Rory Stewart’s The Places In Between
Hi there – just a quick update for the Travel Book Club fans – this week we are enjoying Rory Stewart’s – The Places in Between.
It’s a wonderful travel book and while I initially thought it would be quite serious with its location matter (Afghanistan and surrounding areas), within the first few pages, I was hooked.
Stewart is a cracking writer – this book just flows and I am not ashamed to say that by the end I was both in an emotional heap (!) but also extremely humbled and fascinated by Stewart’s experiences. So often we consider ourselves the superior here in the modern west, but we have lots to learn in understanding such contrasting cultures and histories.
HEADS UP! next week’s book is all about the USA… grab a copy of Dave Gorman’s – America Unchained.
