I'm afraid I did not enjoy this book at all. There was too much of Alistair himself with an overall impression of a whine about this journey/lack of girlfriend etc and not enough about Africa. He travelled through so many fascinating countries but it was all about his endurance and bread and jam! Maybe this should not have been catalogued in the 'travel' section, but perhaps the personal/biography or even sports section. I may say that being entitled to a student loan and then managing to save it was certainly not the idea behind the government's student loan service.
