3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately entertaining
I found that this was quite an entertaining read, if at times a bit annoying. Why, for example, does he unfailingly have to call his cycling partner - and father-in;law - his "Bike Buddy"? Also, there are some incidents described in the book that patently could not have happened (such as an attempted murder on two farmers mistaken for burglars), and these detract...

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonkers..., 7 May 2014

This review is from: I will stand in my house forever - Lands End to John O'Groats cycle ride (Kindle Edition)
Love this book, quirky sense of humour, very funny, but also very real tale of a long long bike ride and the nonsense that goes on inside the head of a long distance cyclist!

This review is from: I will stand in my house forever - Lands End to John O'Groats cycle ride (Kindle Edition)
There are lots of books out there about the cycling from one end of the country to the other. This one however, is original, funny and well worth the read!

This review is from: I will stand in my house forever - Lands End to John O'Groats cycle ride (Kindle Edition)
The title of the book is quite random but then so is the author, in a good way. I really enjoyed this book and have since purchased Chris's next book as I like his witty style of writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A laugh aloud read., 29 Nov 2013

This review is from: I will stand in my house forever - Lands End to John O'Groats cycle ride (Kindle Edition)
For anybody who enjoys touring by bike this book will tell you nothing you do not already know about the highs and lows of such adventures, but Chris`s dry humour will having you laughing out loud. Furthermore it may well inspire you to ensure that really do get more from life, but probably not by doing lejog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughed Until Cried, 16 Jun 2013

This review is from: I will stand in my house forever - Lands End to John O'Groats cycle ride (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book for my wife as she is going to do Lands End to John O Groats. She wasn't sure what this book would be like, and she wasn't keen on the bike buddy name initially....but all I can say is those concerns were very short lived. This book was a fantastic read, well written, funny, realistic but also a hint of stretched truth at times....but no matter what she loved it. She was literally crying while reading it, and she is now very sad that she has finished it! Great read - light-hearted & funny - highly recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Neither inspiring, nor truthful, 19 Jun 2014

In an attempt to be amusing the author has made up all sorts of tales. LEJOG is great, this book is not!

3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately entertaining, 13 April 2014

This review is from: I will stand in my house forever - Lands End to John O'Groats cycle ride (Kindle Edition)
I found that this was quite an entertaining read, if at times a bit annoying. Why, for example, does he unfailingly have to call his cycling partner - and father-in;law - his "Bike Buddy"? Also, there are some incidents described in the book that patently could not have happened (such as an attempted murder on two farmers mistaken for burglars), and these detract from the supposedly factual nature of the narrative. Moreover, it is a book to be read rather than in any way a handbook for end-to-enders. The route as described is vague and there is really more about the relationship with B&B proprietors, his father-in-law and his blistered backside than about detailed itineraries or even descriptions of the scenery.
