Product description


Vivid description of driving under conditions that were often ferocious.

-- "New York Times"

A compelling narrative that moves, sometimes at breakneck speed, over some of the world's most beautiful and mysterious terrain-packed with fascinating detail, splendid characterizations, and hair-raising adventures.

-- "Boston Globe"

The best motorcycle travel book ever written.

-- "Motorcycle Sport"

By all means, take the plunge.

-- "Rider Magazine"

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"

* The classic travel book that inspired Long Way Round and Long Way Down
