Strangers Have the Best Candy

We rated this book:

$14.99

Survival advice for the young consists of two very strong admonitions, first…. never talk to strangers and second….never, no never, take candy from a stranger, and there are probably more warnings nowadays. But Margaret Meps Schulte is no longer a child and she relishes the revelations that she uncovers while cozying up to strangers. She adores discovering the thoughts, feelings, life styles, habits, idiosyncrasies of those pilgrims she chances upon during her travels, recorded in this publication which reads like a teenage journal replete with anecdotes and doodled sketches of her journalistic adventures. The author writes fluidly and excessively brags about her unabashed desire to get to know people, sort of an entertainment while she and her hubby adventure across the states and elsewhere. The reader can learn different strategies for starting conversations and following through to glean entertaining details. At times such exchanges open unfamiliar vistas, even forge new friendships. The stories make a fast superficial read, which will appeal to the teen-age reader, but the writing is somewhat glib and the writer assumes too great a nobility in deigning to talk to strangers.
