3.0 out of 5 stars Great "back-up" to tv programme, 13 Jun. 2001

This review is from: Jungle Janes (Paperback)
I really enjoyed the C4 programme on these women who decided to give up their middle-class existance for a month to trek thro' the jungle. This book covers the women's thoughts and experiences by their journal/diary records. Unfortunately the women are not covered evenly, and you get the feeling that a lot of the "real stuff" were left out. A lot of the entries are by the same "personalities" and the reader is always left wondering what is being said between the lines. For example, during the C4 programme Wendy lost it infront of the camera and I wanted to know more......but her entries are thin on the ground. Also it would have been nice to have a final chapter on the women after they returned back to civilisation. It sort of just finishes, leaving the reading with the word "and???" left hanging. Having said that, what an amazing bunch of women, what an amazing adventure. Made me think, from the comfort and warmth of my bed, whilst sipping a glass of dry, chilled, white wine, that maybe, just maybe, I could do it too!!
