I enjoyed this book, and I'm ready to go on a trip of my own. Okay, I was ready to go on a trip before I read this book, but this book is making it hard to resist.
The book was funny, but he didn't seem to like many places, and of course I'm upset that his impression of Missouri was based on some rural place in Southeast Missouri. That's like rating a restaurant by its dumpster. The only other criticism I have of the book is that I felt the narrative line tying everything together seemed forced and influenced by hindsight.
