This review is from: The Big Red Train Ride (Picador Books) (Paperback)
Informative, but that's about the best I can say about this book. Newby obviously did not enjoy the ride or writing about it. The characters are wooden and superficially drawn, and strangely we learn nothing worthwhile about the author or his wife, who was dragged along for the ride. Presumably this work was commissioned by the publishers, who should have known better. In short, this is old-fashioned journalistic hack-work.
