I'll say this before diving in that I am not surprised at all that Golding's travel writing might be insufferable based on two of his novels I've read.

Golding's a weird character that one work of his has achieved pop culture immortality yet people aren't terribly interested in him more broadly. With Orwell it seems to me that people are a lot more interested in the author - lots of people have a broad take inside of them.
