America Unchained is a book about a guy trying to travel from one side of America to the other without visiting any chained or franchised stores.
While I normally like Dave Gormans work, the film version of this disappointed me.
I liked the idea, but the result was too bland, too much of one guy in a car and just not that entertaining.
Thankfully the books a little better. Covering a lot more of the people and places he met, and genuinely framing it in a more positive attitude. I still wouldn't say its inspiring as his GoogleWhack adventure (or anywhere near as funny). But its a good interesting read, and occasionally thought provoking. It certainly takes you to many unexpected places.
