StrangerInAFamiliarLand and I are bluggling. That means we're struggling to fill our blogspace. We're going to issue one another 100-word challenges every few days. Friday: Last Book Read. Read Rene's quick review of Mistress of the Art of Death (Ariana Franklin) at StrangerInAFamiliarLand.com.
Dad, mom and kids trek around the world. Good not great. Dad’s narrative voice read slightly annoying, and he mocked the French one too many times for this reader.
Journey was amazing. Kids were troopers, especially daughter who broke her leg early in trip. Dad repeatedly said they planned for 10 years, but they spent hours on annoyances they could have avoided with 10 minutes of research. (I sound American.)
I marveled at the family’s adventures, felt troubled at my own uber-priveleged place in the world, and vowed to build more travel into our frenzied lives. Solid content, solid writing.
