    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksThis is the first of Tim Cahill's books I have read and I have three others in my shelfThis is a collection of short stories and as I understand it some have been published in magazines or news papers previouslyThey cover a variety of locations although around half are set in the USA They are loosely categorised into the following headings The Unnatural World Tooth and Claw The Natural World Other Peoples Lives and RiskThere are a real mixture of stories provided from fire fighters in Kuwait Bison in Yellowstone National Park Kayaking in Baja to traveller's diarrhea Australian slang and racing a 'chariot' constructed from a 44 gallon oil drum As might be expected there were good stories and stories that appealed less There were some very good ones where Cahill described events very well and had interesting uirks or situations gener

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksWhat made me want to read this book The title and cover mostly I then read the description and listened to the introduction on Audible Since it made me laugh considerably I went ahead and got it I sadly have to say that this was than a disappointmentWe were informed in the introduction that there would be next to no ducks in this That's fine with me What I would have wanted was some kind of red thread leading the reader through the book And maybe a laugh or two since it was advertised as vivid and outrageously funnyInstead we got the ramblings of a guy who travels a lotI honestly felt as if I was seated next to him at a party desperately trying to escape while

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksIt took me forever to finish this book and I can't really figure out why I like it it's interesting funny and well written It just failed to capture me I suspect that I'm not terribly familar with personalities like TC's When I read travel memoirs they're usually Bill Bryson esue inept people falling over logs or Tony Horwitz esue passionate intellectual dorks mixing humor and social commentaryIn contrast I suspect TC has a beard An unironic beard I suspect everyone he hangs out with has unironic beards also He probably goes to gritty bars in small towns in Mex

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksThis book has a number of pros and a number of cons My opinion flip flopped from good to bad as I read through the 300 or so pages I eventually settled on a Do Not Readalthough there were many parts I really enjoyedso it's a very tentative Do Not Read In other words I might recommend it to a specific person but not to everyone I knowThe title is what initially drew me in Pecked to Death by Ducks that sounds funny Then I noticed a comment on the cover comparing Cahill's writing to Anthony Bourdain and PJ O'Rourke I was in the mood for a snarky wit filled pithy travel log The book's prologue is an explanation of the title where Cahill suggests he has a great sense of humour and that is why his books have such funny titles Great a humour bookor in this case my first expectation shot downThe first chapter is intense Very well written not in a funny way but in a shocking way that pulls yo

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by Duckstim cahill is my favorite travel journalist Yes he gets all macho sometimes but mostly he digs into the humor and the genuine belonging he finds with the people he pulls these stunts with for a paycheck He may go into war torn or gang torn parts of the world to get a story but he comes out of it writing like a poet every single time If you're not sure what I mean get this book and read Baja by Kayak page 172 They get swarmed by wasps they tip into the Pacific they get lost after dark but Cahill brings it all together with a young Mexican man that speaks no English not wanting to take a sip of the teuila the people are passing around because of the 8 year old girl who on

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksRecalling this book from long ago loved it as I seem to love most of Cahill's writing He has a great knack for capturing the essence of being in the outdoors often focusing on adventure in the outdoors in a uniue and insightful and funny way Here's an example What happens in the woods is this The mind is forced to deal with certain niggling but elemental details Those things we take for granted shelter food basic conveniences comfort brute survival reuire all our attention and must be attended to When a storm is blowing in and the tent isn't set up worrying about mortgages and outlines is a luxury Later such con

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksThe title is the most mildly amusing thing about this book That it has no connection whatever to the content is close to deception in my view Like others here I was expecting something at least mildly amusing; it's not It's well written yes but not amusingThe book is collection of travel related tales which were written for various magazines All through even though I'd never heard of Tim Cahill I kept on getting a this is very familiar feeling as I read It is familiar The stories are the sort of thing you might find in any airline's in flight magazine; designed and written competently and very carefully so as not to offend or upset or annoy That's understandable in an in flight mag but in a book it just makes for rather bland writing and somewhat ordinary reading

    Pecked to Death by Ducks review ó 103 Pecked to Death by DucksA mixed bag of his essays mostly previously published and almost all pretty interesting I have been reading Cahill for a while and have enjoyed most of his work I liked most when he was visiting different people especially his section in South America and some of the high adventure things or in some cases the lower adventure one for example his caving stories I was fascinated by the Lechuguilla Cave I think an even bigger one has since been discovered I love experiencing these places that I will never get to go mostly cause I am a coward and not healthy enough to tackle them And I often like his humor
