あらすじ・解説

The plan is simple. George and Ben have three weeks to cycle 1,000 miles from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland. There's just one small problem - they have no bikes, no clothes, no food, and no money. Setting off in just a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts, they attempt to rely on the generosity of the British public for everything from food to accommodation, clothes to shoes, and bikes to beer.

During the most extraordinary of challenges, George and Ben scavenge through rubbish bins, search for the Loch Ness monster, wash dishes, clean hotels, sing Christmas carols for food, swim in lakes, descend Cornish hills on children's bikes, and cook a barbecue for 30 old people in a field. They spend the night in a greenhouse, a canal boat, a posh hotel, an empty house, a pub, a tent in a car park, and a barn with a bull.

Through the course of their hysterical journey, they are clothed, fed, and sheltered by the generous people of Britain.

Good audio performance whiny story

The story is written in a very whiny manor and often I felt that the author was being a dickhead in how they whined and mocked people they met. The continuous snubs at gays and old people, who in many cases assisted them is a snub in the face. The reading was done superbly and was probably one of the only reasons I finished the book on Audio.

Excellent Travelogue

Mahood is on par with Bill Bryson, skillfully written, fantasist adventure, great mix of education and humor. Well done George!

Loved it--again

This is my second time reading, (well listening) to this book. my first listen was several years ago. I enjoyed the journey very much. This time I caught that the actual book has pictures. I will be looking for the book now. I really want to go to the Scottish Highlands now!

Hilarious tale

I loved this book, the story and narration both. There is no way I’d have the guts to travel like Ben and Gorge, but I laughed out loud hearing George recount their story and the shenanigans they get into on the journey from Lands End to John O Groats. A must read for any travelers planning an upcoming adventure!

What a Waist

9-10 hrs of wandering dribble. What a waist of time. The whole point of the book is captured in the last 3 minutes; all points of value, but why 10 hrs of wandering to make the point.

Frededick needs this book in Whispersync for Voice

Frederick had a stroke and can not read. He can follow
the text as it is read to him and highlighted by Whispersync for Voice.
This book is a funny true adventure. Please release a Whispersync
version. It lifts his spirit and helps his reading recovery.
