My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Absolutely splendid book. Highly humorous. This is basically what you would get if Woody Allen was consistent with his wit. Actually, Allen loosely adapted this book for his Bananas film. Skip the film, read the book. Tropical dictators, insurrectionists, bananas, true love, scheming women, clueless men. This book has it all. I think, however, it’s out of print, so copies can be rather expensive. In terms of audience, it really is on par with a Woody Allen film, for the most part, so I’d recommend it only for adults.
