    One thought on “My Exile Lifestyle

    1. Bill

      At times I really enjoyed this this haphazard attempt at a memoir cum travel journal that is in reality a haphazard collection of blog posts, notes, brief observations, diary entries and other shallow reminiscing. There is plenty of promise and no doubt Colin is leading a life that is of interest. However I was constantly left wanting more than his snippets of stories that hook you in and leave you left hanging, wanting to know more. Efforts to proceed in a linear manner are are largely ignored. [...]

    2. Denise Wy

      I actually liked this book. It's not really a guide book that tells us how to live like a nomad, it's more of a collection of personal essays, but I still learned a lot.

    3. Jaroslav Tuček

      Don't let the title and description fool you. The book contains very little discussion on long term travel, serial entrepreneurship or minimalism. It's a collection of (very) short stories, frequently without continuity, of Colin partying and chasing women over four continents. Calling the book My International Playboy Lifestyle would be more honest. The tone is pretentious with the author being thoroughly persuaded about his awesomeness and all attempts at in-depth meditations shallow, despite [...]

    4. Kevin Welch

      I found the book to be shallow and self-absorbed. He also comes across as if he's trying too hard to be a good writer. Quite a few jokes were weaved into the stories, yet I didn't even laugh/smirk once. However, I still enjoyed reading about past experiences that shaped who he is, and found his unusual lifestyle to be an interesting and jealousy inducing one. Two stars.

    5. Kevin Hughes

      I'm putting this in "read" because it doesn't belong in to-read or currently-reading.Colin is a smart kid who is excited about some ideas that I think are exciting. But he sucks at writing. I did not finish his book.

    6. Robby

      A journal where I was hoping for an instructional based on experience. That's fine but then there's the bad editing. I don't mean to undermine his lifestyle. That kicks butt and I want that!

    7. Stephen Heiner

      As I looked through the reviews they seemed to be either 2 stars (he sucks, is egotistical, etc.) or 5 stars (inspiring, wow, cool). I agree mostly with the 5 star people. I think with a bit more effort at a coherent journey this could be 5 stars. But, it's definitely at least 4 stars, for some simple reasons.This collection of short stories is in a way, a peek inside Colin's life. He does not have stability in it, in any way that most of us are used to. Because of that sometimes impressions flo [...]

    8. Tom

      Colin definitely has a very interesting lifestyle, but he isn't a very strong writer. He comes across as incredibly full of himself, which might be a good quality in an entrepreneur, but isn't a good quality for a author. He didn't really go in-depth at any point, and the book just seemed like he threw 30 blog posts together and called it a day. Minimalism, entrepreneurism, and travel are three things I'm really interested, so it was annoying that he spent so little time actually discussing them [...]

    9. Stephen

      Writing style shows a certain naivety in Colin. Not a bad thing in itself but I did not make it through to the end of the book. I feel disappointed that he wasn't able to keep me engaged for the whole journey his ideas and way if life are interesting.

    10. Thibault Lemaitre

      Colin's story is one of the most inspiring things I've come across in recent years. I just want to share his experience as much as I can: I feel compelled to let people around me know about him and his experience/experiment!

    11. Ana

      I'm giving this book 2 stars because:1. The author is so damn cute2. I like his style of livingBut I don't like his style of writing so muchOk, maybe I will give another star for the effort.I'm sure that with more practice, he'll eventually nail it

    12. Carly

      He is a young, attractive, male minimalist so I was all heart eyes emoji, but his personality is so egotistical and off-putting that I couldn't deal.
