I love reading books on trains, planes and buses as well as at airports and bus stations. This time it’s a novel by Michael Delwiche – The Liar’s Guide to South America. I found many real life parallels to my own trip round South America in a few years ago to that of Andrew Mozart.
Andrew Mozart is the lead character. Having been working in a busy UK office and fancying the pants off a woman named Sarah who sat near him, Andrew finds himself falling in love with her, but is too shy to tell her so. Sarah decides to ditch her job and head on an adventure around South America.
Bored and going nowhere, Andrew Mozart books a flight just a few days after Sarah’s flight is due to depart, dead bent on following her to tell her how much he loves her. Inspired by his father’s journeys and supplied with money from his father’s death, Mozart gets on the next plane to Rio.
Author Mike Delwiche uses wit and humour interspersed with his own travel inspiration to tell a tale of a man lusting after a girl who is always one step ahead of him. Andrew Mozart heads from city to city, often missing key sights as he only wants to find one thing: Sarah.
It’s a story about adventure, love, spontaneity and travel.Related Posts
