    One thought on “Travels With Myself”

    1. This book containing over sixty very varied pieces of work written by Tahir Shah over the past twenty years, is intended to be a bedside book or a companion on the reader’s own long journey. The writing was inspired by experiences in many parts of the world including Morocco where the author now lives, and the emphasis is on the people he met as much as the places visited. Dedicated to his wife, Rachana, ‘Travels With Myself’ is unusual for a book of the genre in that it contains several v [...]

    2. I was very surprised seing such a positive feedback about this book.Very flat narration style with unecessary kitch ornemented language - the first sign showing author's inability to say something that we didn't hear yet. I undetected personal speaking, I didn't feel moods and true experiences, only superficial travel journalism. Author was raised in UK but uses such a hypocritical approach to occidental way of living. Old man's cursory sentences in Marocco sound as profoundness of wisdom for hi [...]

    3. A great collection of Tahir's articles, with several unexpected topics and stories alongside travel stories in the depths of the and elsewhere around the world. To my surprise, he also covers women's rights issues in southeast Asia, in Brazil, and even in the deep south USA. An enjoyable series of stories!

    4. I picked up this book based on its intriguing title, nice cover (that should teach me a lesson) and high rating. And everything disappointed me (well, the cover is still nice though).The book contains around 60 short travel stories (several pages each) and does not have to be read from the beginning to the end.Yet it was not a pleasant reading experience. All the time when I was reading this book I could not understand why its rating is so high. The writing style is rather flat, not intriguing, [...]

    5. On the back of this book with the evocative cover it says that it is a sort of bed side book, a book to dip into well it is my bedside book and if the old eyes and concentration are failing what a joy it is to have one's work done for one. A gulp there a scan here (go back to it). Oh ho, what's this?Accounts that one can trust the telling of.Like at least one other reviewer I was startled and oppressed by 'Woman on Death Row' and delighted to read that in Cambodia woman have been enabled to do [...]
