About the Author
Simon Varwell is a compulsive traveller and spends too much time having what if... moments. Up the Creek Without a Mullet and its sequel The Return of the Mullet Hunter tell the story of one such moment. Simon was born in 1978 and grew up in Benbecula in the Western Isles of Scotland. He is married and lives in Inverness. His website can be found at www.simonvarwell.co.uk.

From New Zealand to North America, with a few stop-offs in Inverness, the story zips along with crisp and clear travel writing that brings the diverse locations and characters to life. But there is as much disappointment as triumph in his travels and whilst that might take the edge off a feel-good story it makes the tale somehow more real.
It's unclear if there will be more Mullet adventures but I hope there will, it makes for a good read. I see that Simon Varwell has another (non-Mullet related) travel book due out later this year and I shall be looking out for that.
There Is something easy about Simons books, an ease to immerse yourself in his travelling, an ease to identify with a 'normal' person. This isn't a story about a well off persons travels to top destinations, or a book filled with facts & statistics. This is a book about a man who's urge to travel manifests itself as places with Mullet in the title. It takes the author to far flung places you wouldn't normally hear about, but the commentary is well written and informative and In more than a few places funny! I found this to have more depth and feeling than the first book and I really felt for the guy and found myself wishing him success on his mission even knowing the real mission had finished some time ago. That is pretty much what I want from a travel book, a great read.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
On a personal level, the start of the book drew me in straight away, as I have family links with Glasgow (daughter) and was brought up very close to the first two 'Mullets' visited. I enjoyed the pace and flow of the recount and the fascinating way in which Simon takes you across the world from mullet to mullet. I read this in less than a day, as the pages almost turned themselves, and am now eagerly anticipating the next volume.
Not laugh-out-loud funny (apart from possibly the terrible joke about the Coit Tower) but increasingly engaging, this is a very worthwhile read. It not only gives an insight into some rarely-visited corners of the globe but also into a gregarious and unusual Scotsman.
