This is a fun book about a New Yorker who moves to the Caribbean to run a hotel. There are some truly funny parts to this book; however, I did not like the ending.

I though it was dated and really slow. Not very funny, but that's just me.

At first this book started out a little slow for me, but then it picked up speed as I went along. I've never experienced a holiday on a Caribbean island, but after reading this book I can just imagine what life is like there; especially behind the scenes. A fun read!

DON'T STOP THE CARNIVAL is Herman Wouk's comedy about living out your fantasies on an exotic Caribbean island. Norman Paperman, a successful Broadway publicity agent, has long dreamed of escaping his high-pressure Manhattan life. In a fit of bravado, he chucks it all and buys an old hotel on tiny, primitive, lush Amerigo island.

If you've ever listened to Jimmy Buffett's CD "Don't Stop the Carnival", this is where he found the story about Norman Paperman. I heard the CD first, then found this book on PBS and was curious. I'm happy to say the book is very entertaining, fast reading, and is a perfect match with Buffett's music.
