it was ok
Recommended to Michael by: Colleen McCarthy
Read from January 20 to March 20, 2010

I really wanted to like this book. Some of it was a little interesting, but honestly i would have had a more enjoyable time reading the wikipedia article on Chile.

Example of this book:
I went to have dinner with my friends, we ate shellfish, it was ok.
The next moring i got a shower, it was cold.
The roads were muddy, I rode a bus.
Chile is beautiful.

This book has not begining middle or end, its a list, a poorly written list of things she did in Chile. I don't feel like she had an adventure, because nothing interesting ever happened.

Michael Economy No, Colleen was throwing out some books and said this one was good.

She reads mostly travel books.
