Read the book in a day. Quite easy flowing and simple to read.
However I was drawn to it as my uncle is the infamous J that features and I was interested to learn about the escapades of his youth.
Once I got used to the conversational writing I enjoyed it. Although admittedly cringing with some of the things that got up to, being related to one of the characters, it really captured the essence of a couple of young kids from Birmingham having the spontaneous trip of a lifetime.
Yes, it's not a high brow travel book about the sights or doesn't really tell you anything about the places that would be of any help.
However it reads like a diary of a young man going on an spur of the moment crazy adventure with his friend and the trials and tribulations that go along with it. no money, lots of alcohol and courage and some madness.
I felt like I was travelling along side them both from the comfort of my sofa.
