Dark side of "friendly company" trip is here. Bright side too, but not very bright. All of it was in the TV series, but not with such moody contrast. Hm, best and positive travel reports that I've read (not many by all means) was done solo. Makes me think.

Unfortunately too many years have passed since I watched the Long Way Round docuseries to say whether or not this book offered anything new. I will say I probably enjoyed the docuseries more as the distinctions between Ewan and Charley’s personalities are more apparent on television and obviously there’s the visual component. That said though, this book is still worth reading if you enjoy either actor or crave a vicarious road trip.

The book switches back and forth from Ewan and Charley’s points of view, indicating who is speaking at the start of each segment. I have no doubt that these accounts of the trip came from Ewan and Charley, it’s just that the editor or whoever went through and polished things up polished them so thoroughly that Ewan and Charley’s “voices” as well as the few snippets of dialogue often sounded too similar. While Ewan and Charley share similarities like choice of profession, love of motorcycles, etc, I do think they are probably more distinguishable from one another than it tended to feel here.

Like I mentioned it’s been a long time since I watched the television series of this trip, so I also don’t recall whether Ewan and Charley’s whining felt as prominent on TV as it does in this book. During their most recent docuseries trip, maybe because they’re older, they seemed more laid back about things than they do here. There really is a tremendous amount of complaining here for two people who are being paid to go on dream vacation. Sometimes I was like, well, we’re all occasionally guilty of whining about things that aren’t really worth whining over, it’s human, and good for them that they’re willing to include that flawed side of themselves here rather than presenting as perfect, but other times it just really got on my nerves since like I said, they were being paid to go on a dream vacation.

The content of the trip itself, the countries they visit that aren’t places often visited or documented, issues with the bikes, the moments where they reluctantly place their trust in strangers, it’s all interesting stuff, but I think it could have been that much better, had the book gone with slightly different formatting. As is too often the case with many books, there are photo sections rather than interspersing them throughout the book where they could have actually lined up with the timeline of the trip. It also seemed that the appendix in the back thoroughly detailing dates and destinations was so wasted there when I would have appreciated such specific details throughout the book where the sense of time in relation to place was often more vague than I would have preferred.

Seymour Levov, detto "lo svedese", è un uomo che dalla vita ha avuto tutto: bellezza, carriera, soldi, una moglie ex Miss New Jersey e una bambina a lungo desiderata, ma il cui mondo pian piano va in pezzi quando la figlia ormai adolescente compie un attacco terroristico che provoca una vittima. Come è possibile che una tragedia di questo tipo sia accaduta proprio allo Svedese, la persona che per tutta la sua vita ha incarnato il Sogno Americano? Dove ha sbagliato? (fonte: ibs)

I am fine with the fact that I will never ride a motorcycle around the world. Therefore, I'm grateful for this book since I was able to ride along through their adventures. And it certainly was a fun ride.
