From the very first sentence I knew this journey was me.
Levison Wood’s writing is clear and absorbing. His explanation of how his love of travel was instilled in him is a wonderful story in itself.
As he set off on his travels I set up my atlas to journey with him. Apart from the joys of hearing his adventures, I have learnt so much geography and history and gained understanding of things unknown or of scant knowledge. Google has furthered the knowledge. I learnt about local culture of races; their customs and daily life.
This book is choice for anyone interested in countries related to the Silk Road or interested in hearing a well written travel book.
It would also be a great choice for students learning about this region.
I cannot recommend the book highly enough and I will be reading more if work.
The narrator, Barnaby Edwards was excellent and set the tone perfectly for the listener to become absorbed in the story.
