Amazon page Synopsis
Campervan Kama Sutra Outback Australia, with a camper trailer, three kids and a dog.* This true story tells of one family’s hilarious journey through Australia’s rugged outback countryside. Our intrepid adventurers work their way through numerous mishaps, including, but not limited to, an ill-advised river crossing, an inappropriately packed roof rack and some truly horrible singing.
During their journey they stumble across a motley assortment of characters such as a confused check-in clerk, a grey nomad with an eye for detail regarding torches, and several Crazy Germans. While reading Campervan Kama Sutra, you’ll not only fall in love with Australia’s vast, ever-changing countryside, but you’ll also delight in the tragicomedy that arrives with unerring regularity. You’ll laugh until something hurts.
*P.S. There was no dog. Three (2.5) Boundless Stars
This is a story written from the dad’s point of view; he brings readers along while he prepares for, and journeys out to a challenging road trip to Australia and back home.
He shares every detail of this trip with his wife and three kids. During all the pleasurable and not so pleasurable times on the trip, readers quickly learn to of his dry sense of humor.
While reading Campervan Kama Sutra, it is quite obvious this is written by someone with above average intelligence; unfortunately, this also means that not all readers will be able to relate to the story, or the offbeat jokes. While I enjoyed this book, and laughed at most of his antics; at times, it read as an educational text. Granted, I did learn some interesting Australian facts, which I enjoyed; I always love learning. On the other hand; when I wasn’t learning, I was extremely bored.
The novel was overly wordy and mundane most of the time. How many times do readers need to know the details of every meal? Or the details of every car issue? Due to the fact that this was written well, with no grammar or spelling issues to take away from the smoothness of the read, I rate Campervan Kama Sutra with 2 ½ boundless stars; “It was good, but could have been better.”
