The story is unfortunately too outdated for modern readers to appreciate. I was thoroughly bored and frustrated with the main character the entire time. He is racist, hypocritical, bigoted, and arrogant. The writing was so poor that I contemplated whether or not it was poorly translated from another language. I don't recommend reading this unless you're someone who thinks an excessively detailed and less interesting version of Cast Away with Tom Hanks acting like an absolute asshole sounds appealing.
