"wayward" is well-written and clever. packed with zingers that had me truly laughing out loud, but tempered with moments of meaningful reflection that make it both funny and inspiring.
so many great lines. i haven't figured out how to use the highlighter function on my kindle, so my only regret from reading this book is that the screen is now covered in neon yellow marker.

There are tales in this book that will make you cry.
But I guarantee you won't put it down till you've read it all!
A wonderful travel book.
While being uproariously full of wit, Wayward has it's deep moments. Gates' takes you inside the mental dialogue of someone trying to find comfort in being a prototype in a mass-produced world.
This book is important because it documents the growth of a new, talented writer. Through the course of reading, the audience will notice that Gates starts out as his own mix of Anthony Bourdain and Augusten Burroughs. Over the course of his travels he manages to find his own genuine voice that can hurl hilarious insults, yet hit you with powerful thoughts on humanity. As the reader's journey ends with Wayward, they are left with an overwhelming question: "When's the next trip?".
