I dont know where to start really, this book took me places, the author Danny Bent shares his every thought and moment so frankly with the reader that its like being right beside him on Shirley his lovely friend and companion on a ten thousand mile bike trip from England, across Europe, Russia and Asia to India. That Shirley is a bicycle is something you soon forget, she’s a touchstone and a treasured friend as this kind man leaves behind the known world and forages ever forward into unimaginable adventures and danger and poverty and cold and yet…the book also tells the reader that in all the worst lives and places there is one theme, humans are kind, to read about strangers who live so far below the worst possible Western life sharing their moldy bread and sheep soup with a stranger is to realize there is one common theme to our race, we’re a good bunch Danny tells us this he teaches us this as he learns it, its a huge world and leaving behind the familiar and safe can leave you lonely and hungry and terrified but it can widen your heart and mind and leave you with one unforgettable lesson, people want to be good to each other. In this fine book you are not preached too, Danny is too cool to do that, you are just forced as he is to think and see and grow and at the end of his journey when Danny is covered in flowers I felt that I had been too. I suppose I’m sad as I write this, I wanted to keep on riding across the world with Danny and Shirley forever and hope that I’ll be invited on their next journey wherever it is, no reader could ask for better.
Luke took YGTFTTS with him to celebrate St Georges day at the Nou Camp Barcelona just in case the game sucked….
