A tough read,
This review is from: The Man Who Cycled The World (Paperback)
Lots of other reviewers enjoyed this book, giving it 4 or 5 stars. While the book is well written, I must warn you it is very monotonous. This is not suprising given that other than the occasional visit from a physio or the BBC making a documentary, the author undertook the journey alone. In the first couple of chapters we get an idea of the routine involved, cycle, try to find food to refuel, find a place to sleep at night. The problem is that this is repeated throughout the book, over and over and over. Nothing terribly exciting really happens. I did'nt finish the book in the end, the repetition becoming to much for me half way through. One for the serious cycling enthusiast only.

Well the book is a work of non-fiction, what was written is what happened to him.
Would you have preferred it if he had made stuff up to make it more exciting for you?
Nah, because then you would just complain that he lied. Oh well can't win with some people.
