To be fair I probably didn t do this book justice in the way I read it It s been what I call a bathroom book nuff said Basically it s just been dipped it into as when eg if my current read was too big to read in the bath or while I decided what to read next conseuently it s been read intermittently over a few weeksThat said it s an easy book to pick up down Gorman s writing is on the whole easy to read one or two of his factual paragraphs went on a bit for me while it s amusing it s not laugh out loud funny well not for me anyhow with his encounters with eccentric locals being the most entertaining parts I would have liked a few photos of the trips people he met but I found a few here On the whole an amusing enough read

Read & download America Unchained America Unchained Characters ↠ 102 The plan was simple Go to America Buy a second hand car Drive coast to coast without giving any money to The Man™ What could possibly go wrongDismayed by the relentless onslaught of faceless American chains muscling in where local businesses had once thrived Dave Gorman set off on the ultimate American road trip in search of the true independent heart. The biggest draw in this story for me was to get to the end and learn if the author really was able to accomplish his mission However it turns out that the journey was pretty interesting in itself I m sure there s a moral there somewhere something along the lines of the destination not being as important as the journey Nonetheless I enjoyed reading about all of the unbranded Mom and Pop hotels they stayed in and restaurants they ate in It s nice know that uirky spots like that still exist in the US I also enjoyed reading about the many acts of kindness the author was shown by the people he came across in his journey It kind of makes me happy to know that we Americans aren t as bad as foreigners make us out to be P The one thing that did annoy me was how much they obsessed over gas and finding an unbranded gas station It was actually the most vital yet most difficult part of their journey so it seems pretty stupid to me that they picked a car made in 1970 that only gets 15 miles to the gallon to make a 3000 mile cross country journey Every time they had car trouble or were on the verge of running out of gas I was thinking well DUH So whereas the journey might have been fun for them in that kind of a car in my opinion it definitely added unnecessary cost and stress Overall though this book was fun to read and I enjoyed learning about places in my own country that I ve never visited and reading about places that I have already visited
