For starters, this is not your average travel book. It really lives up to its title; that’s for sure.
That being said, I thought it was a great book. It isn't very long, so it is easy to get through. There are entertaining stories lacing each and every page, and it keeps you holding on until the very end.
It felt more like read a travel diary than reading a travel novel, and I really liked that. She shares the good, the bad, and the crazy. I felt like I was actually there with her while reading this. It is very descriptive, but not to the point where it just drags on until you forget what you are even reading about.
It is wonderfully written, and it is a fun read.
It made me want to travel, but I have to get over my fear of flying first.
Grab this book for free today and tomorrow on amazon! I really recommend it.
If you can't download it in the next two days, don't worry. It is inexpensive and worth the purchase!
The title itself is really intriguing, and your review adds even more to that. I'm definitely making a notation about it in my "To Read" list. Also, when you mentioned that it reads like a diary, I immediately thought of "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman; I'll be honest though, that's the only diary-style book I've read so far.ReplyDelete
