The author of this book planned his 3 month trip round Madagascar. It wasn't easy as the roads are not good, public transport virtually non existent. 2 small railway lines. This is not the Madagascar of the glossy holiday brochure, this is the real island with real people. Dirt roads that get swept away in the rains, transport in high wheeled converted lorries, often braking down. I loved every minute of this book. Real travelling and exploring. He must be a nice guy as people did help him in spite of his lack of French and non existent Malagasy. He managed to go from North to South, East to West, through rivers and up mountains. Loved the Mangoes on the trees, eat with the locals. He managed to see lots of different animals, lemurs especially. Birds and insects galore. Real stuff. This is a proper guide to an island and a well written story. I loved it. Jocelyn Garvey, A LoveReading Ambassador
