A thing one’s mother says one should never do.
But hey, an archive of thanks to the nice people who have interviewed Carolyn and reviewed her books can’t be all bad. Especially since Carolyn was aiming for writing which was merely whimsical…when the word ‘hilarious’ began to crop up time and again she dared to start pitching her work as humour.
Back in the days when Planet Alzheimer was published, newspapers were kind of it, but by the time Trucking in English came out there were websites and blogs and podcasts. So here we go, lots of links, and if you are really stuck for some reading matter, pdfs of her print reviews are here.
Throughout the book shines Carolyn’s good humor, frankness, and sense of the ridiculous. The characters and events she encounters are described so vividly that they seemed as real to me as they were to her, and in such a way that I had to stifle snorts of laughter if I was reading my Kindle in a public place.
Not only a fun read but, for anyone considering a career as a trucker, a must read.
Even if you’ve never dreamed of getting in the cab of a big rig and hitting the road, Trucking in English is an entertaining read.
You don’t want to miss it — no, you don’t.
