5.0 out of 5 stars Move over 'Le Tour', 'Le Jog' is here., 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free Country: A Penniless Adventure the Length of Britain (Kindle Edition)
It has a great opening line - "We were standing in our pants on the end of Britain". I downloaded it for holiday reading and finished it over the first weekend. The book puts you in the right frame of mind for a holiday. It makes you laugh and smile as their adventure propels you northwards through Britain. If you live or have lived or have family/friends that live on the route then it becomes a bit more personal as you wouldn't want places that you are familiar with letting them down. I'm happy to know that at Frodsham (where my sister lives) they were given plenty of help at the leisure centre and even better, in Carlisle (where I was born) they were helped by a hitman. Brilliant! On returning from holiday I diverted off the M6 to drive through the market town of Milnthorpe. There was no market that day but its nice to know that it can have one if it wants to. As you can gather, the book is written with plenty of wit / humour / sarcasm but it is the generosity and enthusiasm of the British public who help them throughout their adventure which is the real star.
