1.0 out of 5 stars Try and keep awake... 20 Sep 2006
By Matt
Format:Paperback
Not one of the best NZ books. This reads as a tedious journey around NZ, making me wonder if it was the same country that I'd lived in! However, one of the best things about this book is that its writen in a style that makes you think you could do better yourself. Why I should want to know that at the end of a day that the author sits down with his laptop and does some writing, I'm still not sure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Judgmental and Boring 21 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is the kind of book that could make you not want to visit a place just by it's sheer negativity.

Please understand that it is the author who is negative and boring, not the place.

His dry, whining style fails to accurately capture the warmth of the place or the easy-going nature of the people.

If it were not for KNOWING that the place is wonderful and awe-inspiring, I might have been convinced by his chauvinist, arrogant and bigoted observations to skip the journey entirely.

This book is a painful read with no soul. Don't bother buying it, as you'd learn more about New Zealand in a bottle of Oyster Bay wine.

1.0 out of 5 stars annoying little man 7 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
having travelled NZ i realised early on in this book that this is the type of arrogant and irksome of tourists that kiwis dislike.his constant whining of situations that weren`t exactly mirroring his american homeland drove me insane.the most blood boiling of books i have ever read.try a different book and get a real feel for the most beautiful country you will ever visit

3.0 out of 5 stars Author: okay. Book: Better. 26 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback
This is a good read if you like NZ or want to learn about NZ, but beware an author that initially isn't particularly likeable! Worth reading...
