I guess whining and self-depricating wit is not my thing. It just makes me ill. I'm not going to finish this one and will be sending it on to NeedMoreZoloft as part of a relay. I hope you enjoy it more than I did!

- Emily Barr's irrepressible first novel follows the trials and tribulations of Tansy, a Londoner who leaves behind her horrible boyfriend, too-trendy friends, and hotshot media job to find herself a continent away.

Adrift in the wake of her long-suffering mum's death, Tansy hopes her modest inheritance will help cast her in the role of glamorous "Englishwoman Abroad," as she flits from Vietnam to China. Instead, she finds ungrateful locals who treat her like the tourist she is, a climate that's hell on her skin, and a motley group of grimy back packers she likes more than she'll ever admit. But when blond Englishwomen in Asia start turning up dead, what began as a grand adventure suddenly becomes a real-life murder mystery . . . and blond Tansy wonders if she'll live long enough to tell the tale of her travels.

I am thinking of going to India and I thought this book was about backpacking and having fun and I was in for a surprise. While Tansy got on my nerves, I loved reading about her experience as a backpacker in South-East Asia. I think the mystery part was not well handled and that it was really hard to love Tansy as a character, nonetheless, the other characters made up for this flaws and Backpack was truly an enjoyable book.

thanks NMZ for sharing!
