With a meandering, informative, and upbeat tone, this book describes islands literally, scientifically, and metaphorically.

I would have rated this book higher if there had not been so many pages with overly long sentences (53+words). The overuse of dashes and parentheses became annoying. That said, the book covers an interesting & diverse range of topics detailing the unique relationship between humans and islands. The inclusion of a few maps would greatly enhance the reading.
