This womans style of writing was highly attractive for me, I felt like I was sitting right there while she was telling her story. Very descriptive, laugh out loud funny through most of it. But what I really liked was her outlook on life, which really got me thinking about my own. When a book does that for me, well that's what reading a book is all about for me! What more can I say other than I really enjoyed this one!

This one was just ok for me. It was a little like a semi boring aunt talking about her extended vacation. There was a few funny bits and a few moments of wisdom, but mostly it dragged along without holding my interest. I felt myself vaguely smiling and nodding without really listening as I read.

One of the things I want to do is to drive to Prudhoe Bay in Alaska. This sojourn from Manhattan to Alaska and back provides an insight of what one might encounter on that trip. If you have ever wanted to take an RV and go see America this is a must read for you.
This book was a real escape when I was overcommitted and ridiculously stressed. The first half is laugh out loud funny. The second is more reflective about life priorities.

viewed from my standpoint as a lower middle class citizen, this book seemed yuppified. nice read, i guess.
I really wanted to like this book, but the writing just didn't hold my attention.
Inpsired me. Not that I can do it now but I like thinking abut it!
