it was amazing
bookshelves: autobiography

Its official, John Simpson is my complete and utter hero, my Indiana Jones, the person who's job I would like to have more than anyone else's (though i would be too scared to do it) and my inspiration for all my possible future career ambitions! The ultimate travel book (where hasn't this guy been to?), Simpson is brilliant at capturing scenes and bringing them to life, whether it is staying in grotty hotels, bluffing his way through immigration on numerous occasions without a passport, interviewing dictators, chatting to drugs barons, having tea with MI5 or buying carpets. Some really jaw dropping stuff in there that they'd never tell u on the BBC!
