      This book had me hooked from the beginning; anyone who starts a book talking about weighing his underwear must have a great story to tell, and he does.

      Enjoyed: the idea, the descriptions of the country he travelled through and the people he met - France is one of my favourite countries, and I'd love to get back there- very evocative and detailed.Disliked- his "grumpy old man" and somewhat condescending asides and comparisons, especially with things as they used to be.Overall, a reasonable travelogue(good cover, by the way).

      I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.This was an amazing written book about ones journey through France. You end up feeling as though you were actually there. I love that there is never a lag in the book or a dull moment. If you ever want to travel to France or just vicariously travel there, I would recommend this book to you!
