Welcome to BookCrossing and thanks for being a part of World Book Night 2011, the largest book giveaway in history. 1,000,000 specially printed copies of 25 different books changed hands on March 5th 2011 and began their journey from reader to reader. This book is one of them. World Book Night has joined with BookCrossing to help track these books as they travel.

This is a very well written, entertaining and thought provoking book which I read back in 2008. It made such an impression it was my selection in the World Book Night giveaway. This is one of 48 copies I have been entrusted to give away. I hope future readers will record their view of the book and what they do with it as it continues on its travels.

I've been meaning to read this since it came out so it was great to pick this up at the meet, this is on the 1001 books to read before you die list which I'm trying to tackle this year (40 books is my aim), so this should get read quickly and passed on to others doing a similar challenge. Thanks for sharing

With the exception of the last chapter (my eyes were just too tired) I read this all in one sitting. What a fantastic read, I really enjoyed the way that we only heard his side of the conversation, and was never really sure if he was really speaking or just imagining this conversation with the American.
I'll be sending this off as part of the Easter Bunny draw, where it'll travel to Sweeden and hopefully on from there.
Many thanks for sharing this

I didn't have anything which even mildly resembled the books on your wishlist so I picked this as I loved it when I read it - I hope that you enjoy it too. Happy Easter

Just got the book in my mailbox. As I was off to school I didn't have time to look much at it. Though it seems interesting. Thanks a lot for the book and the chocolate!
Edit September 15th 2011:
As I didn't have time to make a journal entry before taking of to China I'll just edit this for my comment about the book.
I really liked it. It was not one of those book you wanted to read all at once, and not the once you feel like you had to pick up again. Still it was a really good read, but as you can understand it took some tome to read it. I actually began in May or something like that and finished in early September. It was very different to most of the books I read and I really liked that it was in this form of telling about his life to a total stranger. If I hadn't got this book sent to me I would probably never have read it, but I'm glad I did. It is a book I would recommend to some of my friends, but I don't think it suits everyone.
