Can't be more perfectReviewed in Spain on 29 May 2021
I don't know what I like most: the travel story, the creativity of the detailed maps, the QR codes that take you to different locations... But I think the most important thing is that it gave me some hope in humanity -- just what I needed after one year of witnessing people's selfishness during the pandemic. Thank you, authors!
The experience of travelReviewed in Italy on 26 May 2021
I've been waiting the translation of this book for years. As soon as it was published I didn't waste time, I've been reading it for a while and it truly is an experience more than a simple Storytelling. It drives you through the mental and I dare say spiritual aspects of the travel, and it faces the small and big challenges that the writers have come through. I will keep this book dear.
A story made of storiesReviewed in Canada on 1 June 2021
was never a fan of travel literature, but this one got me hooked from the very first page. The narration, illustrations, maps, QR codes - everything is seamlessly intertwined into a single story made up of dozens of separate narrative lines. Not to mention all the interesting (and often uncomfortable) questions it raises about today's world
A true story about everyday AfricaReviewed in the United States on 1 July 2021
Offering a thorough humanistic insight into the daily lives of people from all around Africa, Bantustan reads as a gutsy travel adventure told against the backdrop of a painfully candid autobiography. Or was it the other way round, with the trip being just a narrative device for delivering a deeply personal story? Without question, the most original and creative travel journal I've ever seen.
The best described traveling adventureReviewed in the United States on 31 May 2021
One of the best books in the field of traveling, adventure and life as such. Such a dedication to illustrate the book and describe that unique adventure, with maps, QR codes leading to the pictures is rarely seen in world literature. Book with specific touch of emphatic connection of authors with people living their lives there.
