What would be a favorite quote from The Unhoneymooners?

The temperature – so balmy, so not Minnesota – shocks me into surreal awareness: I’m in Maui, in a dream suite, on an all-inclusive trip. I’ve never been to Hawaii. I’ve never done anything dream-like, period.”

The book has quite a few good quotes, but they could give away the plot to the book if I included the quotes here.

A great choice for a summer beach read. The characters are very likeable and the humor is fitting for the character personalities and setting. This may make you long for a care-free tropical vacation.
