    A final African adventure from the writer whose gimlet eye and effortless prose have brought the world to generations of fans. Journeying alone, in what he feels will be his last African journey, Paul Theroux encounters a world increasingly removed from both the itineraries of tourists and the hopes of post-colonial independence movements. Having travelled down the right-hand side of Africa in Dark Star Safari, he sets out this time from Cape Town, heading northward up the left-hand side, through South Africa and Namibia, to Botswana, heading for the Congo, in search of the end of the line.

    matthew says: "The B side of Dark Star Safari"
    "Norman Dietz should have read this."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Train to Zona Verde to be better than the print version?

    In some respects yes, but mostly no. The narrator's voice takes a long time to get used to. Too many pauses, too slow and even stops to suck on a lozenge. This takes away from Theroux's writing.
