Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sean Condon is young, urban and a connoisseur of hair wax. He can't drive, and he doesn't really travel well.

So when Sean and his friend David set out to explore Australia in a duck-egg blue 1966 Ford Falcon, the result is a decidedly offbeat look at life on the road. Over 14,000 death-defying kilometers, our heroes check out the re-runs on tv, get fabulously drunk, listen to Neil Young and wonder why they ever left home.

Sean & David's Long Drive mixes sharp insights with deadpan humor and outright lies. Crank it up and read it out loud.

Synopsis:

Sean and David are young Australian townies who have rarely strayed beyond city limits. One day, for no good reason, they set out to discover their homeland. What follows is an adventure that covers half of Australia.

Synopsis:

Sean and David are young Australians who have rarely strayed beyond the city limits. One day they set out to discover their homeland and end up driving across half the continent. Highlights include the weekly Hair Wax Report and a memorable Croc Spotting with Stew adventure. Condon has written a hilarious, offbeat road book that mixes sharp insights with deadpan humor and outright lies.

Ken MacRae, March 30, 2007 (view all comments by Ken MacRae)
If you read this book to be amused by Sean's unique brand of humour, fair dinkum, you will not be disappointed as he drowns his boredom in Oz's national pastime and matches wits with the outback's ubiquitous version of inbred bushbillies. If you are thinking of using this book for background reading for the trip, you might prefer to proceed directly to Plan B, as only an alcoholic Aussie or someone whose baby has already been eaten by a dingo would want to make this trip anyway. I think this book would probably be enjoyed more by someone who knows they will never have to go there. For Sean's further adventures - in Amsterdam, I recommend 'My 'Dam Life', a destination that you might actually still want to visit after you've read the book.
