3.0 out of 5 stars Better for younger readers, 9 May 2011

This review is from: High Heels and a Head Torch: The Essential Guide For Girls Who Backpack (Paperback)
I thought this book was fine. Part were funny, parts were helpful but I would hesitate to recommend it to anyone as a guide to help them organise themselves for travel. Its also very 'British' to the point of alientating readers who might not be British, for example, in one section she discusses how to tell where people are form based on their 'incorrect' pronouncation of some words.....not really needed in a backpacking guide. I can't say I didnt like it, it was good. I would recommend for people who are perhaps planning their very first trip, and as an addition to, not as a replacement for, a more well known guide book. I think the title could do without the words 'guide' and 'essential', its more of a 'look at the lighter side of girls who backpack'.
