A great insight into Chile,
This review is from: Chile: Travels in a Thin Country (Paperback)
I'm going to Chile for a month in January and wanted to get a perspective beyond the usual travel guides. Sara Wheeler's book does just that.
Despite being an account of her travels from the early 90s, you still get a strong sense of the intricacies of the different populations and the Chilean climate through the author's insightful and witty writing. She meets a multitude of people, both Chileans and foreigners, all of whom are depicted vividly and her opinion of them presented candidly. You're drawn into her own personal adventure and maybe she could reveal more, maybe that's just me being nosey. Who knows?
It's a great piece of thoughtful and well observed travel writing. After reading this book, I cannot wait to go to Chile.
