Review:

Captivating ... an enchantment that holds the reader as engrossed as would an exciting thriller ( Irish Independent)

A distinctive and highly entertaining account of the tribulations encountered and the beauty along the way ( Times Educational Supplement)

Her seven-month journey is continuously entertaining, and her fortitude continuously astonishing ( Sunday Telegraph)

By almost anyone else's standards she had a hell of a time, but she communicates a high enjoyment that will be shared by all her readers ( Daily Telegraph)

Few people can have had a better chance of understanding Asian people than Dervla Murphy ( Daily Telegraph)

This book has the charm of spontaneity and the ring of absolute truth ( Irish Times)

Warmly described, and with a lack of self-regard that immediately endears her to the reader ( Sunday Times)

Warmly entertaining book ... range of engaging traveller's tales ( Western Daily Press)

Fascinating, gripping and completely satisfying ( Liverpool Echo)

[Dervla Murphy is] always great value ... fascinating account of her trials and tribulations, and also the beauty of her journey ( Eastern Daily Press)

For an insight into a unique region, and a unique woman, you couldn't do much better than this. ( James Herron, Geographical Magazine)

Dervla Murphy proves herself a true traveller ... who engages sympathy from the start by her qualities of tact, charity and courage ( The Spectator)
