2.0 out of 5 stars short and fluffy, 14 July 2012

This review is from: Boomerang: The Meltdown Tour (Kindle Edition)
This book was a real disappointment. At £11.50 for the Kindle edition I expected far more than a 2 hour read. It feels like Lewis, having written the brilliant "Big Shor,t" fancied doing a bit of travelling at his readers' expense. The result is a book which tells us what we probably already knew about Germany and Ireland (basically they're screwed and likely to take us down with them) shows us that the Germans weren't so bright either, and looks at what went wrong in Iceland without investigating what is really interesting about Iceland, namely that they refused to back their banks and are now on the road to recovery. Although Lewis is always going to be an interesting writer and storyteller there is a real feel of an American abroad in many of his stories and judgments. Perhaps it would have been better if, like many of his compatriots, he had been Too Fat to Fly
