2.0 out of 5 stars how to get round britain as quick as you can, 24 Sept. 2011
really looked forward to this book. quickly started to skip through the 'back then' bits as it's always good to get a bit of author background but this added up to a second book on its own, one which i wouldn't have bought. the actual trip starting with the purchasing of the bike was really good, but quickly turned into a list of road numbers and towns which didn't describe very much. i know out on a bike in the rain isn't great but he really should have just gone home as it didn't sound great at all. the 'northern' part of the trip was totally pointless as in about two paragraphs he went from liverpool area to glasgow to john o'groats to home. i've been down the road from j o'g to aberdeen then onto edinburgh then south a few times and it is spectatular, even in the rain. we went dolphin spottin, which isn't hard as you can see them within about twenty metres from the shore sometimes, clay pidgeon shooting, castle visits etc.the ride up the west coast of scotland is breathtaking as well. i was waitin to see if he went to any of the places we had had been on the bikes but not one place was mentioned so very disappointing. overall too much him and not enough britain.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant story, very well told, 16 Sept. 2011
this was the first book i read on kindle and it was great, the story from start to end was very entertaining, i was getting blisters just reading it. the whole experience must have been daunting at times but danny always managed to back on the bike. i felt the book was very well written which made it easier to read. the descriptions of places, people and events were very well portrayed.

3.0 out of 5 stars a good read but not well written, 16 Sept. 2011
overall a good bedtime read, but at times very amateur use of description and humour. i like my bikes but ive never been to usa, so i thought this could be the inspiration that i need as i have warned the wife of upcoming MLC. unfortunately there was very little in the book that would inspire me to go the USA for a biking holiday, ill stick to europe. i take my hat off to john for going off and doing it, which is always a bit easier to do with no kids/wife/mortgage etc.
