Now I'm getting ready to offer this on an audio vbb, and I see I failed to journal after reading~ smack me with a wet noodle. I listened to it right away and LOVED it! Then I loaned it to a friend for awhile, and it has sat on my shelf since then, waiting to be passed on.

While there is much I would love to see and experience in China, after listening to Troost's book, I've decided it is not somewhere I care to visit....I simply would not be able to cope with the total lack of personal space. And as a vegetarian, food would be difficult as well. LOL.

btw, I enjoyed the book enough to copy it onto my hard drive to listen again in the future.

Going to start listening to this tomorrow. I have big hopes for this book.

Journal Entry 9 by wingbooklady331wing at Cape Coral, Florida USA on Monday, January 25, 2016
Finished the book tonight. What I enjoyed about the book was that he went to China knowing (what he says) very little about the country, so he saw it from fresh eyes. I had two thoughts: 1) the author was brave to travel to places that weren't tourist places or on tours, especially with not knowing Chinese and 2) his wife must be a saint to let him go alone for so long.

Now, to find a new home for the book.

I finished listening to this book over a week ago and haven't had time to journal. An interesting book. After listening to the author's adventure, I'm not sure that I am interested in visiting China. The overpopulation, crowding, and food were turnoffs for me. I don't think I would be adventurous enough to go on my own to a country I know little about and where I don't speak the language.
