“Who better than quirky film director John Waters himself to narrate his hitchhiking odyssey? Listeners will feel like they've been along for the whole ride as Waters joyfully reaches his destination.” ―AudioFile Magazine
From the Pope of Trash himself, John Waters, Carsick is his hilarious (if not always 100% true) account of hitchhiking fearlessly into the heart of middle America. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

The idea of making up fake hitchhiking scenarios is fun and for the first couple chapters, it's funny, but then it drags on and on for most of the book. I'm ready to skip the fiction, because it really isn't entertaining at all at this point, to get to what really ended up happening.
Right before starting this book, I read Role Models and totally loved it. Carsick is a drag.
The non-fiction story really lets us into John Waters' head. Its fun. I found it ironic that after the two fantasy stories that relied so heavily on his public person to drive the story the non-fiction relied on average people and their varied reactions, from taking care not to engage, to caring people going out of their way to help, regardless of who the hitchhiker was. I got the feeling John Waters was really pleasantly surprised how happy the "normal" people he met were. He spent quite a while in Kansas, and I have to admit on a road trip in another part of the US a couple of years ago I met really friendly "normal" people from Kansas.
We warned John Waters does let you into his thoughts and his fantasies in the book - don't expect something "nice".
I skipped the fictional bad rides portion because my mind just cannot take horror stories, but for those who like horror, certainly go there!
While the real story of his adventure paled in comparison, I was fascinated by its truth. As a writer currently writing about travelers, I wished he had stayed on the streets at night. While I realize it would have been scary, I really believe if he had hooked up with other travelers, he would have had a time as great as his imagination.
Way to go John! Keep writing brave soul! You've got talent!
