I have traveled the world and read an array of travel essays. This book unfortunately did not capture me nor draw me in.
Would you try another book from Sarah Marquis and Stephanie Hellert - Translator and/or Emily Lawrence?
What could Sarah Marquis and Stephanie Hellert - Translator have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
It read too much like a dry, unemotional journal where she took her notes from her travels and just put them in sentence form. I'm not sure how it could have been changed to make it more enjoyable. It just seemed "off" overall to me.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Lawrence?
Anyone but her. I did not like her monotone breathiness at all. It made me felt completely detached from the experiences the author had. I could not connect to the story because of the narrator.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The redeeming quality is that normally I am drawn to this type of book and experience. I thought how can I go wrong with this book? The cover art is the best thing about it unfortunately.
