River Queens by Alexander Watson (Book Review #792)


River queens is a memoir about two men, Alexander and Dale, who buy a boat they find, sinking in a Texas Lake. They then decide to fix it up and go on a trip to see Arkansas, Tennessee, Cumberland and Ohio.

The travel memoir takes you on an exciting journey. The not so perfect boat and the rivers of America caught my attention. I found parts of the adventure to be humorous, and at times I learned a few things I didn’t know.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The literature is descriptive, and the author does a good job explaining in detail how each encounter, place, and experience has been for them.

I particularly liked how Alex and Dale had to adapt and not only navigate the lurking waters but also face foreign locals and lands.

The tale treads on the men getting to learn more about themselves and each other. It is a personal journey, and the endeavour is descriptive with reoccurring flashbacks. There is love, loss, and many pages of increasingly appealing content that made me increasingly surprised.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read US travel guides and memoirs.
