Review: Hostel by the Sea: Living, Loving, & Working in an American Hostel
Hostel by the Sea: Living, Loving, & Working in an American Hostel by Luanne M. Lusic
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Hostel by the Sea: Living, Loving, & Working in an American Hostel by Luanne M. Lusic is a memoir about the author's time spent living in a hostel in Ft. Lauderdale. The author spent time not only living in the hostel, but making her time spent there memorable with good friends, work and even a bit of love. After earning a college diploma, she decides to take off for the sunny coast, but doesn't know exactly where it will lead.
Although the book does have some overly-descriptive passages and somewhat stiff dialogue, the author's sense of adventure wanderlust do come through. Before reading this, I thought hostels were a European thing--now that I know there are many hostels within the U.S., I may just have to go and feed my own wanderlust.
