    I must say I enjoyed it I think I enjoyed it because I read it like the trip it describes It was a very long and very slow trip, so I took a very long and very slow time reading it I kept reading other things in between So whenever I came back to it I was refreshed and not bored by JG s voice or the things he described.Sometimes it did seem like a bit too much Asia And I wasn t particularly fond of Sally, but she wasn t in it much This is an interesting book for people who suffer from wa I must say I enjoyed it I think I enjoyed it because I read it like the trip it describes It was a very long and very slow trip, so I took a very long and very slow time reading it I kept reading other things in between So whenever I came back to it I was refreshed and not bored by JG s voice or the things he described.Sometimes it did seem like a bit too much Asia And I wasn t particularly fond of Sally, but she wasn t in it much This is an interesting book for peop...

    I liked his travels, the concept, but I wasn t fond of him as an author or main character He has a very annoying habit of quoting or making reference to things that are not easily accessible, which gives him a definite air of pretension And all those references were not necessary to the story so I found it a hindrance I definitely would have no desire to hang out with him Of course this book was written in 1994 which makes him about the age of my parents, so maybe that s just him being a Boo I liked his travels, the concept, but I wasn t fond of him as an author or main character He has a very annoying habit of quoting or making reference to things that are not easily accessible, which gives him a definite air of pretension And all those references were not necessary to the story so I found it a hindrance I definitely would have no desire to hang out with him Of course this book was written in 1994 which makes him about the age of my parents, so maybe tha...

    This book about a trip around the world, taken in late Dec 1993 Sept 1994, is fascinating It was undertaken in the pre 9 11 world, security wise, but many of the same problems still exist The premise of Jeff s trip was to circumnavigate the world via the ground or via ocean, and not take any air travel That created problems along the way, and he ran into many who couldn t understand his reluctance for air travel It started out slow, but I couldn t wait to get back to it every night Great This book about a trip around the world, taken in late Dec 1993 Sept 1994, is fascinating It was undertaken in the pre 9 11 world, security wise, but many of the same problems still exist The premise of Jeff s trip was to circumnavigate the world via the ground or via ocean, and not take any air travel That created problems along the way, and he ran into many who couldn t understand his reluctance for air travel It started out slow, but I couldn t wait to get back to it eve...

    I had some problems with the narrator of this book, but the content and subject matter overshadowed this in the end Somehow it s reassuring to read the story of a man trying to circumnavigate the globe without leaving its surface during his mid life crisis with only his ex girlfriend who is seeking her Indian guru for company while you are stuck in the Jet Blue terminal at JFK The journey takes him to some fantastic places, raises some interesting question...
