Although this book is full of profanity, it has an element of comedic value that I hadn’t expected from Ross Kemp. The chapters are short and read well, if not a little harrowing at times. One thing I have been made aware of repeatedly whilst reading this book is my privilege. The Privilege I hold as a white person. Ross mentions it several times.
The book is educational (if you are looking for the non-tour book guide to several of the countries) and enlightening.
Okay, so this book has had me chuckling to myself quietly, laughing so loud a woman stopped me in the street to ask me what I was reading and shaking my head as tears silently fell down my cheeks. It’s one of those real-life books that doesn’t hold back. Ross Kemp tends to have use profanity a lot during the first half of the book, however, as the subject matter seems to get more serious, his tone changes and the profanity drops of, somewhat.
As a read, it was quick and easily picked up.
I would recommend this book to others who want to know the darker side of some countries and how they are run.
