A light and zany novel that follows a screw-up pilot on his adventures with a cargo cult and missionaries who may not be helping the islanders as much as harming them. I haven't read anything by Moore before and I was looking for some vacation reading, but I found the book just wasn't smart enough. It seems I was looking for something more like Tom Robbins, which is zany and quirkly and intelligent, instead of just zany and prose which wasn't noteworthy.
I can't say I recommend it unless you want something without almost any social commentary or provocative ideas.
