Louisa embarks on a road trip with a guy she meets and falls in love with. She is outside her comfort zone. She describes the landscape and the people wonderfully. What particularly resonated was the being a woman in a man's zone, where you can smell the testosterone. I've been in those places. She described it perfectly. Read it just for the description of how she feels in Kalgoorlie. Well, actually, read it for all of the book, but that particularly struck a chord.

I got half way through the book and when she got to Kalgoorlie Boulder i was so angry on her views on it, that she didnt couldnt have opened her eyes to a bit more then just pub, skimpies and red dirt.

It was a struggle to get through it and now know why i dont read this kind of genre.

I know this is of her opinion of everything in her book and she is a "city girl" but having tunnel vision is not a way to live life!

Great bio of travelling around Australia, having done a lot of road trips with my husband I could relate! But we didn't rough it. Loved this. Very Australian. Highly recommended.

Sweet memoir. Find yourself cringing for Lou at every turn. Very admirable life she lead.

What a drag. So self-indulgent. I think she needs therapy not travel. If I were her, I'd give up the writing. It's no coincidence we haven't seen another book from this author. It's like a bad version of Eat Pray Love.
