S and an unwillingness to compromise his creature comforts when he meets Muriel a deliciously peculiar dog obedie. Accidental tourists are pretty annoying These are those pesky travelers who refuse to give up all their customs their comforts; refuse to get lost a little in the foreignness to LIVE And this book isn't A success then considering the subject matter Yeah the protagonist is a huge bore as he has one of the best jobs of all time is doubly douche ey but he has a reason to be maudlin and dissatisfied Lifetime Movie Network viewers would have a blast the novel feels capital D Dated indeed But Tyler does a great job in making all characters believable and all situations credible you feel very bad for the guy you basically would hate to have around you His intellectual edge is minuscule and you feel bad for all other dumber characters too It's slightly symbolic but also rather um smallIt is wise to note that other books by this particular publishing company such as The Patron Saint of Liars by Anne Patchett or The World According to Garp by John Irvin also seem to fit within this category of above average reads which you may or may not be inspired to recommend depending on the mood the weather or the person

The Accidental TouristMacon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary He is grounded by lonelines. It looks like I'm in the minority here but I really did not enjoy this book I couldn't sympathize with any of the characters I thought Macon was whiny and indecisive I couldn't be compelled to care about what he wanted mostly because it was never made clear to me exactly what that was He just seemed to bump along with whatever happened More than anything else my problem with this book is that nothing happened I kept thinking that possibly in the next chapter Macon would act in some way to change his own destiny but nope Nothing even happened in the end the book just seemed to stop
