The Amazing Adventures of a Nobody by Leon Logothetis
Leon decided after watching Motorcycle Diaries to change his life drastically. He decided to go to New York and travel to California and touch the Hollywood sign. He planned to travel with only five dollars a day and without a car or phone or anything else other than his backpack. To do this he had to depend on the kindness of strangers in a world where we are taught at a young age not to talk to strangers. In a world where every time we turn on the news there is a new person or child missing, someone found dead or abused. We learn to fear what and who we don’t know. Trust a stranger? Yah right! That said, somehow Leon did it. It wasn’t easy but somehow he found a way to convince people to trust and help him. A person who kept to himself was forced to talk to all kinds of people and forge new relationships that changed his life as he knew it.
I’m a blogger so I was excited to get contacted to hold a contest for this book. I couldn’t say no to this new opportunity even though this book was different from what I normally read. I said to myself, “well, it won’t kill me to branch out.” I’ll tell you about the contest in a bit.
This book amazed me. I was very impressed and it surpassed my expectations. I was in awe of the people Leon came across and that were so willing to help him. The author wrote his stories in such a way that I couldn’t help but laugh. I loved that aspect a lot. He is a very good story teller and deserves high praise for capturing my attention. The story was inspirational. Leon was very brave to go on this adventure. It was fun going on this journey though his writing, while I stayed safely in my room because I couldn’t do what he did.
