    "Modern Chinese version of "On the Road""
    Where does Soul Mountain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better audiobooks


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Soul Mountain?

    The stories he is inventing as he is inspired by the surroundings.


    Which character – as performed by Brian Keeler – was your favorite?

    The main character


    If you could take any character from Soul Mountain out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The writer himself, since he is the main character. I would expect interesting conversations about the humanity. Also, comparing the Chinese and Western cultures.


    Any additional comments?

    Not an easy book to go through, but worth it. Aside from describing the modern Chinese society and its challenges, there are stories describing parts of the rich history, detailed descriptions of the nature in various parts of southern China, as well as the customs, folk songs in the different regions.
