really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, memoirs

I am off to China in 7 weeks time so am reading this to get another's story of the land
Its very readable and rather amusing


I really enjoyed this book. Evans has an amusing way of talking about travel and it often felt like she wrote the kinds of things i would think and say. I liked the fact thather tale of travelling through China felt so real - she had wonderful times and really horrid times, just like a traveller actually has. So often it seems that travellers feel the need to either have had the most amazing time ever, or tohave hated the entire trip. Life seldom works like that and it was great to read a book which seemed to tell the truth.

I am off to China and other South East Asian countries for a 7 week trip in just inder two months and Evans' book has excited and warned me in equal measure

I certainly picked up some tips and some ideas of thinsg to do.

I'll read more of Evans' travel books in the future - i thoroughly enjoyed this one
