I usually love travel memoirs, especially if they are witty and make me laugh.
Unfortunately, this book fell flat for me. I read about 20% but did not finish. There were too many parts describing the business, and only short glimpses into adventures with other cultures, which is the part I was really looking for. I found myself losing interest, when the description of the power plants or whatever they were, were getting too long.
I just noticed that this book has all 4 and 5 star reviews on amazon, so obviously this is a book that appeals to many. And maybe it gets hilarious after the first 20%, and maybe I should have given it more of a chance…Either way, this is my honest opinion: it fell flat for me.
