Thoroughly Enjoyable

This book exceeded my expectations, when you have Michael Palin and Travel,you know you are on a winner but I got far mor out of this than I expected. Once again Michael's style and great descriptions make you feel as if you are travelling with him. Thoroughly enjoyed it and I can recommend it to anyone.

Be careful to download the right format!

As ever, Michael Palin is a great narrator for his own book (as if there was any doubt). The only thing I would caution is to NOT download the Enhanced format of Part two. It's missing about 18 minutes. You jump a whole section in the middle dealing with the entry into China. If you download format 4, you have the whole book.
