Amber Tamblyn

Perfect for a deserted island, since it is basically the history of the Hawaiian islands and its people. Sarah Vowell's morbid humor and tone make even the darkest and the saddest moments in Hawaiian history, dare I say, enjoyable. From its glorious days with Princess Ka'iulani to her culture-shattering dethroning under Western colonization, Vowell seems to know how to rip your heart wide open while suturing it back up at the same time.
