Levison Wood is young, intrepid, well-informed and curious. Good qualifications for a traveller. That he has apposite powers of observation and a skilful way with words qualifies him as a good travel writer. Result: One consumes his work greedily and goes looking for more.

One vivid year

Another clever Bryson concept - a year in finely-researched detail. So many illuminating accounts. So many surprises. I adored this book.

Love the cover

The cover is a beautiful artwork. I found the contents to be somewhat less thrilling.

It's love.

A beautiful account of an extraordinary adventure and very well read. One simply falls in love with Tim Cope.

Quietly gripping

Addictive psycho thriller. Drysdale’s prose is elegant and her observational minutiae well wrought. Greco’s reading is matchingly exquisite.
