This review is from: Are We Nearly There Yet?: A Family's 8000 Miles Around Britain in a Vauxhall Astra (Kindle Edition)
The travel parts of this book are funny and the author's observations about small children are very accurate. However I found the conversations between the author and his wife really depressing, like there was something unresolved going on. On paper the other sub plot that concerns the authors father should have been the most depressing part of the book. So it feels strange that mundane conversations between husband and wife made me feel so miserable. On a practical note I can't believe that a family would spend 5 months away only returning home less than 24 hours before their daughter started school for the first time.

I agree with a lot of what you posted; I found this book to be a strange read in that it infuriated me a lot of the time (the author and his wife appearing to be rather judgemental and dismissive of anyone who doesn't share their view of the world), yet I laughed out loud in a few places too. I found the conversations between Ben and his wife to be a bit irritating merely because they call each other " love" all the time. Once I had noticed this I found that it was constant and very annoying!
