    I have read every non-fiction that Theroux has written. He has allowed me to go places i will never get to travel to, partly because of the world situations now. I loved this book! It is honest and raw and an eye opening account of modern South African and Angola. The travel brochures I view are sanitized by the companies. As the author said, his books will be and are already historical accounts of worlds past. All I can say is wow!!

    Paul Theroux is my favorite travel writer so this was a tough on

    Paul Theroux is my favorite travel writer so this was a tough one to read. Though he has toured Africa many times before, he muses that this may be his last and that alone was a sad thing to read. The subject matter was also heart rending in its detail of crushing soul destroying poverty. The greed of the dictators running the countries he traveled was also very sad to read. All and all a sad book but touching.

    Theroux started out as a Peace Corp volunteer in Africa, teachin

    Theroux started out as a Peace Corp volunteer in Africa, teaching in schools there for six years so he already knew the place but it has changed. He is seeing the country side empty creating massive slums on the edge of towns. He is appalled by the conditions while the politicians bilk the resources of the mineral rich countries and live luxurious lives. This is one of his most poignant travelogues and is one not to miss.
