This is very much in keeping with the rest of this series but somehow it did not hit the spot for me. I don't know if this is because I have now been introduced to the TV series so it seemed a bit slow and cumbersome or if it was just my mood. I could not fault the book and I would be interested to see some other reviews to see what they highlight as different as there is nothing i can pinpoint. I thought as someone who has been to Tanzania and read quite a few books with african references this was a good example of not overdoing the exotic while still noting some very key differences. I do like her characters and the recovering traveler would have been nice to see a bit more depth to.
