Inspiring!

I loved this book. Alastair is a great author and I really enjoy hearing his books through his own voice. I’ve begun trying some of the microadventures in this book, and spent the night camping in my front yard just the other day, watching the sunrise and enjoying the cold, foggy morning. Read this book and apply it to your own life, you won’t regret it!

Unpleasant narrator and boring

I suppose if you sit on the couch, this could seem interesting, but I think this entire book could be summarized in a couple bullet points. I couldn't continue to listen to a monotonous narration describe dewey mornings, etc.

The author has a blog, maybe I'll skim it for ideas, but the upshot is there are ways to explore the unfamiliar or unknown within a day's travel whether it be by foot, bike, train, or car. Do things at night or overnight in the nearby outdoors.

Since he's located in London, everything he refers to is around London, so that adds to the disinterest.

I'm going to return it since I can't finish listening to it.
