Boy was I wrong.
"Honeymoon" took me for a ride, through California politics and business, then to the altar where Franz, the author, got dumped. Instead of becoming a sour puss, he took Kurt, his estranged brother on his non-refundable honeymoon that lasted for two years. Together they reconnected and shared their dispatches to a bunch of envious desk jockeys back home. Their grandmother gave them the ultimate approval--she was the glue.
I get weird responses whenever I recommend this book to my male buddies, especially Marines. But I'll continue to do so because it's funny, it's personal and it's adventurous. Live a little. Life is short. Never look back. Look for the movie and a sequel in the near future.
So off he goes around the world with his brother and we learn more about his character: If you aren't a member of elite lounge in the airport, just brazen your way in--you're male, good looking, have a high end watch, and you're white. No problem! There's a long line at customs--two hundred people. Just barge your way to the front and cut in. No problem! He screws women in cultures about which he is totally ignorant and then is offended if they a)ask for money or b) stick around after he is bored (which is soon). No problem!--he just blows them off. Beggars? No problem!--after all they're all fakes, right? He gives numerous hints for making fun of them, getting rid of them, etc. everything but giving them anything.
He loves Africa: the people are suffering horribly but they're still cheerful, still have some fun. Perfect! It means it's no problem!
I find it discouraging that no other reviewer seemed bothered by this stuff.
As another reviewer said, don't judge the brothers because they have money. They had fun....how many of us can say that we just had a wonderful and fun experience (for 2 years)? Their travel into and insight on lesser known countries was so interesting. The way the brothers reconnect is inspiring.
Hopefully I will be able to travel vicariously through the brothers again and again.
Lastly, Annie made a BIG MISTAKE!

This was an amazing travelogue of many countries in an amusing, conversational style. I highly recommend Wisner's book.Published 3 months ago by maureen
I read this years ago before my own divorce and enjoyed it then, but it took on new meaning in my post-divorce world. I, too, went on a journey after the abrupt end to my marriage. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Patty Blue Hayes
