"Very good for a long journey"
Very good, I cannot believe I missed the tv programme, this is a great book to listen too while driving long distances, I really enjoyed listening to this. The only criticism I have is the voices take a bit of getting used to, in fact I had to to go back and listen to the first twenty minutes again just to get used to their voices not matching the characters we all know but after that it's great, I noticed when reading reviews before I purchased this audiobook that someone else had put the same comment. It's such a shame it's not in their own voices, But don't be put off by this it's still a great listen
"Long way round finished nice and easy"
This has proven to be a very enjoyable listen. The voices at first was a little unnusual as we all know how Ewan and Charlie sound however you soon get used to it. A really funny journey which I am sure has inspired many a road trip. Definitely worth downloading!
A previous review mentioned about moaning but I have defend the moaning. When out in the middle of no where your worst hurdle is yourself. I thought it was insightful to get the bad with good and see that even with the support team it was grueling both mentally and physically. I don't want to hear about the glossy bits I want to know what their fears and concerns are to, thus giving the listener an insightful view about the things we need to worry about and know that later,sometimes, it seems inconsequential. Very useful to smear a little RW to those dreaming of taking a journey like this. What I got from it is what I thought anyway, planning is paramount and this is insightful to hear about the bureaucracy surrounding the boarder control in the Eastern European countries like Kazakhstan. A worth while audible journey to take, grunts and all. The funny thing about this audible is when Charlie is on, it sounds like Ewan in Star Wars.
"The Long Way Round Ewan McGregor & Charlie Boorman"
This book absolutely enthralled me from the start! I have read the second book so was pretty much aware of what format it would be in.This book is not just for motorbike lovers or travel buffs,but there's something there for everyone,it was also my first foray into the Audio format! Great I could still listen while cooking,cleaning - I loved it,given the option I would've gone for the Unabridged version as it ended oh too quickly for my liking. Well done and thank you Audible for introducing me to a whole new world of books. As for Ewan & Charlie it was fantastic to hear both of your views on the same events and can only imagine what it would have taken to complete such an amazing,once in a life-time journey! this book deserves the five out of five that I gave it,(and more!).
This is an epic road trip! Well narrated and worth the credit. If you were considering going on a long bike journey then have a listen to this!
"Pretty much one long moan fest"
Gets your goat a bit when you hear Ewan complain about money all through it. It was quite interesting and no doubt a tricky trip but could of been a lot less of a winge from start to finish.
