Much more than a travel book, 5 May 2012
Without giving too much away from this deeply involving book, I can definitely say that if you are only expecting travel literature, you are very much mistaken. This is much, much more. Written straight from the heart of a complex and charismatic character, In Search of Greener Grass details a journey that is as much psychological as it is geographical. While we are brilliantly guided from Essex to the slightly more exotic Mongolia, we are also guided through the fascinating mind of the very real narrator; for every exciting event on the journey, there is an often endearing, and always honest, insight into the traveler. Baring all and bravely written, this book is an exotic slice of real life.
