What the Critics Say

"The title is an apt description of both Fraser’s travels—which include jaunts to Italy, Provence, and Rwanda described in evocative, lush prose—and her frame of mind over the course of the eight years that her winning coming-of-middle-age memoir spans." (Booklist)

"Even as her journey turns into an emotional roller-coaster, Fraser’s intimate and inspiring tale delivers a life-expanding embrace of the planet’s everyday pleasures and unpredictabilities." (National Geographic Traveler)

    "A travelling book?"

    The book is amusing and won't make you bored but i doubt it has anything to do with travelling or discovering one's self ... it's a book about how the author is so desperate to find a man and a describtion of her affairs ... there is no information about the places she goes to ... nothing about her journey of self discovery (which was non existant) ... she is a woman who can afford travel ... very stubborn and doesn't seem to want to learn from her mistakes ... and keeps going on and on about men ... she is so dependant on men for someone who describes herself as a feminist ...
    i found in some parts of the book that she had no respect for "certain" cultures ... for example she was harrassed by a man in egypt .. so she speaks ill of muslims and egyptian men and culture ... but then she was raped in samoa ... yet she considers this to be a matter that isn't related to the country and the people (which is true)... this "seasoned" traveller strikes me as the "average" American TOURSIT (no offense intended)
    I am someone who loves to travel and i consider my self foot loose ... so i was really angered discovering that she travels because it's what she does (even though she doesn't say it plainly) ... all she wants is to get married and have children ... very strange for someone who keeps reminding us - because we tend to forget - that she is super adventerous and strong ...
    In a travel book i really missed the travel part ... other than the food and men the whole travel thing is nearly non - existant ...
    i don't want to be harsh ... but don't bother with her book ...

    "Fabulous Book!"
    What made the experience of listening to All Over the Map the most enjoyable?

    This is a great book about a middle aged woman who discovers the meaning of her life by traveling as a freelance writer all over the world.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I will definately listen to this again.


    Any additional comments?

    Great inspirational book for women who are not married and have no children.
