    "Not exactly a travelogue"

    This is my first review. In spite of being an avid reader and world traveler for decades I have not ever felt moved to vent or express until now. Mr. Katakis' travelogue or whatever he intended it to be was definitely not what I expected. It is the indulgence of a far leftwing liberal who actually went as far as to leave the US after Bush's election or the Iraq War declaration or whatever. (I remember a lot of people who threatened to do that, gosh somebody actually did?) I wanted a traveler's book maybe to tell me about the few places I have yet to see. Instead I got the "arrogant American liberal" book whose snipey little remarks reveal a childish attitude that people can be all good or bad (or at least Bush and Cheney can be all bad), that his fellow Americans traveling abroad are embarrassing to him, and that he has some kind of talent for reading his book - sorry maybe it would have been a little bit more bearable if read by a professional. Note to author: I did not support Mr. Bush or Mr. Obama with my vote, but I don't view either of them as evil people, actually I think they both are admirable, probably very honest, intelligent people just with different convictions from mine, and forced into making difficult decisions in difficult times. Maybe when you grow up to be an adult you will realize that life and people are more complicated than the way you would like us to believe. I have all Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama's books, and although they are self-serving, they are more generous to others in their writings than you are.
    And Michael Palin shame on you for misleading me in the introduction. Your books, unless I recall incorrectly, were not bashers but entertaining travel fare.
