I wouldn't recommend this book but just the same it was a ride through these countries albeit really about the author's attitudes to life and inabilty to enjoy anything of which he experienced.
My dreams (after my hallucinations faded)were achieved in my vicarious journey in the Pantagonian Express.
Thank you PT
Theroux seems to have been going through a depressive stage on this journey, there is nothing but despair to write about, each new place is greeted with the same amount of snide remarks and barbed observations, each character met is dissected and their weaknesses surgically analysed, this book is a joyless adventure that only promises to make one glad to live in the western world.
