        Little did I know the roller coaster ride I was in for. It was there I first learned about the Peace Corps.

      Mahon had been a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon three decades earlier, but this was not a Peace Corps experience. They are on a roller coaster ride of their own, hoping and praying for his survival. While The Ride is not a Peace Corps book, there is evidence of Mahon’s time in Cameroon throughout. And don’t miss the part about. UNLIKE MANY STORIES prompted by a Peace Corps Volunteer’s adventures, Roman Proud, Wayward Widower is about relationships. The primary focus of the novel is the emotional roller-coaster ride caused by the central character’s dalliances.

        What captures the essence of the crazy emotional roller coaster I face every day as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Thailand: the incredible joys, deep concerns, profound peace and immense humility? I looked back over my last month of service and thought about what my co-facilitator and I went through while organizing a STEM camp.

I haven’t read a Peace Corps memoir in some time and have very mixed feelings about the genre.

Ideally, a book like this should provide unvarnished insights into volunteer life (and the country in question) while also expounding upon the psychological and emotional aspects of Peace Corps service. Lloyd succeeds on both counts. See more of my book reviews on my blog, Literary Flits I remember as a teenager looking into volunteering with the Peace Corps and being most disappointed to discover that only Americans were eligible to apply.

Tyler Lloyd was one such American who spent his two years of service in Burkina Faso. He gives us a few glimpses into the country's life and culture, but this memoir is primarily a /5(10).

(If you missed part 1 of this post, see Peace Corps is a Roller Coaster Ride: 27 Months). His description of his Peace Corps years in Ecuador showed his roller-coaster of emotions towards the people he worked with and the situations he found himself in.

Perhaps one phrase can comprehensively describe the difficulties that he dealt with: "We aren't accustomed to doing things this way."Reviews: I joined Peace Corps knowing very little of what life or work would be like. Unlike some of my volunteer friends, I hadn’t dreamt of Peace Corps since I was little, and it was never part of some 10 year professional plan.

I would be lying to say it is easy.” – Rita Wilkins, “The Downsizing Designer” Rita’s downsizing journey was inspired by a trip to a third world country when she traveled to Senegal, West Africa to visit her son who was serving in the Peace Corps.

Peace Corps is such a roller coaster ride with so many ups and downs. And they aren’t the Disneyland roller coasters where the stratification is not so extreme between the high and lows.

I’m talking about Six Flags roller coasters here, baby. Low moments of hardships come in all shapes and sizes. One stressor for many Peace Corps Volunteers. Kitty Thuermer () was in-country a year after John Sime and is grateful to him for re-kindling the emotional roller-coaster ride that was Peace Corps/Mali, and for filling the reader in on the turbulent political trajectory that has sadly dominated the country.

Enjoyed reading this book while serving in Morocco. I could relate to his story on many fronts. I loved the detail he put in this book. It is an emotional, visceral and vulnerable account of his time serving in Burkina Faso.

He doesn't hold back much and his story shows just how much of an emotional roller coaster Peace Corps can s: Job frustration is often high and sometimes obscures how much the volunteer is doing to achieve goals two and three.

Through her letters, the author expresses beautifully the "roller-coaster" emotions, frustrations and joys of serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer. The author's stories are universal to the Peace Corps experience.
