Read in April, 2009

I LOVED THIS BOOK. I loved Theroux's ruminations on humanity, aging, politics, commercial development and overpopulation. Contrary to several other reviewers, I found him totally likeable.
The writing is SO good. Lovely images and excellent vocabulary. I learned a few new words and looked up others I recognized, but never really could define. It's been a long time since I had the need for that enjoyable process.
The travel stories had me entranced well into the night for hours past my usual "lights out".
I can't wait to read more of Theroux's writing.
