Maybe in the editing of myself, which unfortunately neither Mr. Magarey or his publisher deemed necessary to do in this book.
Honestly, I can't determine who is more at blame here. Joel Magarey is certainly two things: 1. Not a good writer and 2. A seemingly self-absorbed weasel whose OCD (one of the more compelling subjects of the book) certainly can't be entirely to blame for.
His publisher on the other hand deserves a worse critique in that while writers are very often too deep into the work and self-pity, if they decided to publish and print this steaming pile of poo the least they could have done is tone down the ad nauseam for all that is holy!
And then there is my question as to how did they get J.M. Coetzee to donate a pull-quote for the jacket. That is the only thing about this book that will continue to keep me up at night.
OR, this is a well veiled stab at the genre. Honestly, I don't think he's that smart.
Do yourself a favor, don't bother to crack the spine at your local bookseller, " let alone sink the dollars down for it.
If you like travel books, this is a great one. If you like self-discovery, this is truly original.
