This book is about how an American guy ends up driving from the Central Africa Republic all the way to North Africa. Suffice it to say that everything that can go wrong does. I've had a lot of personel experience in Cameroon and I can say that everything that happened to this guy didn't sound that far fetched.

  • Loved this story of a cross-continent trek through Africa. I enjoyed the humor and the sense of reality of the account. The author weaves in political and cultural details bringing to light the different flavors of the countries the travelling pair crosses. I heard it as a book on tape first which I highly recommend. It really puts you on the road with the travellers. When I had to return that to the library I got the book to finish it.

  • This book was a staggering disappointment to me. I have traveled to Africa seven times in the past ten years, and I have also undertaken considerable overland driving... having driven a British Rally car most of the way across the Sahara, among other trips. Seeing Steven's book and the positive reviews, I eagerly ordered it. By the end of the first thirty pages I was almost ill with anger and frustration. I don't know about the other reviewers, but this book reflects very little of the reality of the Africa which I have experienced. And heck, I lived in Nigeria, where Stevens was 'afraid' to go.
    Briefly put, this book is nothing more than a conglomeration of negative stereotypes about Africa and Africans. The question is... where did Stevens manage to go so wrong? It is possible that he is simply playing to popular stereotypes about Africa in order to find a ready audience. Alternately, he is very impressionable and took the ramblings of his expatriate hosts as gospel and never really got to know any Africans All too often, he looks to expatriates for "explanations" of African conditions and to Africans as a source of comic anecdotes. Don't read this book to learn about Africa. Read this book to learn just how vain, racist and isolated many (certainly not all) expatriate communities are. I know people who have lived for years in Africa, but who have rarely traveled beyond their homes or out of the circles of expats who sit in bars and make fun of Africans. They generally know very little about their new "home."
    Either way, this is a truly abominable book -- right down there with David Lamb's _The Africans_ on the list of books by people who have been to Africa and not really come to understand a thing.

  • I read a lot of Africa memoirs. My biggest problem with Mr. Stevens work is that it felt a little dated, but such is the way of the world. Other than that, it was quite an interesting read, and a lovely tale of traveling Africa over land.

  • Great book, many laughing moments.

  • a book required for school,very interested and it actually gave me a great grade..my teacher was amazed that I was able

    to get it when no one else could.

  • hilarious, interesting, surprising

  • Received exactly what I anticipated.

  • Wonderful read!
