A certainly worthwhile brilliantly written read, time it well to go onto the more solemn and graphic sections though. You won’t be disappointed by its buttock-clenching and the humanism behind Coetzee’s rendition and his expedition. The autobiography, once published, is a eulogy, a homage to the life of an incredible adventurer who loved his continent, a man who loved the freedom paddling gave him, a man who lived for each day and celebrated his existence hard, a man who pursued and lived his dreams.
