"Easy-going Palin's essential niceness and unpretentious ability to relate to anyone from any culture makes him Britain's best-loved travelling companion." (Talking Business)
Micheal Palin's voice and dry humour never ceases to bring interest to this topic. Being a Hemingway fan is not necessary to enjoy this audiobook, but it adds value to know about the man and his stories.
"Personal journey of an icon"
Very relaxing and informative insight into the life of a 20th century icon. Very much a personal journey read in an amiable style which so characterises Palin. Learned some new things but probably the best part was the feeling that you are actually there in each location he visits.
It was all memorable, I loved it.
I can't imagine that the experience would be quite the same without Michael reading it. He leaves room for your mind to imagine without intruding.
It's already a TV series!
I couldn't get through this because of the extremely annoying use of background music that just wouldn't fade out and seemed to go on and on and on. It also seemed to be a 'Think of a Theme' travelogue that are so popular these days but also seem to verge on the utterly pointless. Maybe if you're a big Hemmingway fan you'll find something of interest here, otherwise give it a miss.
