This review is from: In Search of Greener Grass (Kindle Edition)
I read this book while laid on a beach in the Dominican Republic, the sky was perfect blue, the sea crystal clear, the sand golden yellow. Why have I mentioned that? Well because I was in paradise but this book made me feel soooo negative. It starts off with him saying how he can't do with people who plan trips cos he prefers to just do the trip without planning. That's fair enough, each to his own. But then he spends the rest of the book moaning about things which go wrong because he had not planned!! Bizarre. He constantly moans about everything, it's too cold, it's too hot, it's too wet, it's too dry, he doesn't like company, he doesn't like being alone, he doesn't like camping out, he doesn't like hotels. This guy is so contrary he should be called Mary.
By half way through the book he had me wanting to jump off the nearest cliff! That's when I looked round and reminded myself I was in paradise.
The title and the final chapter sum the other up very well - no matter what he's got, he's never happy. Pity really because reading between the lines he deserves a break. He regularly mentions his daughter, who lives in another country with his ex. He seems to want to explain why, but never opens up, pity because that may explain why he's constantly looking for something better. He gets confused whether his home is in UK or USA but again I think it's because he can't settle.
If you can put up with the constant negativity this book can be a good read to the end, but be warned, don't read it anywhere near a cliff edge!
