“Although you may think that a book which deals with political subject matter and a part of the world whose nations most Americans know little to nothing about (and have a difficult time even pronouncing correctly) might be dull and boring. Instead, Rall has written a very interesting and often LOL humorous account that anyone who wants to learn more about this politically unstable region and anyone who likes travel memoirs will enjoy highly.”
And they give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5. Hey, the book may be out for a couple years now but never too late for a review, right? Besides this book remains timely and topical.
