If you enjoyed reading other Boorman books such as Long Way Down, Long Way Around and Race To Dakar you will probably not enjoy this one. This book is a travel log and not a motorcycling adventure as I hoped it would be. In other words : boring.
He writes some excellent stories but unfortunately this is not one of them.

Charley Boorman's starting to establish a reputation as a good travel writer in his own right, having had done several travel documentaries and tie-in books, both with his friend Ewan McGregor and on his own. In this book, Charley travels across Canada, from east to north to west, by various means, getting to know the country, meeting new people and undertaking things he wouldn't have thought he'd be doing. He's got a good, informal sense of style in the way he writes- pretty much the way he talks, and he keeps the reader drawn into the narrative. There's the odd glitch a Canadian would pick up on, mind you, but it's fun to see a foreigner's point of view in this way, visiting your homeland. Well recommended to those who liked Long Way Round and Long Way Down.
