Customer Review

on 7 September 2009
I heard of this book from a number of friends and ordered myself a copy as it sounded so enticing. Even though I am now in possession of my bus pass, and am therefore unlikely to be setting off round the world - with or without sparkly flipflops - I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was my Must Read book for several before bed sessions. In spite of the fact that my copy is clearly a demic, as large numbers of pages fell out during the first of these sessions, I wouldn't have dreamed of sending it back and having to wait to continue the saga ! For me, another big "plus" is that it is well-written and crafted by an author who is clearly skilled in her use of words, rather than being in breathless, "Oh my Gaaawwwddd" trendy yoof-speak like the lower end of chick-lit or populist magazine articles. I don't know whether even in my youth (I don't think we had yoof in my day) I could have been as intrepid as Chelsea clearly is, but it did make me wish I had perhaps been a little more adventurous and sigh over missed opportunities. I hope this book will encourage others to travel.
