Great read. A look into the lives of the eclectic people who work and stay at the Hotel Honolulu.

Loosely structured collection of tales about the characters who visit, live at or work at a backwater hotel in Oahu that is NOT on Waikiki Beach. A lot of insights into Hawaiian culture that tourists wouldn't normally pick up; a lot of weird sexual escapades.

This book is ok. I thought I was getting a real life travel and living account. After a few chapters, when I seriously thought he's GOT to be making this stuff up, I noticed it's a NOVEL. In depth look at the goings on at an old hotel. Interesting characters. I was hoping for more description of Hawaii, but maybe I didn't read far enough... Gutter language abounds.

Sounds sort of like the room I stayed in...
