did not like it
Read in February, 1983

Theroux has a tendency to compare foreigners to animals and demean foreign cultures. His writing reminds one of 19th century Great Britain which would make him a 20th century Rudyard Kipling wannabe. He certainly has earned quite a bit of money selling books but his compass is off kilter.
