Great story: it sounds authentic and touching at times.
However, I'm afraid the skill of narrating is not quite Tony's expertise, based on this performance. It is rather flat most of the time... It keeps me going purely because of the story. I would have to read the book when I have more time.
As a Chinese, I really don't want to sound critical about the narrator's pronunciation of Chinese, but it has been misleading from time to time. It certainly would have benefited the listeners (Chinese obviously) if Tony had got someone to check it before finalising the whole narration...
'Bravo!' to any author who can resist the temptation to narrate the story him/herself if he or she knows him/herself rather well. Just to be clear, I am not a narrator ;)
Impressive poetic flow and details. A virtual reverie of internal-external vignettes and process, that gently brings into a considerate focus and juxtaposition most important universal (though often culturally accessorized and subculturally specific) existential issues. Mindful individualism, with an objective enough sense of Global responsibility.

Tony, a remarkably astute yet wide-eyed young American surrenders himself to the whims of a unpredictable journey through a foreign world.
Brasunas' rich, vibrant storytelling lingers in the imaginarium of the mind.
An outstanding performance by author.
