    Story
    "Missed oppurtunity"

    Narration is very sleepy with little attempt to differentiate voice between characters. And the guy sounds much more soft and feminine than charlie which is off putting.

    The main problem is that the text comes off like a laundry list of chores in bullet point form. Listing like "we went here, then used that, the the next day we went here and so on". Very little space is allocated to describing the places and people encountered.

    "Not as good as his previous books"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I thought I would really enjoy this book after reading longway round and long way down but this book is more like an itinerary list, I have to say I'm very disappointed because I'm a big fan of Charley Boorman but I've only listened to about an hour this book and don't intend to listen to the rest, so I'm not really sure who it's for. It maybe just me after enjoying the other two books so much.


    What was most disappointing about Charley Boorman’s story?

    The most disappointing thing about this book is the fact that Charlie Boorman doesn't read it himself, I know he didn't read Long way down along way round with Ewan McGregor either but I have really struggled with it this time. It's such a shame when big names don't read their own books, I am sure they would sell me copies, the best example is Chris Evans book, its great read by him, it means the characters really shine throug, imagine if Charley narrated this it would be a different story because he is great to listen to on the radio and TV. Sorry Charley


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rupert Degas’s performances?

    Not really


    What character would you cut from By Any Means?

    N/a


    Any additional comments?

    No, as I say maybe it's just me, maybe I will go back to it when I'm on holiday.
