    " Some of the travel tales were a pure pleasure to read, others were mediocre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 11/29/2013

    " This book sounds like a great idea, but I found that the stories were not all that compelling. After reading the first couple, I leafed through the rest, but did not find a lot that I thought were a great read. Maybe I had higher expectations? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 8/12/2013

    " Great book to dip in and out of .. great selection from some of my fav writers and others I hadn't heard of. I enjoyed about 80% of the tales "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen Pomes | 8/9/2013

    " The writing was good, the stories...some good, some not. Overall, not a book I would recommend buying. Borrow it from the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine | 7/18/2013

    " Uneven quality, but overall pretty good. I love travel literature almost -- almost -- as much as I love travel. "

    " Great collection of short stories. Perfect for subway trips. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill Dephillips | 6/27/2013

    " Very inconsistent but has a few gems. Many are not stories so much as anecdotes. My favorites were Joyce Carol Oates, DBC Pierre, and Frances Mayes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cherie | 2/21/2013

    " A great read as the authors have a passion for travelling. Although, a nasty typo in one of the first stories was annoying. "

    " Some great (and not so great) short stories from fantastic authors. I really enjoyed it and, as with any book of essays, if you don't like the tale you're reading you know the next one is only a few pages away! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie Benton | 11/28/2012

    " Couldn't get into this one. Read through a number of short stories and eventually stopped reading all together. "
