Dinosaurs, ghosts and bears! Who knew?!
, 9 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Tornadoes on the Mother Road (Kindle Edition)
Friendly, jovial prose make this book fun and easy to read. The writing style is informal and is full of humorous anecdotes, detailed descriptions, and factual information about the places the author visits.
Having been put off travel/factual/autobiographical books in the past by information overload and sombre prose this book was a breath of fresh air. It isn't a travel 'guide' per se, but the road trip does take us on an interesting journey to Midwest USA where the author introduces us to the important things such as places to eat/drink/stay as well as the landmarks. With historical and cultural info and precise descriptions of landscapes and weather interspersed with dialogue and anecdotal narrative, this book has rather a story feel, which is probably why I found it so engaging.
A change from my usual genre of choice, I found the book thoroughly entertaining and I genuinely laughed out loud on several occasions.
