That being said, the book really picks up when the Tour starts, and Hume's descriptions of the stages is riveting, original, and unpredictable.
It would be a far better book if he would have dropped all the romantic/sexual nonsense and concentrate on the cycling, which he so masterfully portrays.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Definitely not for kids, and certainly Terry is not a role model, but the fun of books is to fall into a character you would never be in real life (isn't that why we all love a murder/crime novel?). So in that sense it was a fun book. Nothing educational, or even instructional, but if you need a book for a beach, or just a mindless read, this is a page turner.
