I came to this book expecting a lot. I love Their Eyes Were Watching God and a lot of her other work. While this book had some really fascinating stories and solid writing (I loved the chapter on zombies), I couldn't help but be somewhat disappointed. The book was disjointed in its chapters - more just like a random collection of travel jouranls. And, I hate to say it, but parts of it were pretty boring. But the nonboring parts were very good (That may have been the stpuidest thing I've ever written about a book).
No but seriously. Zombies.
