Walking the Himalayas

Following his trek along the length of the Nile River explorer Levison Wood takes on his greatest challenge yet navigating the treacherous foothills of the Himalayas the world's highest mountain range Praised by Bear Grylls Levison Wood has been called the toughest man o I disliked this book so much that when searching for other 1 2 star ratings and finding just a few I started to doubt my skill as a reader But alas I m holding strong with the one starI had reasonable expectations to like this I mean it has travel adventure nature all things that are most enjoyable But no it just doesn t work His characterizations of people are inane and rather simplistic It s like he expected to write certain experiences and meet certain kinds of people and so the narrative formed to that instead of the other way around I d include an excerpt or two as an example but the ebook has already been returned to the library Maybe if I had seen the television series I d have been involved and attuned with him as a narrator And I never rely on the movieshow to carry the book That is sacrilegeWhat really made this a 1 star instead of a 2 star is his writing Like it felt like a high schooler writing a creative essay for a school assignment or something His descriptions are dull and uninventive It took the pleasure out of reading Maybe this seems harsh but I can t stress how bored I was while reading this I would ve DNF d it but I was on a long train ride and it was the only book I had downloaded besides poetry I haven t got phone data
