    Wonderful Travel Novel Written In A Frank Way

    I loved this novel! It's written in a frank and honest way. You feel like you are seeing things through the eyes of Johnny, who is filled with idealism and love of Europe. His particular perception of Germans and the negative treatment that they receive from Jews for being 'Nazis' was heart-warming. Today's Germans have done nothing wrong, and the reader sees this point in one episode. This novel is particularly great for those who are interested in insightful reading of Dutch and Dutch-American culture.

    Below par

    The style adopted by Kim is excessively verbose with very little descriptive information about the sites of interest in the Netherlands. The story tends to drag on and takes a long time to get anywhere. The main character in the story, Johnny, comes across as a philistine with extreme views i.e. they are anti-semitic. Johnny appears not to be interested in sampling the local cusine and sticks to fast food. The novel is full of errors e.g Rembrandtplatz instead of Rembrandtplein. If you want to read a good travel novel giving insight into the Netherlands then I recommend that you give this one a miss!
