) (Paperback)
I regret not reading The Rum Diaries when it was first released , and it's taken the release of the movie to prompt me , to read the book. The Rum diaries is a great refreshing read like the breaks of the Caribbean ocean. Based in the late fifties on the sundrenched latin American Caribbean island of Puerto Rico and centred around a group of quite hedonistic American journalists , based in Sanjuan as they survive on a diet of litres of rum, junk food at seedy bars, and an extreme social life including skinny dipping in the Caribbean surf. The plot and pace flow compulsively in this classic which is an easy read not to be missed.
