Allen's writing style makes for an enjoyable read. The non-chronological storytelling isn't as disruptive as it might seem. Our memories often jump from point to point returning to something as we remember another aspect of the story. The story comes across as talking to a friend over a series of evenings while sharing a few pints.
It must have been one hell of a ride as Allen is sometimes brutal about himself and his early approach to the trip. That, to me, indicates a person who learned a lot the hard way. Reading his current Website / blog indicates he did indeed learn a great deal
I haven't finished the story as yet but I'm curious to see how the grand world tour by bicycle, complete with big name retailer backing, fell apart. I have passed the point in the story where one of the three jolly riders leaves to go back to his girlfriend. The film indicated the second rider leaves for a similar reason. Ultimately, all three abandon the ride for a woman . . . which I suppose is a spoiler . . . oops!
Still, it's a good read and an interesting insight into one man's travels by bicycle.
the book is an easy read, full of English humor and auto-irony. It tels a story which is bought outside and within. it is not what you would call an "adventure book", it is more like a diary.
i also like the way by which the present time and the past, i.e. the previous parts of Tom's journey meld into the books texture.
Tom Allen is a good writer. His narrative is about how superficial differences hide the fact that humans share more than meets the eye. And that the edges of our world is the centre of another.
Certainly worth reading. A book I recommend heartily
