Five quotes of the book
In my opinion, think that having a lot of stories inside the main story, is bullshit, because i have a medium english level, and at first i was confused and i thought that they were already traveling, when it was just the imagination of the narrator.

What i liked most is that it is actually funny, because the characters are crazy and weird, for example, when they were preparing their-food, they put it in the suitcase and they squached it.
