    The Great Railway Bazaar is Paul Theroux's account of his epic journey by rail through Asia. Filled with evocative names of legendary train routes - the Direct-Orient Express, the Khyber Pass Local, the Delhi Mail from Jaipur, the Golden Arrow to Kuala Lumpur, the Hikari Super Express to Kyoto, and the Trans-Siberian Express - it describes the many places, cultures, sights and sounds he experienced and the fascinating people he met.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Great Railway Bazaar?

    First, Frank Muller is my favorite narrator. Paul Theroux is a gifted author who writing in the general "travel" genre does not bore us with the silly and expected details of long waits in line that are the norm of travel. He does not bore us with the grandeur of the taj mahal, but instead focuses on the people along the way which opens the culture to us. What a gift.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way that the author engaged the people wherever he went opening for us his take on the way people think and why.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the rail travel through SE Asia.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't think it would work.
