    This is going to be a really objective review.The book is about an intelligent and witty Englishman who travels through the Middle East in the footsteps of a great Islamic travel writer.Alright, so I lied I would have given five stars without reading a single page But I did read it, and I discovered some other reasons for doing so.Tim Mackintosh Smith starts out from Ibn Battutah s underwhelming tomb in Tangiers, Morocco, and journeys through Egypt, Syria, Oman, Turkey and the Crimea Ibn B This is going to be a really objective review.The book is about...

    Travels with a Tangerine, Tim Mackintosh Smith s account of retracing Ibn Battutah s 14th century pilgrimage to Mecca, is a book that falls into the category of topics I love travel history writing, modern day recreations of famous voyages but executions I dislike I found Mackintosh Smith s writing overly pedantic and dense I don t know much about 14th century Arabic history and spent much of the book wishing that Mackintosh Smith had providedof a histo...

    I am giving it three stars just because the subject Mackintosh Smith is dealing with Ibn Battutah and his travels is quite fascinating and there s so much historical importance and intrigue to it.In that regard this book is important But, oh my, it takes some nerves and patience to go through it I don t think Mackintosh Smith executed this well, the book could be muchinteresting,...

    The bad news this isn t a book about traveling the world with nothing but a small piece of citrus fruit to keep you company.The ok news As Mackintosh Smith follows in the footsteps of a 14th century globetrotter named Ibn Battutah, a man from Tangiers the Tangerine of the title , the author puts a lot of effort into his descriptions and metaphors, writing of a large and elderly Englishman from within whose carapace of summer weight tweed an Audenesque head moved slowly, periscopically, as if The bad...
