At Home in The World by Tsh Oxenreider

At Home In the World

At Home in The World is a book about a family’s adventure around the world, as they travel to different countries and experience various cultures.

The author, Tsh Oxenreider, chronicles her family’s journey and shares her reflections on what it truly means to be at home.

The book is a combination of a travelogue and a family memoir, but it falls short in both aspects. The author spends a lot of time describing their travel from one place to another, but relatively little about what they do there. The book lacks specificity and structure, and the writing is overly verbose.

Despite its flaws, the book touches on themes of belonging, identity, and the meaning of home. The author grapples with the concept of home as she learns what it means to be lost yet at home in the world.

What I Liked

I love the prose and how she documents this incredible adventure. It’s very inspiring and reminded me a bit of my own childhood (I lived in a places for a few years at a time, but in a developing country).

What I Did Not Like

Ok – I’ve traveled with young kids (who are both adventurous, well-behaved, with incredible stamina). The book absolutely downplays how tough traveling with kids is in the moment. Also, I’d love to hear a post-mortem 3 years after this adventure in regards to their kids education and their memories of it.
