Good Books The Kindness of Strangers the best work When we miss our train or bus, lose our wallets, fall ill or get lost, a kind stranger can save not only the day, but the entire journey This collection explores the unexpected acts of kindness that can occur on the road, those unforgettable connections that transfigure and transform our travels.. Good Books The Kindness of Strangers Although I haven't finished every one of these essays, I've read the vast majority of them. I give the collection four stars on the whole, because a few of the tales are mediocre at best and a few are truly beautiful and outstanding. I like the fact that some are written by brand-new authors while others are by "famous" ones (and, as you might guess, some by the budding authors are better than those by the seasoned!) There is a fairly good variety of locales covered, though it's a bit light on the European side of things--a bit more on Asian and Middle Eastern travels. (Perhaps this is due to the fact that it seems more astonishing/interesting to find "kindness" from strangers when there is more of a language barrier or one is in an impoverished or politically unstable country.) It's a beautiful concept, even if the completed project falls short of perfection, and the Dalai Lama's foreward is exquisite. Here's to following the "religion of kindness!" ------------------------------------------------------------Found this at the Barnes and Noble in Maui (we went in for the amazing collection of Hawaiian books, but I couldn't resist the entire travel section!) and I started it on the plane -- so far, I'm really enjoying it though some stories are better than others. Still, I love the idea and it's definitely heartwarming and inspiring.
