It is quite astonishing what a careful observer Arthur Grimble was; and surprisingly unbiased one at that! You can really sense his genuine admiration and utmost respect for the Islanders. He chose to learn theirs instead. How rare is that? Now, apart from being an excellent study of the Gilbertese culture, the book is also an engrossing portrayal of colonial administration.
Bygone times are vivid in all their glory on every single page. So if you have ever dreamt of a time machine, or if you have ever been curious what it was like to work for the British Colonial Office, this definitely is a book for you. Sir Arthur Grimble had a delightful way with words, so his memoir reads like a charm.
For whom would I recommend it? For those interested in Kiribati, or Pasifika in general.
