5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Journey, 2 July 2004
This review is from: Around the World in 78 Days (Paperback)
I don't think that I have read such a wonderfully entertaining travel book. Beautifully written, Coleridge tours the world in Fogg's footsteps in the most enetrtaining way.
Rarely is there a book you just cannot put down. Thankfully, the cyclical nature of the subject is such that when he returns to the Reform Club, you simply return to the first page and take the tour all over again.
There are many plaudits of Palin's trip, which was horribly spoilt by the "power" of the BBC footing the bill to jet crew members of a cargo vessel so that Palin and his team could continue their sea level expedition. Fogg would turn in his grave.
Coleridge, however, attempts to follow at least the spirit of Fogg's trip.
An easy read, one can simply drift along, with the author doing all the hard work for you. You feel as if you did the trip yourself!!!
