‘Solly’ Mr. Len is a nonfiction work in the travel, culture, and humor subgenres, and was penned by author Len Wilson. As the title suggests, the work takes a tongue-in-cheek look at many different cultures worldwide as the author delivers anecdotes and stories from his exploits there. A well-traveled person with an easy way of getting to know others, Len offers readers a personal account of travel away from boutique hotels and tourist hot spots by homing in on personal connections with real people instead. There is also plenty of extensive background on each of the countries featured, from historical details to facts about the architecture, culture, and lesser-known attractions.
Author Len Wilson shares his travels with others in a witty fashion, delivering an easy-to-read digest of the world from the perspective of a man who’s seen it all and done it ten times over. I especially enjoyed reading his take on places I have been lucky enough to visit, such as Amsterdam and Vienna’s Schonbrunn Palace, which brought back many memories and vivid descriptions. Wilson’s sharp writing and inclusion of dialogue moments bring the work to life, but there are also some very personal moments about his way of life that will certainly amuse and inspire would-be world travelers of today. Overall, I would recommend ‘Solly’ Mr. Len to travel writing enthusiasts who want personality as well as a sense of place in their reading experience and for anyone who’s been sitting at home these last eighteen months dreaming of getting back out into the world.
