    I m a big fan of Joe Bennett, having read all his books including the ones that don t appear on GoodReads He has an easygoing style and a likeable nature I envy his ability to mix well with anyone and everyone, and the way he relates to so many people from every level of society And, as I m a Kiwi, with a love of dogs, who spent several years living in Lyttelton, I feel like I can relate pretty well to him as well Hello Dubai is the story of Joe s experiences while touring the United Arab Emirates Being a natural observer of people, his writing focuses on...

    I really enjoyed this book without a plot as described by the highly observant author, Joe Bennet In the same vein of one of my all time favourite shows, Seinfeld, and the show about nothing, this book is proof that there needn t be a thrilling plot line to be engaging and enjoyable.In fact, I had a blast hurtling down the desert highways of the UAE in Joe s hired Nissan I m not much into history, but his injections of historical info about the region were brief enough not to bore me, and interesting enough to teach me about this strange new world I am yet to visit myself.Most of all, I enjoyed Joe s writing He is highly observant of the human condition, and not afraid to insert his own opinions and ideas, expressed via his highly profficient yet not at all conceited command of the English language.I enjoyed the clever imagery, A whole fleet of 4WDs was drawn up to it the house like pigglets on a sow , and desperately wanted to take offense at a clever paragraph about females and check outs, but was too impressed by hi...

    I have never been to Dubai but every weekend in the newspaper, Emirates tries to entice me by telling me that I could be in Europe for dinner I expect that would mean that I d be in Dubai for lunch Dubai is hot both literally and figuratively , Dubai is the place That s what Joe Bennett thought too, so he thought he d go there, check it out and write a book about it If only it was that easy for the rest of us, eh Hello Dubai is a very wordy book I m sure that a sight in Dubai such as a cricket game, a hotel or a shopping mall could be described in succinct terms It makes Dubai come across as verbose and boring which my friends who have travelled there assure me that it s not Maybe it s because Bennett describes a lot of parties and shops in great detail for example, pages about each shop I love shopping, but I couldn t write pages about Kinokuniya or Sephora It seems to lack direction is this abou...

    Author Mr Joe Bennett was born in UK and later moved to New Zealand He has written several travel books I ran into this book when I was browsing bookstores in Kuala Lumpur The cute cover caught my eyes immediately I am always keen to learn about Dubai After all, its legend has become such a hype that nothing seems impossible in this arid land So what exactly is it like to travel or live in Dubai Readers can embark on an interesting journey with Joe.Joe was an amiable 51 year old man He liked to talk to people and normally hoped to have conversations with anyone He was blunt on his reflections He didn t seem to like capitalism well He constantly sympathized with the lower class people He blamed capitalism caused the inequality He even despised his British ancestors for causing such troubles During his journey, he introduced some historical facts to the readers I learned the basic roots of UAE how the Brits created the current ruling families, the nuanced relations between the emirates Joe s observations were percep...

    I live in Dubai so was intrigued to read a book from a traveller Too often writers concentrate on the brashness of Dubai and don t get the real sense of the place I thought Bennett got it spot on and I enjoyed his ve...

    A lightweight look at Dubai A bit disappointingly laddish in parts but generally mildly diverting armchair travel The basic takeaway is that Dubai is modern capitalism and free marketeering made flesh Simpson neither apologises for, excuses or justifies this, just pre...

    The book is very nice for new comers to Dubai,it explains the visit of Joe to Dubai and UAE and the amazing spots,with a little bit of history and reality about what made Dubai as it is for now,for me I didn t learn much ne...

    I would neither give any stars nor recomend this book as some of the sentences and stories insulting Islam even though not all the stories relating to Islam I think the writer is purposely doing that to provoke and insults Muslims.

    Went back read this a second time, now that I have been living in Dubai for 7 years read it the first time just before I moved here It s still not a very good book at all Kind of waffling pointless.
