funny, inspirational and honest - I think Anna would be the perfect dinner party guest
on 9 March 2017
Beautifully and surprisingly funny. A couple of short chapters in, when Anna gets to Peru the story comes alive and it becomes impossible to put the book down... Interestingly, it almost seems that when the author wrote the book she couldn't fully relate to the person she had been before her journey began. So I found myself having less sympathy for the character at the beginning of the book, but strangely, and this is what makes it interesting, this adds to the integrity of her journey.
A delicately and honestly written easy read that gives some real insight into the whole scene (which some people in the scene may find a little uncomfortable). Naturally I've tried looking the gorgeous Maximo up on Google (I just wanted to see a pic of this impossibly handsome man!) but to no avail.. I think she must have changed his name, which is probably very sensible.. I wouldn't be brave enough to do what Anna has done, nor would I want it to be my journey. However, it has inspired me to focus on my own journey and from that perspective alone it is fully worth while.
