This is the third of Peart's 'road' books that I have read, the others being Roadshow and Travelling Music. If you enjoyed either of those, you will enjoy this one. The insights he gives into his experiences riding his BMW motorcycle between Rush tour dates across Europe and the US provide an alternative view of life on the road as a rock 'n' roll drummer. There are interesting asides that offer glimpses into drum lessons with Pete Erskine and Freddie Gruber, his home life, the birth of his daughter and his general philosophies on life, nature and the environment. There are some anecdotes for the drum obsessed Rush fans but, for the most part, this is a travel book detailing what it may be like to ride tens of thousands of miles in many different terrains, staying at different hotels every night, and muddling through.

Its strength? It continues in the vein of his earlier works as he shares his adventures and those of his travelling companions.

Its weakness? It continues in the vein of his earlier works as he shares his adventures and those of his travelling companions.

Been a fan of Neil's writing for many years. He inspired me to read Ayn Rand back in high school as the Rush album 2112 was inspired by her. Neil's a very interesting guy in that beyond drumming, he is well read, well traveled and a nice Canadian guy. The journey's he takes on his motorcycle are long and amazing. I also appreciate the relationship he has with those he travels with. Even letting us in on the dark sense of humour that occasionally comes through with his riding companion after a long day of riding / working as a touring musician. The book is written in the same vein as the others, with perhaps a few more pictures than the others, but a good read nonetheless. I look forward to the next book, hoping he takes us down another twisty road both in words and travels.

Please do not think that this book is written for the appreciation of motorcyclists only. It is not and as a 'non' motorcyclist I could not put this book down. Superbly written and if you are not a fan of Rush, you soon will be just from reading Neil Peart's philosophies about the world around him which is conveyed in his lyrics.
A brilliant read.

Far and Away shows how Neil Peart's writing is developing and exploring new boundaries. His writing is tight and expressive while evoking powerful mental images of the places he has been and the things he experiences. Well done Mr Peart. Keep up the great work.

This is the style of writing that takes the reader on the trip, I find Neals writing informative, funny at times and sad at others. He comes across as highly intelligent with his insight on prose and flaura and fauna.
