Some excellent titles. Theroux's book I know well because in it he visits a tiny village in Lincolnshire, Barrow on Humber,where I used to live, searching for an elusive old gentleman with a secretive background. Richard Cuthbert Dufill,ex spy.
I'll have to check this title out, looks too good to miss! I recall first hearing about cannibals when I read Robinson Crusoe! Thank you for the comment.
Thank you for the response. Sounds like you're in for an interesting trip! Perhaps a hub or a mini book might come out of your adventure??
Thank you for the comment, appreciate it. I've recently read this book again, after seeing the recent movie, and still think it has great energy. It captures the restless, drifting spirit of the times.
I loved Gerald Durrell's book. His enthusiam for the natural world just jumps out of every page. And he's pretty good at describing Greek history and landscape too! Thank you for the comment.
John Steinbeck's book is a classic. Who would have thought he'd go journeying with a poodle? Thank you.
