A few years back, I made a list of countries I wanted to visit. This list turned out to be a tiny bit racist as it didn't include any countries below the equator (with the possible exception of Aus/NZ). I just don't have any interest in going to Africa, South America, South Asia, etc etc. Anyway, this book which follows the Tropic of Capricorn across Africa, then Australia and finally South America didn't change my mind.

It's a great read, but at no point throughout the 23,000 mile journey did I wish I was there. Reeve spends a lot of time with indigenous people in each place, and learns of their lives and hardships, so maybe if he had just spent more time in luxury hotels and looking at these people from an air-conditioned bus, I'd be tempted to follow in his footsteps :D

Simon Reeve's style of digging deep beneath the surface and simultaneously making his experiences so tangible make this book a fantastic read. It takes you on a journey that sees beyond the superficiality of most tourists experiences. Food for thought on how our insatiable appetites for 'stuff' affects those people around the world who have no choice in the way their lives are irrevocably altered. Wonderful investigative journalism!

Haven't read it yet, but I am a great fan of Simon Reeve. I had expected a DVD, but that was probably my fault. He is a great traveller, listener and writer, always digging up parts of a country, nobody would ever suspect of being there. Fascinating!

I saw this on TV and decided that I could get much more from the book and although I've only reached just before half way, I have thoroughly enjoyed it - I am a great fan of Simon Reeve and don't miss any of his broadcasts on TV.

Inspiring read written in the most affable manner. Simon Reeve weaves together descriptive travel writing with topical social and environment issues like a master loomsman*. Buy it.

*Loom operator sounds a little prosaic.
