A great travel adventure, written at a time when crossing the globe was a much more challenging experience. Will resonate with anyone who's embarked on a voyage across cultures.
It reminded me of what I love about freeform travel
The narrator was excellent - when the accents seem natural and quietly add to the appreciation of the story, rather than being something that you notice outright, then the narrator has done their job well.
One of the better books
Great writing, fascinating characters and a wonderful story
Very much likes Scott's narration. Understated with exactly the right tone for the story.
The story made me contemplative, rather than laugh or cry.
It seems an abomination that the language has been sanitised. I assume that was done to meet a certain rating, but it seems like a poor decision to say the least. It's 2012, and we're still butchering books?If you can get past that, a thoroughly recommended listen and one I will surely listen to again.
Ranks in the middle
Yes, interesting writing style and great insights into India, though can get a little bogged down.
Several recording errors were left in the recording, which was pretty annoying.
I found the narrators Indian accents a little distracting at times, especially as at times they were a little over the top. Some of the quoted dialogue came across as a little unnatural, which I would attribute to the narrator 'over performing' the lines.
No, not a 'page turner' as such.
A book to be in the right mood for, but some really interesting material. Unfortunately, the narration probably detracted more than it added.
This audiobook is great to listen to for any Star Wars fan.
But if you listen to books while exercising or while in the car, the credits/outro music after EVERY chapter will infuriate you. Plus they play the theme music at the intro to every chapter as well. Haven't timed it but it must be over 1 minute in total.
Obviously this was originally a radio serial have no idea why all the unnecessary stuff wasn't cut out when transferring to a downloadable audiobook.
