Bora Bora Novel

The Bungalow


By: Sarah Jio

Genre: Fiction

Pages: 290

Published: 2011

Read: November

3 out of 5

I choose this book for my latest book club because it was set in Bora Bora and that is where husband and I went on our honeymoon in September.  I was disappointed on description of the scenery; however being set during World War II was very interesting. It was excited to read about the construction of the shelters by the army because we took a tour and viewed some of the original, still standing, shelters. There were a few other references to places we saw, just not much portrayal and being in on an unique island I would have like to have a more descriptive novel. The novel itself was quick read and very predictable, which is the main reason I gave just an average rating.
