Publisher's Summary

Winner of the British Book Awards, Popular Non-Fiction Award, 2008.Eighteen countries. Five shock absorbers. Two bikers. One amazing adventure. After their fantastic trip round the world in 2004, fellow actors and bike fanatics Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. Inspired by their UNICEF visits to Africa, they knew they had to go back and experience this extraordinary continent in more depth. Joining up once more with producer/directors Russ Malkin and David Alexanian and the Long Way Round team, and with two new BMWs loaded up for the trip, their route took them from John O'Groats at the northernmost tip of Scotland to Cape Agulhas on the southernmost tip of South Africa. Riding though spectacular scenery, often in extreme temperatures, Ewan and Charley faced their hardest challenges yet. With their trademark humour and honesty, they tell their story: the drama, the dangers, and the sheer exhilaration of riding together again, though a continent filled with magic and wonder.

A light boys book - but an annoying voice

Having watched the series I decided to listen to the book. The narrative is great and broadly follows the TV version but has some nice insights into the detail that would not do well on TV.

The thing that drives you mad are the heavilly accented voices. The narrators are split to represent Ewan and Charlie with some awful heavy hollywood scottish voice for Ewan. After a while it really gets on your nerves and spoils an otherwise enjoyable boys book

Too short!

it managed to condense Africa into about 2 hours . having seen the long way down and long way round I feel both books are far too short however the content within is enjoyable
