disappointing considering it was Paul Theroux!
There was one chapter about situations in Africa that was written so clearly, I thought I was back there reliving it but most chapters assumed the reader knew more than, at least, I did and therefore, could not hold my interest.
Set the stage better for each chapter
The narrator didn't have a great deal of substance to use voice inflections and it was mostly reading the yellow pages.
It couldn't be... no plot
Kingdom By The Sea is wonderfully written and narrated. P.T., in other books,. should not assume his audience knows more than they do. More like this!
