Book Description

2 Sep 2010

Charley Boorman is back in the saddle for a brand-new, adrenaline-fuelled adventure!

He begins his journey racing north from Sydney up the Gold Coast, where he hitches a ride in a Spitfire. In Papua New Guinea he takes a hand-made canoe through tropical rainforest to stay in a remote tribal village almost untouched by the outside world. He drives a tuk-tuk made of bamboo in the Philippines, rides with the Mad Dog biker gang in Manila and eats deep-fried crickets in Taiwan before reaching his final destination in Tokyo.

From active volcanoes to coffee plantations to hilltop monasteries, Charley takes an exhilarating ride through some of the most spectacular countries in the world. Fast paced and fascinating, Right to the Edge is a gripping read from one of our very best travel-adventure writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travel and strife 27 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover
Charley Boorman as a pure travel writer is up there with the likes of Michael Palin and Victoria Woods with his interesting and at times very amusing descriptions of the countries he visits and the people he meets.

For the 'petrol head'his sheer joy of riding any motor bike comes over in his descriptions of pulling wheelies, riding in driving rain, and even falling off demonstrate his lifetime enthusiasm for bikes
However, a part of travel writing rarely touched on by other writers is the very honest sharing of his homesickness for his wife and daughters,& his black moods when the frustrations due to the delays to the journey darken his normal cheerful narrative .
If you love travel and all things mechanical, this is for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, Exciting Read 14 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have never read any of Charley's books before but decided to buy this one after hearing about it on the TV. It is an amazing read and you really feel that you are there with Charley, with his description of events, having you captured. This is a real page turner and opens your eyes to different ways of life and customs all over the world.

I loved it.

3.0 out of 5 stars its ok but..... 23 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was a bit heavy going and seemed to start and stop and going backwards. When it picked up tempo I thought great but then it was back to being slow and to be honest a bit dull
