Summary
Maxwell Sim seems to have hit rock bottom. Estranged from his father, newly divorced, unable to communicate with his only daughter, he realizes that while he may have 74 friends on Facebook, there is nobody in the world with whom he can actually share his problems. Then a business proposition requires him to drive to the Shetland Isles. Setting out with an open mind, he sets out with a Prius full of toothbrushes and a friendly voice on his SatNav for company. But Max's trip doesn't go as planned, as he's unable to resist making a series of impromptu visits to important figures from his past who live en route. After a string of cruelly enlightening and intensely awkward misadventures, he finds himself falling in love with the soothing voice of his GPS system ('Emma') and obsessively identifying with a sailor who perpetrated a notorious hoax and subsequently lost his mind
