A fabulous book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shadow of the Silk Road (Paperback)
I read this whilst travelling along the silk road through Uzbekistan. Thubron writes beautifully and with real emotion about the people and the places he visits, and evokes a real sense of what it's like to be there. I loved it - it made my journey so much more enjoyable and helped me understand the history, geography and culture of the place. Since returning from Uzbekistan, I've read a few books about Central Asia - but it's Thubron's book I remember. I'm about to embark on exploring some of his other titles, albeit from the comfort of my own home. Thanks Colin!
