Not for anyone, but those of us that love the droll wit of the British middle class will like it very much. Cruised the Danube a few years ago and his take was familiar with quirky twists.

I suspect it was a case of high expectations based on liking his other books, but this one seemed as though it were general reminiscences lumped together to fulfill a book proposal.
On finishing this book I hoiked my bicycle out of the shed where it has languished for the past 7 years. My nephew fettled it and I now intend to get into shape and be able to cycle farther than a half mile. Mr. Enfield's beautiful narrative of his cycling travels in Europe are a great inducement to the middle-aged to get out and about, without resorting to lycra or worrying about speed. Thank for a gentle read told with humour and style
Dawdling by the Danube was a easy listen. It is interesting to hear his exploits that are downloaded for the BBC.
I so enjoyed his travel both on the Danube and in Ireland. It is great to hear a man slightly beyond his 20's who takes travelling by bike as a means of transport as the norm. He tells it as it is good and bad.
