As of yesterday, I knew exactly two things about Burma:1. It is called Myanmar on a lot of maps.2. Rambo liberated the country and brought freedom to its people in the fourth Rambo film [citation needed].I was initially expecting "Burma Chronicles" to fill in some of the missing details, but it's...

I really enjoyed this. I was a little hestiant because I read his North Korea book last year, and whilst I did like it, it was interesting etc there was also something a bit arrogant and dismissive of the North Koreans in it that had a slight arsehole alarm bell ringing. So I was a tiny bit appre...

I really like the drawing style, so minimalistic, so cute, yet so full of small details. And I love the slightly ironic way of the mono- and dialogues, and I like the way the book consists of little events and pieces and not of a single one long story. This all makes it so realistic. Since I'm go...

Mostly, I wish we were following his wife Nadège as she made her MSF rounds. Maybe it's just from the nature of her job, but she seeme...

V ideálnom prípade by túto knihu mali čítať ľudia, ktorí o Izraeli nič nevedia a niečo vedieť chcú alebo sa tam nejakým nedopatrením ocitli. Delisleho rozprávač je totiž ignorant, ktorého sklamané očakávania, údiv a niekedy príliš hlúpe otázky a poznámky by takými nemuseli byť, ak by si pred tým ...

Fantastic. From the handful of negative reviews I gather this isn't a book for people who can't cope with a sketch of Israel in anything but the most flattering light, but as someone at a long geographical and ideological remove, the book reads as advertised: the travelogue of a curious, good-nat...
