This review is from: Surviving India (Kindle Edition)
It's funny in places, but ultimately just a day-by-day travelogue from a couple who seem to enjoy very little of what they are doing. The third-person thing takes a while to get used to, and it reminded me quite a lot of the less-than-glamorous truth of the India backpacker scene: essentially, a bunch of Westerners who go to "experience India" by spending their time sitting in guesthouses playing cards and complaining to each other about how the locals keep ripping them off, before sauntering off to look around a few temples. Sounds shallow, because it is. And it begs the question: why bother?
