This review is from: My Other Life: A Novel (Paperback)
...I wish he'd stuck to the principles he espoused in his earlier travel books about not sharing seemingly mundane events or self-reflection with the reader. I used to feel this was a shame and wished he would reveal more about the circumstances that led him to take some of the more notable trips, but not now - he was right then, and alas, wrong now. Nevertheless, as a fan of his writing I read it and enjoyed some of the insights, but for me it too often trailed off into alarming levels of angst and self-pity. So in summary, it closed some open questions I'd had in my mind since I first started reading his works about 15 years ago, but really, I should have resisted the temptation ... as should he. Sorry Paul.
