The resulting book is a slim, humorous and easy read. Sadly, I found it rather trivial and, more often than not, just plain boring. Maybe this is due to the fact that there don’t seem to be any vivid characters in MW’s writing. Or did I forget them all? Or maybe I didn’t like the fact that it all sounded like so much „fun”. Either way it didn’t appeal to me.
not intense at all
If you are looking for an intense story about a vacation from normality, please read Michael Holzach, not this.
