This review is from: To the Moon and Timbuktu: A Trek Through the Heart of Africa (Kindle Edition)
I downloaded this Kindle book as a bargain deal last Christmas. For that reason I thought it might not be up to much but was willing to take a chance. How wrong I was. Although I could never consider travelling and taking such risks as described here by the author, I have to say that I found her tale captivating. I bounced from feeling horrified at the risks she took and the conditions endured by her and others, to feeling a sense of peace and calm along with her for having 'discovered' her Africa - something she'd always wanted to experience.
Yes, it's a tale about her experiences, both leading up to the trip(s) (briefly) and whilst in the midst of them. I'm still puzzled though by her husband's laid back attitude to it all, but that doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the book.
