What did you like best about Sticky Buns Across America: Back-Roads Biking from Sea to Shining Sea? What did you like least?
I found the author's observations about America to be mostly fair, if not always complimentary. The story was at its best when he was describing individuals met along the road.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The story was at its weakest as the author tried to describe the collective culture he encountered, an activity which he spent way too much time at. His girlfriend accompanied him, but barely merited a footnote. More human interaction, especially a recurring character like his only companion, would have made the story more interesting. Occasionally his line of thought jumped around so it was not clear that the discussion was blending stories from a previous trip into the current one.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator spoke with an irregular pace that was hard to understand. After a few hours of listening, it became easier to follow, but really, is there any reason why the narrator needed to sound like Igor from an old Frankenstein movie?
Was Sticky Buns Across America: Back-Roads Biking from Sea to Shining Sea worth the listening time?
Probably more interesting to a European visiting the U.S. for the first time, than to an American.
