Do Travel Writers Go to Hell?

Two words, “who cares?” Put it down and walk away. I was looking forward to reading it, but sadly, this book is boring and self-centered with no redeeming qualities. I pushed myself to the 65 page mark, where our “intrepid” writer is bedding fellow travelers and loaning them money on day one of his adventurous jaunt into Brazil. The plodding, detail-infested, pedestrian tale is too reminiscent of my own travel writing to take any pleasure in.
