    Review: One day Andy Smart decided to do the kind'a thing many dream of doing but would never be so bold, and that is - leave it all behind and travel half way round the world to China. That's how you do mid-life crisis! Having lost his job, Smart had nothing to lose, and from the moment he arrived his adventures were gripping and funny. Scene after scene I was laughing out loud and wondering whether all this really happened (I suspect it did). The dating sequence in particular was quite brillia [...]

    An insightful, madcap jaunt around ChinaThis book is a real genre departure for me but I fancied something different and decided to purchase the first edition containing strong language. The book is essentially the travel diary of a man rapidly approaching middle age who decided to invest his redundancy money back-packing around China looking for adventure. The book was written on the go and the author has remained loyal to his original diary and sequencing without over-doing the editing or sani [...]

    I am so glad I chose this book to download and read. Not only a very useful travel guide but a very humorous account of all the situations the author encountered on his travels.I would definitely recommend this book as the wit and style of the writing has kept me entertained and kept me coming back for more each night.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Not only is it very informative about life in China and some of its neighbouring countries, the author has an appealingly witty and humorous style that carries the story along well. His many ‘Britishisms’ are a treat. After the present-day introduction, we are taken back to three years earlier and the events in the UK that lead Andy Smart to ‘up sticks’ and travel across the world to start a new life in China. The book is written in the style of a diar [...]

    I still think about this book now and about how the author is still out there in China making his way through another slice of life as harrowing and as entertaining as this one. Way to go, Andy - hope you're having a great life wherever you are and whoever you're with. I'm sure you are. You'll always come out on top - trust me. Your spirit is too strong for anything else to happen.
