Simon himself provides the introduction for his epic motorcycle journey, and hearing his voice sets a good tone for the rest of the audiobook; in fact, he quips, 'Rupert Degas...sounds much more like me than I do.' Narrator Rupert Degas then takes over for the remainder, with delightful results. His British-accented diction is clear, and his speech follows natural patterns, appropriate for a memoir. Degas' accents for the various people Simon encounters add an extra dimension to the work, creating a vivid listening experience. Winner of AudioFIle Earphones Award.-- "AudioFile"
Extremely readable, full of keen observation, perceptive insight...conveying action, drama, tension, and danger.-- "Los Angeles Times"
