4.0 von 5 Sternen GreenTaxi Review: Running With The Moon 12. Oktober 2008
Von Conor Neu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The adventure of being able to read Running With The Moon was not nearly as exciting as the book itself. I initially purchased this book over two years ago, but after having it snatched up by my brother, taken to the Mediterranean to be read, him leaving it on a boat there, finding it myself on the same boat on another trip, and then leaving the book on the boat again myself, I finally decided it was time to buy another copy.

This may be my favorite travel adventure book that I have read. It is right up there with "Into Thin Air". Running may not have the adrenaline rush that "Into Thin Air" maintains throughout the entire book, but the location and diverse experiences entertained me much more.

To explain briefly, the author ends up riding his motorcycle from London to the southern tip of Africa and back. Bealby covers the exciting part of the journey, from his entry into northern Africa and all the way down and back out again in this book. He endured almost the entire journey by himself yet met many interesting people along the way.

Covering an entire continent and so many countries is not easy to fit into such a short, easy read, but Bealby does it with a very fluid writing style and enough detail to give you a slight sense a flavor for each country and city. Bealby entices you to want to join his trip or take the trip yourself. Unfortunately, one of the enticing things about his story and Africa are the opportunities and situations arising from such a continuously changing continent. Governments can change in these countries daily and while one country may seem incredible one moment, it may be horrifyingly dangerous the next. Considering the book was written in 1996, I imagine much has changed in the 12 years since his journey.

That said, it also makes you realize that the changes occuring in Africa will always offer a new adventure for every traveller. While the countries and governments he speaks of dangerously back then might offer a new hope today, the interesting people he meets might not have lived through the times and could be gone now.

I am not a motorcycle enthusiast. Nor am I a mechanic. Somehow, even with all the trouble Bealby runs into with his bike, he manages to make the ride seem like the most enjoyable way to travel anywhere. He complains much more about the heat than anything else, which is entirely understandable, given the circumstances he describes.

Lastly, the most enjoyable aspect of this book in my opinion is the complete honesty and humility of his attitude towards Africa. He admits certain bias going in and does not spend any time bragging or "chest thumping" with his accomplishment. Most importantly, he points out multiple times what I think is his underlying theme: the people of Africa are extremely generous and caring, no matter what they own and can give in terms of material possession.

Von C. E. Muthler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book delivers exactly what a reader with an adventurous spirit is looking for; a great description of the landscape, villages and people as well as a full array of both good and bad experiences along the way. I feel like I have a better understanding if Africa after reading this book .

Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Running with the Moon," an autobiography by JonnyBealby recounts the adventures of a man on a motorbike travellingthrough Africa in hopes of finding insights and answers to his lifeafter the sudden death of his fiance. What makes this book so notable is the fact that a journey of the sort undertaken by the author would be impossible in todays age due to the political state of the majority of African countries in the present. After the death of his fiance while travelling in Kashmir Jonny Bealby returns to an England which is not the same. Day to day life having changed into a struggle of lost hopes and loves. Challenged by this austere new world and compounded by his confusion he decides to undertake a journey across Africa apon a motorcycle. Accompanied by his best friend Neil, the two prepare for their journey and set off, a Yamaha Tenere under each...A fascinating insight into the beauty and sadness of a man who uncovers Africa for the reader and once again reclaims the peices of himself lost to him by past tragedies. Defianitely a must for the reader with a soft side for travel and adventure.
