Where does In Siberia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Highly entertaining yet hugely informative
What other book might you compare In Siberia to, and why?
Many other books on Russia deal with European western Russia, this is the great North Asia opened up to us.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Thubron's ability to make contacts and friendships with Russians gives him a unique access to this otherwise alien culture
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Thubron is searching for the centre of other people's faith, does he ever find it?
Any additional comments?
Stephen Thorne's reading is masterly. The conversation sections amount to a vivid dramatization.

The book is fantastic.
It took quite a long time for me not to be irritated by the" Rrrahshyan ektsents" adopted throughout by the reader, however. I'd have preferred their voices to simply be a change in the narrator's voice, not a poorly done foreign accent. I'd have preferred it if the reader had researched (or been coached) on the proper pronunciation of place- and personal- names instead.
But a great book.
