Community Quote

... "The Wrong Way Round" by Peter Moore is one of these books. I have for some time been avoiding this author's books having read a couple of reviews. Don't get me wrong, the reviews were not unfavourable; my reason for rejecting the books was that the reviews contained too many references to ... Read review

While I am there, I am regularly bemoaning the fact that so few new travel writing books get added to Waterstones cracking "three for two" offer. As a result of having exhausted most of the meagre selection, this I have recently bought a couple of books I had previously turned my ..." Read review

Not a good read

AdvantagesNot too long with some pictures.Parts of journey done by bus which was very interesting.

Disadvantages Narrative style a bit too simplistic and the journey details are often sketchy.

"...5 chapters of less of the book , The Wrong Way Home. By the time I got to the part where he simply states that 'Esfahan is a beautiful city' without any supporting statement I was tired of the book.

I found it hard to believe some of the details in the book which ..." Read review

The wrong way round, a book worth reading

Advantagesvery witty, imformative,reader really gets the feeling they're there with the writer

Disadvantagesin all honesty id say nothing negative about this book, enjoyed readin it

"...quest to travel round by the world....with one rule.....no plane travel is allowed. The adventures he has, the people he meets and the funny witty way he describes events makes me think hes as great a travel author as the better known Bill Bryson. A variety of countries are included, such as places in asia so theres something in there for travel fans, no matter what part of the world youre interested in. He travels overland from London to ..."

A delightful way to timetravel,
Closely printed pages are not the easiest to read. (*)
Great photos, a must for travel or photography fans
Some poor maps (*)
Lovely photos and intersting
Hard to find specific places as not much logic in the set out (*)
Fascinating, informative and entertaining history

Skims the surface, is a little too earnest in places (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (T)
A great combination of humour, sightseeing, social commentary and invective
Not enough on the western states (*)
Interesting, personal insights, non-judgemental
None - unless you pay the list price, which might feel a little steep. (*)
Very, VERY detailed; excellent tips and advice; good lot of maps; very useful for before travel and during
None I can see - perhaps may be *too* detailed for some? (*)
Some interesting information
No pictures (*)
profound knowledge of German issues
not everyone has the same kind of humour (*)
