really liked it

This book was a good solid read that takes you on a journey with someone who just can't take the standard grind any longer. I have read a few reviews saying it lacked this or didn't move along fast enough here or......

But, from my point of view, it is kind of a character study of geography and society..... and moves forward with no large plot outside of his experiences (did you not read the back cover? Lol). It sort of reminded my of Nepoleon Dynamite after a fashion.....if you liked that movie and it had plot enough for you I don't understand why this book would not also be a winner. I was happy to have read it and look forward to reading more from this writter.

Thanks, Mr. Troost!!
