As the title states, the book begins with Heidi sitting behind her desk (well, no, in the opening pages she’s drinking mojitos in Cuba, but then we move back in time and she’s behind her desk), in what she calls “Cubicle Land”, a rather accurate term. While her job sounds at least somewhat enjoyable (not as horrendous as I had feared it would be from the title), it’s still not her dream job. Working for a start-up is stressful, with directions being changed overnight at the whim of managers and the president, and when a new job opportunity arrives, Heidi goes for it. Even if the job is set in Cuba.
I’ve never been Cuba, and I never really had any interest in going. It’s just not on my list – not like New Zealand is, or Italy is, or Greece, or Egypt, or lots of other countries. But now I’ve read this book, I’ve seen a whole new side to Cuba, and it does spark my interest. I can understand why Heidi keeps coming back for more.
The chapters are short, making this a quick but enjoyable read, and as usual, I enjoyed the author’s humor and clever writing style. And I’d have to say that from all her books I’ve read so far, this is my favorite. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I found it hard to put this book down and thoroughly enjoyed each page. I also found myself feeling as though I was in Cuba, walking the streets, riding in the famous cars, talking to the locals and taking it all in. Only a good writer can make you feel this way, Heidi did so wonderfully in this book.
I highly recommend this book, not just for those wanting to go to Cuba, but for anyone that has a curiousity to learn more and have some adventures along the way!
It's so much fun reading about Heidi's tours, reading about some of the characters in her groups and reading about her experiences getting to know the Cuban culture. Heidi has quite the sense of humor. I found myself frequently laughing through the book.
