I was very nervous of taking this book but went on a recommendation of a friend and I have found it compelling and interesting reading. Even to the point of wanting to find out although fiction what background truths are used in the story to combine truth with fiction to be realistic as I think this book has done very well. It is also very well narrated which goes a long way to enjoying the book. I would recommend this book to anyone well worth a listen.
This is my first non-fiction book and as I have enjoyed Michael Palin's television series this is why I chose one of his books. The book is even better than I had imagined his narration brings things to life and even made me laugh out loud much to my husbands surprise. It has left me eager to download the rest of his books and spend more time listening to his marvellous adventures.
A book with a beginning a middle and an end full of human interest wonderfully narrated and a very good story transports you back in time and entertains as well.
