'I couldn't put it down, literally couldn't put it down... A cracking autobiography. It's so diverse, it's beautifully written. It's a real page-turner...The best autobiography of anyone under 50 I've ever read.' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2 PRAISE FOR SIMON REEVE Top 5 Sunday Times Bestseller 'TV's most interesting globetrotter' Independent 'The craziest (or bravest) man on TV' Mail on Sunday 'Like all the best travellers, Reeve carries out his investigations with infectious relish, and in the realisation that trying to understand the country you're in is not just fascinating, but also hugely enjoyable' Daily Telegraph 'Simon might just be the best tour guide in the world' The Sun * * * * * * * * * The inspiring memoir from TV traveller Simon Reeve's life of amazing adventures in over 120 countries and the most remote and extreme corners of the planet. TV adventurer Simon Reeve has journeyed across epic landscapes, dodged bullets on frontlines, walked through minefields and been detained for spying by the KGB. His travels have taken him across jungles, deserts, mountains and oceans, and to some of the most beautiful, dangerous and remote regions of the world. In this revelatory account of his life Simon gives the full story behind some of his favourite expeditions, and traces his own inspiring personal journey back to leaving school without qualifications, teetering on a bridge, and then overcoming his challenges by climbing to a 'Lost Valley' and changing his life ... step by step.

If you like Simon‘s TV programmes then this book is for you. Nearly half of the book covers his life before he started travelling for the documentaries but was equally as interesting. He‘s done a lot that I‘d perhaps briefly read about before, but the detail is fascinating. (No spoilers here!)

The second half of the book covers his travels only up to the Equator series so there‘s more to come - I‘ll definitely be reading the next book.

RachelO Thanks Helen -sounds intriguing! I‘ll look it out. 2w

Picked this up from the library last night - thought I might at least make a start on it for #nfnov. I *really* want to finish The Romanovs though as well....

I‘m hoping hubby will also read this - he‘s only got into books in the last year or so and hasn‘t had much luck with NF, but he seems quite keen on this one....

Oh, and hubby put the log burner on for me this morning at 7am before he went to work... guess where I‘ll be found today?! 📚

TrishB Sounds like a good plan 😁 2w
