Love her style of writing and down to earth approach to the people she encounters. Bought it because of the motorbike links but would have read it anyway. Easy to read- great escapism for the vicarious traveller.

Although Pryce is a bit too self-deprecating and chatty for me, her narrative about crossing Africa alone on her motorbike was a fun and entertaining read. The parts where she's going it alone through DRC and Angola are especially good reading, as everyone I've ever met who's done it never mentions regret or terror. Pryce, to her credit, tells the truth.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT! No woman does motorcycle travel writing better than Lois. She is my hero. I can't believe she rode her motorbike through Africa! Both her books are awesome and I love her sense of humor. Motor on Lois! I can't wait until her next adventure.

Since I don't tend to travel so much, I love reading about others that do.

This was a great book, gave you a good sense of what it was like to travel as she did through Africa.

I did find myself getting a bit worried for her at times and must say she is braver than I.

Nice taste of Africa.

Though offering a light and somewhat superficial account of the conditions of the places she visits, it is still a very fine book in describing adventure.
