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

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.

Nicola, Merseyside

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

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 July 2010
Format: Hardcover
`Right to the Edge' is Charley Boorman's journey from Sydney to Japan via any form of transport he can arrange or come across. This is very similar to his previous journeys and if you are familiar with them then you know what to expect from this. Charley (and friends) travel from place to place sampling a variety of the local delights and travelling in forms of transport. These are as diverse as cars, rickshaws, Jeepneys, Spitfire planes, the ubiquitous motorcycles, boats and way more besides. This is written with Charley's usual sense of humour and yet again, as with his other solo travels, there doesn't seem to be the same levels of tensions and arguments that are prevalent in his travels with Ewan McGregor. This book basically recounts the exploits from the TV series, as well as a few more for good measure. Some of the adventures are in a different order from the series (due to TV editing), but the core journey is the same. This takes in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan and finally Japan. This book has four separate colour photo plates that illustrate the various things Charley experienced reasonably well and show the countries and people off wonderfully. All in all this is another fine travelogue from Boorman and is a worthy addition to the other books he has written.
