Review: One Dry Season

User Review  - Andrea - Goodreads

This seemed a little slow and wondering to me. Usually that's okay in a travel book, but somehow this writer never seemed to resolve ANYTHING, which got a little boring after a while. Perhaps I was influenced by having read Kingsley's wonderfully witty narrative first. Read full review

User Review  - Rebecca - Goodreads

This book was interesting, but such slow going that I was reading it for six months, then apparently left it on an airplane. Just didn't pull me through! Read full review
