    It is 1923. Evangeline (Eva) English and her sister Lizzie are missionaries heading for the ancient Silk Road city of Kashgar. Though Lizzie is on fire with her religious calling, Eva's motives are not quite as noble, but with her green bicycle and a commission from a publisher to write A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar, she is ready for adventure. In present day London, a young woman, Frieda, returns from a long trip abroad to find a man sleeping outside her front door. She gives him a blanket and a pillow, and in the morning finds the bedding neatly folded....

    Amazon Customer says: "A multi-cultural, multi-generational portrait"

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar to be better than the print version?

    I was warned. Oh, how bad could it be? It's bad. Really bad. The performance by Susan Duerdan was spectacularly....bad. Listen to the sample and multiply it by 100 on the annoyance scale. I didn't like any of the characters, but I really think that it was due to Duerdan's performance rather than the characters themselves. Trust me--read the book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She spoke as if she was talking to a servant. Her voice rose ON EVERY SENTENCE!
