A very weak 2 stars. The journal entries like style of "he said, he said" bored me to tears. It dragged the narrative down to a crawl and made a journey that was interesting boring. There were parts that were worth it but they were so diluted in the incessant flow of boring, redundant informations that unfortunately the thrill of being on the road on motorbikes in Africa was lost unlike Long Way Round where you were there in Mongolia, on the Road of Bones. Still white dudes on big expensive motorbikes on their boy's adventure in Africa is going to be problematic any way you look at it much more than Long Way Round which was more about adventure in the great wilderness.
