travel book with a twist
on 15 November 2003
When one experiences tragedy in their life what do they do? Become an alcoholic? throw themselves into their work ? Cry endlessly whilst listening to their loved one's favourite songs? Not this guy, he decided to bike round Africa!
The Book has all the usual twists and turns that you would expect someone would encounter whilst riding round this vast continent. Although what sets it apart from the normal travel adventure book is the manner in which is written, it consistently features "flash backs" where the author remembers his lost wife. It also has an underlying, and subtle, theme of romance.
I would definitely recommend this book, it is easy to read and you cannot fail to connect with the author as he expresses emotions that we all feel from time to time.
