Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Kingdom by the Sea: A Journey Around the Coast of Great Britain (Kindle Edition)
I rather rate Theroux as a travel writer but this tome struck me as a rather cynical jaunt around various parts of the coastline where he attempted to find the worst in people. Travel writing has to feel authentic - this didn't and often I was left feeling that the author was overegging his jaundiced view of the human race. As a fellow misanthropist I felt he didn't need to do this.
But there we are: Theroux fans will always buy the next Theroux book.
