Brace’s “confessions” chronicle the decidedly posh jaunts of a foreign correspondent turned superb travel writer. This is a side of life few of us ever get to experience. Narrator Colin Moody delivers the author’s often-unbelievable adventures with gusto. Brace’s sometimes pompous, even arrogant, tone, conveyed well by Moody, is relieved by frequent hilarious gaffs and dangerous encounters with wild animals and unexpected wars. The world of lavish indulgences includes gold-encrusted corridors, exotic gardens and glistening pools, and $11,000-a-night hotel suites. A traveler's fantasy come to life, this is great fun, but all the excess makes one yearn at times for a Super 8 Motel. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
