Book recommendation: Chasing Dean

Chasing Dean (Summerdale, 2009) by Tom Anderson
Book review for Real Travel Magazine, July 2009
Tom Anderson has a recurring dream of perfect waves always just out of reach. In Riding the Magic Carpet, the spectre was Jeffries Bay. This time he is chasing Hurricane Dean and the waves that it produces up the East coast of the States. As he travels up the coast with a childhood friend from South Wales we get not only his thoughtful and highly entertaining take on modern America, friendship, growing up and everything in between but also something much deeper. As he questions his pursuit of pleasure from something which in another context has the power to bring such misery he provides a powerful metaphor for much that is wrong with the world today. Part Moby Dick, part Perfect Storm, this is a travelogue that reads like a novel and has the potential to become a cult classic.

The people are losing their moral while becoming modern. The society needs to be attentive that moral values. Well things needs to be modernized but keeping intact with moral values.

Well, it’s shocking and needed an immediate attention to sort out at the earliest.

I am very pleased with the thought and don’t feel like adding anything in it. It’s a perfect answer.

Every dark night is followed by a bright sunny day. So, patience and attention is required and things will be fruitful in near future.

There is nothing called a free lunch is this world. If things needed to be resolved then initiative needs a support to be sorted out.
