Vagabonding Through Retirement: Unusual Travels Far From Our Paris Houseboat

 

 
What a fantastic idea for a book! Who wouldn't want to travel through Europe, with their home base a houseboat in Paris? A can't fail book? Unfortunately, in this case the authors have proved me wrong. The relating of their adventures was painful to digest. They just couldn't flesh out one story satisfactorily before launching into another, unrelated avenue. Sometimes in the same paragraph! Maybe it made sense to the authors, as they were there, but it was extremely painful to try to follow. I am very disappointed that a good editor did not intercept this and send it back for a rewrite. I received this book for an early review from NetGalley, and am sorry to have to write such a disappointing one, but I have to be honest. This is one of the worst books that I have read in a number of years.
