Running with the Moon - Jonny Bealby
Running with the moon, a boy's own adventure: riding a motorbike through Africa Jonny Bealby has the ability to transport you to wherever he is on the road, and almost magically he makes you feel as if you are actually involved in the world he's experiencing. With a spin that's a combination of positive thinking and the reality of life in an unforgiving continent, he manages to show Africa at both its worst and its eye opening best. Running with the Moon is a delightfully dense weave of romance, inner reflection, joy and awe. It's written with such frank openness that his words have the refreshing ability to surprise.
At times the book is a boys-own ripping good yarn, but equally it's an awesome education; if you dream of African travels it will affect the way you think. The full story may well make you decide that a seat of the pants adventure through some of the most remote parts of the world is best left to those with hyperactive guardian angels, or to your dreams. Equally, this book could well inspire you to make those final plans and to actually bite the bullet on a departure date. Whichever way it touches you, this is a hard book to put down and I recommend that you make a trip to your local bookstore a priority.
