5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining recounting of a crazy adventure, 1 Sep 2013

This review is from: Free Country: A Penniless Adventure the Length of Britain (Kindle Edition)
Free Country is the tale of a cycle ride from Lands End to John O'Groats with a difference - the author and his best friend started out with only a pair of boxer shorts each, and, without spending any money whatsoever, had to blag equipment, food and accommodation on the way.

It's a crazy yet fascinating journey, and one that is fantastically recounted by the author. With tongue firmly in cheek and no shortage of humour, George Mahood takes us along for the ride. You can't help but chuckle at their attempts to ride a foam wheeled scooter, or cycle in an oversized pair of suit trousers, all the while cheering them on in their endeavour to prove that human kindness and generosity is alive and well. And at the end of each chapter (each corresponding to one day of the journey), the only thing to do is start reading the next chapter straight away.

My only minor niggles with the book are that there is some reuse of jokes, and in the Kindle edition at least, the photos are little on the small side, but don't let that put off. This is a cracking read, and one that will keep you thoroughly engrossed and entertained from start to finish.
