My least favorite of Roach's books, but still good. This one, more than others, she really lets her own viewpoint color her observations. Roach's writing is at it's best when she's the game observer or participant. Or maybe the issue was more with the narrator who read the entire thing with a note of incredulity and gave certain people ridiculous voices. I mean this is a non-fiction work, yes humorous, but still I could have done without the silly, at times offensive voices.
