Interesting and engaging book about trip into the hearth of Tibet. It was my first Tom Martin's book, I am not sure how it come that I opened this one...but then...it was quick read for me, and I quite enjoyed it. I really liked the story, locations, plot, but I will not read it again. The book is worth of time spent on it, but knowing the story now I do not think it would as absorbing as it was for the first time. BTW. I think it could easily be twice as big as it is, some threads are rather shallow and it sometimes was somehow disappointing for me. I would really like to have more reading than I had. It was good book, four stars!
