Publisher's Summary

Eighteen countries. Five shock absorbers. Two bikers. One amazing adventure.

After their fantastic trip round the world in 2004, fellow actors and bike fanatics Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. Inspired by their UNICEF visits to Africa, they knew they had to go back and experience this extraordinary continent in more depth.

Joining up once more with producer/directors Russ Malkin and David Alexanian and the Long Way Round team, and with two new BMWs loaded up for the trip, their route took them from John O'Groats at the northernmost tip of Scotland to Cape Agulhas on the southernmost tip of South Africa.

Riding though spectacular scenery, often in extreme temperatures, Ewan and Charley faced their hardest challenges yet. With their trademark humour and honesty, they tell their story: the drama, the dangers, and the sheer exhilaration of riding together again, though a continent filled with magic and wonder.

    "Don't Bother"
    What disappointed you about Long Way Down?

    The foundation of the book is that Charley and Ewan wanted to go on another long trip with as little hassle as possible whilst earning as much from merchandise as possible. This book is one of the parts of that story, but it feels like an aside, rather than a book in itself.

    If you have seen the series don't bother with the book; there is very very little more in them (both of the series)


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Is that thing diesel


    What three words best describe Mark Bonnar and Rupert Degas ’s voice?

    I'm not sure who is who, but I am afraid to say that the english bloke did a much better Ewan than the scot.

    "Missing the novelty of Long Way Around"

    This audiobook while done by the same voice actors as in the Long Way Round, doesn't quite capture the excitement and novelty of the first audiobook. It may very well be that the journey WAS completely different, but it definitely didn't seem to have the detail of experience of the first book.

    "A light boys book - but an annoying voice"

    Having watched the series I decided to listen to the book. The narrative is great and broadly follows the TV version but has some nice insights into the detail that would not do well on TV.

    The thing that drives you mad are the heavilly accented voices. The narrators are split to represent Ewan and Charlie with some awful heavy hollywood scottish voice for Ewan. After a while it really gets on your nerves and spoils an otherwise enjoyable boys book
