deleted the review, because of stupid language, soon to write a better version A bulgarian itinerary by the author Aleko Konstantinov The title means To Chikago and backward and it tells the reader about Aleko s experiences on his way to Chikago His big dream is to see the Niagara falls and thats the main reason for his trip One of the most interesting chapters in the book is called Niagara and it often takes place in bulgarian textbooks The author calles himself The lucky one and thats a nickname which is still associated with his name till today When he and the group of people he s with finally see Niagara he says Like they weren t standing in front if a God s creation, but in front of God himself He finishes that chapter saying goodbye to Niagara and hoping he ll have the chance to see the waterfalls again Amazing writing style that Aleko has He makes the nature pictures so realistic and you feel like you are on the place he s writing about 5 of 5 stars absolutely deserved You won t waste your time reading this I m sure , XIX XX 50 Public Library , Open to all Open to all , de jure ,. , I . very zabavno Incredibly entertaining book. I have read this book both in my native language Bulgarian and also the translation in English The book is the travel notes of a Bulgarian Author who travels from Bulgaria to visit the World s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 The book is extremely funny I have to say the humor that is used sometimes it doesnt translate as well in English but it is still very good I have laughed out loud reading it The best part for me is the travel from France to New York on a boat I can only imagine what it was like in 1893 but Aleko Konstantimnov does amazing and humorous job I would highly recommend this book. 11 . , 13 13 ,. , 19 superpower 21 .
