It is an easy and interesting read. My only complaint is that Tim hasn't yet found his story telling voice, so it reads a bit flat and doesn't fully capture your imagination. Despite that, it is a worthwhile read and I would recommend it.

While I freely acknowledge I'm no author myself and have tremendous respect for those who do actually write a book, this is a commercial venture so I do want to review it as honestly as possible. I did manage to get through it, but I was left feeling very dissatisfied and as though no connection was made with the author as a person. I wanted to know the answers to questions -how did they feel? What were the doubts? How did they get on with each other? How was their interaction with the people around them? All these questions were never raised, never mind being answered. What did come from the book was a never ending series of generic descriptions of "We got up. We cycled through [insert country or region]. We ate [insert food]. We made camp at [insert camping area]."
I'm extremely surprised and puzzled by how many glowing reviews this book received as I gave this book to my neighbor and a friend -both of whom enjoy travel books immensely and without letting them know what I thought about it - and they echoed almost identical criticisms. If you can peek inside the book to see how it's written, do so. It may save you some money.
