Really disappointed - what's the point?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Changing Gears: A Family Odyssey to the End of the World (Paperback)
I am half way through this book and not sure if I can be bothered to finish it.There is no depth or substance to it, the language is really simplistic; it's like reading a children's book.There are very few interesting descriptions of the country they are cycling through or the people who are encountered along the way, and isn't that the whole point of travel writing? I don't really feel that I have got to know the family so cannot engage with them, to the point of not caring enough to finish the book.I am a mother of 2 and thought I would be able to relate but there's very little to relate to. I appreciate in the book that the author has to cover thousands of miles through fourteen countries (and maybe that's the problem) but I really want to read about more than just headwinds, drizzle and M&Ms.
