Sue Baker's view...

An introspective and dark look at Africa, a third African journey for Theroux and a sad one, at 70, Theroux sees this as his last view of the continent. There has been little progress, corruption; war and poverty still hold sway. This is Africa but not as the tourist sees it, a behind-the-scenes journey as only Paul Theroux can make.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Carol Peace

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.
