He’s seeking a place to belong. His only tool is philosophical satire… Thomas Gephardt loses no love for his rural Indiana home. Struck with raging wanderlust, the small-town college student heads for France armed with nothing but a thirst for stimulating conversation. So starts Thomas’s ego-bruising first leg of his ill-fated quest for cultural perfection. Struggling to fit in at the catty French cafés, Thomas expands his search to the bustling city streets of Japan and the quiet devotion of an Israeli Kibbutz. But after each stopover leaves him with more questions than answers, he worries no location will check every box on his ideal society list. Will Thomas find his far-flung utopian land, or is this American expat lost in transit? The Perfect Culture is a darkly satirical standalone travel novel. If you enjoy candid cultural commentary, unique perspectives, and detailed descriptions, then you’ll love Brent Robins’s international lampoon.

I currently live in the Cleveland, Ohio area. I have many diverse interests, such as reading, singing (choir and karaoke), exercise, and movies. I love exploring other cultures, and that is the theme of my first novel. I've traveled to over forty countries, and I plan to see many more!

  The Perfect Culture by Brent Robins is a different and uniquely written book. It was a little slow at times, but mostly an enjoyable and fun read. It has quite a bit of humor that made me laugh at times. I was given the opportunity to listen to the audio version of the book with David George narrating. Mr George did a great job performing the way I believe the author wanted the story to be told. 

I am giving The Perfect Culture three and a half stars. 

I received the audio version of this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Brent Robins. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
