5.0 out of 5 starsThe great American roadtrip...offroad...by Brit's!
Reviewed in the United States on September 19, 2019
Phenomenal book, I think I burned through it in a few days. So come back, do the trip and write another longer book about it for our enjoyment! Muchos inspiring, from the journey, the amazing sites this country offers, and to finish my own Jeep to do it myself. Loved hearing the anecdotal quips about our beautiful, seemingly oddball, and often quizzical country as only the British could. Now get outside and see it yourself!
I’m on page 40 and dyin’ because it’s so good! I’m a 63 year old Jeep Girl and all I want to do now (because of this book) is head out in my Jeep on a road trip. The only thing stopping me is that I’m busy reading this and can’t stop. I can’t wait to read about Utah Jeeping, because I’ve been Jeeping there and it’s phenomenal. I recommend this book for anyone with Jeep Fever.
4.0 out of 5 starsNot just for petrol heads - good honest writing

Recent travel-logs seem to be more about the internal journey of the traveller-author, usually at the expense of physical journey. Not so here, this is back to the bones travel writing - raw and honest with no padding cluttering the paragraphs. Descriptive sections are only used when they add something, and the best ones relate to the people these two met along the way ('the human fridge' - my personal favourite), and some of the situations they found themselves in (tornado anyone?).
I found this easy and enjoyable to read, it made me smile too (back to the human fridge), which is no mean feat. Give it a go - you might be surprised.
5.0 out of 5 starsA road trip book with a difference; one that actually really is, worth reading.

I really enjoyed reading this book and managed to finish it in just two sessions, as i was so hooked. The author Alex has a unique writing style that combines a wry sense of humour, an excellent turn of phrase, and an attention to detail of life on the 'Road Trip' road which certainly helps you turn the pages. An all round thoroughly good read which I have no hesitation in recommending.
Really enjoyed this travelogue, from recounting the otherworldly feeling the first time someone from the UK visiting the US always seems to have, the mad dashes across huge miles because the unreal distances and time limits, to the amazing natural beauty of their main destination. It all brought back a lot of nostalgia for me from trips in the States and particularly visiting Utah\Colorado\Arizona a few years after the author's own adventure.
