This book was not as I expected, having read Naroow Dog, I expected similar. This is in some way but it is not Narrow Dog. I listened to this book not realising who Timothy Spall was, until I looked him up. This is very much about people, feelings, and places. It has made me want to visit parts of England I have never been, it has also made me want to live on a boat more than ever.
I was not expecting the story of Timothys illness, and at first I was a bit put off as I bought the book thinking it was about the boat journey. However once I got used to the paragraphs of emotion I settled down to enjoy was a great story. This book made me cry and it made me smile, I was sad when the journey ended and the book finished, my escaping had to end.
This is a story of two peoples love for each other and their family and their love of a boat and this country. The journey is just part of that story
This book as it claims is not Paul Theroux revisited, but it is a very good enjoyable escape to parts of Greta Brittain
