It's a very long way from home. Bernard Walsh is in Hawaii on family business, escorting his querulous father to the bedside of a long-forgotten aunt. His mission transports him from quiet obscurity in Rummridge, England, to a lush tropical playground, from cloistered solitude into the unfamiliar company of package tourists.

Lodge combines his past fictional interests in Catholicism (The British Museum is Falling Down, etc.) and social satire (Nice Work, etc.) to produce this always engaging and clever Paradise news book of innocents abroad. The unlikely naif is Bernard Walsh, a rather dour, middle- aged, part-time instructor in theology from a minor college in Lodge's fictional town of Rummidge.

The comedy in Paradise News is no match for the hilarity of Greene's Our Man in Havana, and Lodge's Catholicism is a bore where Greene's can be haunting and beautiful/5. Bernard Walsh, agnostic theologian, has a professional interest in heaven.

But when he travels to Hawaii with his reluctant father Jack, to visit Jack's dying, estranged sister, it feels more like purgatory than paradise.

Surrounded by quarrelling honeymooners, a freeloading anthropologist and assorted tourists in search of their own personal paradise, and with his father whisked off to the /5(3). With so much to offer Norfolk is the perfect choice to getaway with friends & family.
