This review is from: Border Crossing: On the Road from Peking to Paris (Paperback)
As a fan of Rosie Thomas's fiction works I was browsing Amazon in search of one I had not read. I spotted this and was intrigued. Once I began reading I found that the book was almost un- put-down-able! I reluctantly found myself turning out my light at night. I wanted to reach the end to find out if Rosie and Phil did, but could not bear the thought of finishing such a gripping read. The book combines the features of a travelogue, including detailed pictures of places passed through, with the excitement of an adventure novel.Throw in the autobiographical detail, written with soul searching introspection, and you have a refreshing combination.
