I bought this as an ebook based on a recommendation from a friend. What a bargain!
My husband and I both found the book delightful, a very personal travelogue with insights into Australia, Thailand, and India.
The author's personal story is compelling, especially her estrangement from work and life in Australia and her move to freedom in Thailand and India.
I also enjoy traveling and it was great fun to read the details of her discoveries and disappointments.
Also just finished reading the rather heated remarks from a reviewer a few months ago. Certainly shows that the book is thoughtful and real, and can provoke a passionate response.
I didn't find anything offensive, but like any travel writer, the author does comment on her experiences and observations. That's why I enjoy travel writing, to see the world through another's eyes.
Looking forward to the next book from the author, on her continuing experiences in Thailand.
Get to work, Michelle!
