Book Review: Takoradi to the Stars by Jules Brown

By: Jules Brown

Jules Brown is a veteran travel writer, working for Rough Guide. In Takoradi to the Stars, Brown blends his love of travel with a memoir, revisiting 35 destinations, including his home town in West Africa.

Brown is not only a great traveler, he’s a brilliant storyteller. Each destination is described with a unique and honest story of his experiences. I’m a live-like-a-local type traveler so I really enjoyed the “off the beaten path” destinations explored in this book. Brown does a wonderful job of blending humor and reverence, where appropriate. I’m an avid traveler, myself, and missing it greatly due to the pandemic. This was a welcome escape.

This is travel writing at its best.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
