Top critical review
on 13 February 2013
As an avid skier I was looking forward to reading this on my recent trip to the Alps. Unfortunately, the book was a disappointment. Billed as "entertaining", "wry" and "satirical" from the reviews and jacket notes, it looked like the ideal companion.
Will Randall's season in the Alps was, in reality, rather like most people's ski vacations. He fell over, he got drunk, he met some nice (and some not so nice) people, he took some ski lessons and marginally improved his skiing. Perhaps nothing really funny happened to him in his time in the Alps? I had so hoped that this would be an entertaining book about the sport I love; sadly it didn't live up to expectations.
