    Did not enjoy this book AT ALL For a highly educated doctor, I expected the writing to be of better quality It was extremely disappointing considering I have an interest in not only travel books, but recently, also in memoirs Since I am on the road over 300 days of the year myself, driving an 18 wheeler with my boyfriend and having traveled the United States and Canada extensively, I did not find the descriptions of any of the places she had been enticing enough to make me want to visit and Did not enjoy this book AT ALL For a highly educated doctor, I expected the writing to be of better quality It was extremely disappointing considering I have an interest in not only travel books, but recently, also in memoirs Since I am on the road over 300 days of the year myself, driving an 18 wheeler with my boyfriend and having traveled the United States and Canada extensively, I did not find the descriptions of any of the places she had been enticing enough to make me want to visit and I ve BEEN to many of the places she mentioned.I think the idea of two shrinks on a bus for a year could have been interesting, but the writing did not reflect as humorously as it coul...

    This was my least favorite book I have read in a long time In fact, I might even use the H word to describe my feelings for it It s honestly the first book I didn t finish in my lifetime.In no particular order here are the reasons I h worded this book the protagonist was not likeable, not well developed, and her epiphany came way too late in the book in fact the last 10 pages Calling her husband project nerd was not funny, the protagonist just seemed like a spoiled brat I am not saying This was my least favorite book I have read in a long time In fact, I might even use the H word to describe my feelings for it It s honestly the first book I didn t finish in my lifetime....

    I couldn t finish this one because I just couldn t get into it The writer s husband, a lover of nature, convinces Doreen, a self proclaimed princess, to spend a year in an RV I read about half of it and enjoyed that much, but I felt the writer was rambling without much point.
