I really loved this book. This is a true adventure much in the vein of Turn Right at Machu Picchu and Lost City of Z. Ed Stafford walked the entire length of the Amazon river for 860 days!! Unreal. He encountered crazy indigenous people, drug trafficking, deforestation, jungle so think it would take hours just move 500 feet, psychological issues dealing with loneliness, depression and exhaustion. Truly remarkable journey that is riveting, engrossing, personable, inspirational and at times funny. He really is an amazing guy.

It seemed to be very monotonous for the author and reader

Expectations met and exceeded in this adventure. Loved the journey from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Felt like I was right there beside him and his guide Cho. As for complaining, he really had a tough time finding food and shelter and dealing with the threat of drug runners and tribes that did not want to see a white man. All this while trying to wite a blog and send updated videos out to his supporters.I also found his impressions on deforestation and other ecological concerns interesting. All around great book for adventure and travel lovers.

The book was ok. just not what i was hoping for. Instead of describing the walk and the surroundings, i feel all he did was complain the whole time. It really didnt pull you into the jungle like i had hoped.

No depth to experience. I never felt what it was like to walk the jungle. I did get alot about walking town to town. Yawn.

Haven't read it yet, but it seems according to its description to have a lot of recap of Amazon Beaming by P. Popescu.
