Editorial Reviews


I spotted this book on the Lonely Planet website and as I'd been round Malaysia and to Bali I thought it was worth a look. I haven't read many travel books but those I have seem to be a bit 'Michael Palin' or a bit too worthy. This was new to me - an honest account of the challenge of backpacking - haggling, getting on buses and some great observations - but also the feeling of discovering things for the first time. The book is funny, exciting and made me want to get on the next plane out there and even climb a volcano. Great book. --Amazon.co.uk

'An open, amusing and exciting account of the reality of backpacking and the wonders of Indonesia.' --The Lombok Times

"Playing with Fire is fascinating and inspirational and will entice any reader with wanderlust to Indonesia to begin their own adventures." --Waterfrontonline.co.uk
