4.0 out of 5 stars A great read!June 14, 2013

Normally punctuation errors and misspelled words irritate me, but I was somehow able to forgive them in this book. As another writer said, there wasn't really a plot but it was a great read -- sort of like taking a mental vacation.

This book beautifully illustrates the wonders of life -- the triumphs, the disappointments, and the magic of it all. The writer has a gift not only for drawing the reader in to such lovable characters, but also for realizing that even though many of us do not live on an island paradise, we shouldn't forget that life is a precious gift. When you really step back and examine it, if you really are able to see all the wonders and simple joys that life affords, it makes you realize that with the right attitude life can be just wonderful. Reading this book gives me that feeling.

This is not your typical novel, but it is definitely worth reading. The bird's answers were priceless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beach read!June 9, 2013

This is a great book to take along on your beach vacation, or to read at home while you are dreaming about your next beach vacation! Peacock does a great job of appealing to the senses in his writing. His descriptions of the smell and taste of the salty air, the sounds of the music, the feeling of the warm water and sun, and the sights of a tropical paradise made me feel like I was watching the story in person. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!June 9, 2013

You would never know by the title what a spiritual not religious but spiritual book this is. It's sweet and funny, both sad and uplifting, it makes you realize that no matter how bad you may feel things are...today really is a gift, every breath is a gift. That sometimes things are as they are for a reason and that luck is something you have to make yourself available to, something you have to just believe in. If you only read one book this summer, heck this year...please let it be this one, you'll be glad you did!

I loved this book. Is it great literature? No. It is, though, a great read with just enough depth to make you feel as though you've picked up a little philosophy along the way. Kick off your shoes, get a boat drink, settle into a deck chair and follow the parrot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and exoticJune 5, 2013
This review is from: The Parrot Talks in Chocolate: The Life and Times of a Hawaiian TIKI Bar (Paperback)
A freewheeling romp through an island world few of us are lucky enough to experience. Well developed characters and a sweet sense of humor make this a book for the entire family. Especially good summer reading!
