    I was so curious after reading a travel story about this island in The Week magazine, that I purchased this book Sometimes its a bit too meticulous in its details, but overall an interesting story that makes you feel what it s like to live in a very special place In a world of turmoil and war, how lucky are the people who live there.

    Tristan Du Cunha is a fascinating place And the people are tough I liked the book a lot.

    I bought this to learn about the most isolated populated island in the world It is a slice of a life that is very different from mine, or yours, I will bet.
