2.0 out of 5 stars not a nice guy, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Awakening Waves: An exciting true life sailing adventure. (Kindle Edition)
Like the story but the Author does come over as a hypocrite

Goes to a boat party see's kkk and Nazi regalia on the wall and leaves offended

A little later the natives tell him after they have talked to him not to mention their
Meeting late at night , later the supposition is that these natives' then go on to kill and eat missionaries on the island
Next day the police came and he denies all knowledge of seeing or talking to anyone
Hmmm.

Reminds me of Niemollers poem during ww2
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

As the author is a Jew I thought his actions were hypocritical
He was in no danger and could have easily left the islands after reporting the incident.
Later on he spends a small paragraph or so describing a grusome bloody murder he supposedly witnessed

I simply don't believe it .
The mental trauma both he and his wife would have suffered would have been life defining
But then he goes on a mystical fishing trip and spends 3 pages describing every detail

Hmmmm..
