Format: Paperback
"Off the Beaten Path" is the sole pioneer in the unexplored literary galaxies powered by Nicholas Pardini's atypical style of storytelling and conveying information. Nicholas Pardini's life changing novel is a fresh breath in the choked and strangled world that society calls literature. The powerful syntax immersed me into Nicholas's travels and drew me into his tales as if I was there as one of his travel companions and experienced all the excitement and joy as well as the hardships and difficulties that he uniquely experienced. When I want to compare Nicholas's writing ability, only master wordsmiths and expert linguistic artisans such as Shakespeare, J.D. Salinger, and Charles Dickens come to mind. With his eloquent control of the English language, the reader is not pulled into the story but yanked with such a force that a tear in the space time continuum is formed. Each word that Nicholas uses is specially handpicked for the purpose to convey his worldly wisdom with an explosive theatrical flair with a gripping hol on the reader's attention.

If you are looking for an immersive experience, forget IMAX or 3D movie or Virtual Reality, all you need is a few hours with this meticulously crafted timeless art and you will never want to snap back to reality. This single piece of literature, in my professional opinion, is the beginning of the second Renaissance.

Format: Paperback
Nicholas Pardini's Off the Beaten Path is a riveting tale of heroism, daring ventures, and inspirational actions. The exciting adventures that Nicholas Pardini undertakes almost seem as if this is a fictional account of his experiences but the fact that it is an accurate log of Nicholas' experiences makes it just that more amazing. After reading this novel cover to cover, Nicholas is not the only individual that undergoes spiritual and mental growth from these experiences, but the reader becomes much wiser from Nicholas' priceless advice. One can tell that the author is extremely wise and intelligent from the crystal clear syntax, and strategically places short sentences that places emphasis on the parts that he deems important. Akin to Gary Paulsen's Hatchet ,the short and simple sentences are what make this story unique while the eccentric logical flow throughout the novel is what kept me on the edge of my seat just wanting to know where Nicholas' thoughts were going to jump to next. In all, an excellent read that I must recommend to anyone and everyone of all ages.

Off the Beaten Path is an exhilarating adventure that takes you to the far reaches of the globe. Nick's powerful prose and gripping narative puts you right in the heart of his epic journey. You can smell the dusty streets of South America, marvel at the grandeur of the Vatican, and taste the fine delicacies of France.

Nick, I implore you to write profesionally. Such a monumental talent would be wasted staring at excel sheets and working with macros all day.

Format: Paperback
this account written by a college student seems like the perfect source to augment your
study abroad, or travel time in Europe. Provides an entertaining account of what to do,
but keeps it interesting with a story-like method of describing the best that Europe
has to offer.

Oddly, I am enjoying reading this poor example of a travel book. Cannot possibly have been written by a UC student, or any English speaking college student, for that matter. The very personal account by this twenty-one year old introvert engaged me and hurt my heart. I went to Europe for a summer when I was his age and had the most exciting and memorable trip of my life. Still, there were moments when the "black dog" pursued me too. OFF THE BEATEN PATH needs an editor.
