There are very few books that I can think of that bored me as much as this one did.
For anyone who has spent time backpacking and staying in hostels. This book is like that bloke (usually English)who hangs out all day in the hostel waiting to ambush someone and tell them about how great & adventurous his life has been. All the places he's seen, all the crazy capers he got himself involved in. I don't know how they have seen & done so much when they spend so much time within the four walls of the hostel.
Anyway for anyone who can relate, that is the best way I can sum up the first 100 or so pages of this book.
