Not just for motorcyclists,

This review is from: Running With The Moon: A Boy's Own Adventure (Paperback)
I have two main hobbies, off road motorcycling and reading, so when I bought RUNNING WITH THE MOON I was on to a winner and knew that I would enjoy it even before I had turned a page. From the tragic prologue to the epilogue after his incredible journey is over this book is a real rollercoaster of emotions (sorry about the cliche). You almost feel like you were there and I wished I could have been to assist him when the bike got bogged down in thigh high water filled jungle tracks, I know from experience what its like to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a broken down bike. But then again there is a BIG difference between the middle of nowhere in the Yorkshire Dales, and the middle of nowhere in the Congo (no gorillas in Yorkshire). I also wanted to buy him a drink and cheer him up when he was stood up in Cairo, although that did eventually have a happy outcome. Initially I bought this book because of my interest in motorcycles, but non bikers dont be put off, I can heartily recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure. Brilliant.
