This is an awful book. It wants desperately to be glamorous and exciting, but is quite incredibly dull. Not a single character or event rings true and at no point does it capture the chaotic fun of travel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey You Guys!, 17 Sep 2004
This film is brilliant, completely brilliant. It is a classic that I must have seen 20 times and I am so pleased that it is finally coming out on DVD. It's funny, dramatic and has a feel good ending that diesn't make you feel sick. Wonderful. Just reading some of the other reviews has reminded me of some of the various characters and situations.
If you've seen it before you'll want to buy it, if not then you NEED to watch it, and therefore you should also buy it. It really is a MUST BUY!

This is an odd sort of book. It switches between being a story about 2 friends' adventures as they travel remote parts of the world to a psychoanalysis of the main character, Will. It is the latter that at times lets the book down, the bizaree workings of his mind taking up huge chunks of the narration.
The relationship between Will and his companion Hand is explored and is a strong point of the book.
Overall it's a good effort though, and I'd certainly recommend it.
