Editorial Reviews

Review

The prose of his travel writing is... economical, descriptive and rarely repetitive, making for a fluid, compulsive and engrossing read. ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS Palin does his job as a travel writer very well indeed. He knows how to entertain the reader at first, resists any temptation to lecture, then builds up a slow boil of interest before teasing out some answers through some skilful interviewing. The resulting mosaic of opinions draws out a fascinating composite picture of a nation. -- Barnaby Rogerson THE INDEPENDENT Michael Palin's Brazil is a good primer, written in the same chatty style as he uses in the television series THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

A self-confessed dromomaniac (travel addict), he has written books to accompany his seven very successful travel series, Around the World in 80 Days (1988), Pole to Pole (1991), Full Circle (1995), Hemingway Adventure (1999), Sahara (2001), Himalaya (2003) and New Europe (2007) all available in paperback from Orion. Himalaya was the No 1 bestseller for 11 consecutive weeks. www.palinstravels.co.uk

I have read every single travel book of Michael Palin. This book ranks among his best: well written as usual, informative, insightful, compassionate and a marvelous sense of self-deprecating humor. A wonderful read and summary of the great physical, ethnic and cultural diversities of Brazil. I have been to Brazil three times, and this book brought me insights that I was not aware of. I look forward to more of Palin's books

If you're into Michael Palin's travel shows you'll love this book. Excellent companion to the TV series. Great photos. If you want to take an imaginary vacation without leaving your home you can do it with this book. Very informative on Brazil and their culture. Loved it. Ty

Unusual angles in each location, with interesting characters. Each description makes one
want to experience that particular area of Brazil. Still reading it and hoping it will not end.
