Review

The book serves as an engrossing window into the nascent colossus that is China...where much that's written about the country is concerned with the big picture, this worm's-eye view is fascinating. (The Metro)

I'm not sure Rob Lilwall knows it, but he has penned a two-wheeled classic. I wanted to rise up singing and strap on my bicycle clips. (The Guardian (for CYCLING HOME FROM SIBERIA))

Lilwall has a wonderful ability to inspire trust in his readers (The Guardian (for CYCLING HOME FROM SIBERIA))

Lilwall's story is a remarkable one...enhanced by the fact that he has a writer's skill for conveying a sense of place. (The Sunday Telegraph (for CYCLING HOME FROM SIBERIA))

A rite of passage adventure, full of thrills, excitement and endurance tests (The Irish Times (for CYCLING HOME FROM SIBERIA))

Rob Lilwall is such a transparently decent, honest and likeable bloke that it is difficult not to become involved in the highs and lows of his journey...Ever since Odysseus, the traveller has returned home to find himself wiser and more fulfilled than when he departed. Rob Lilwall is no exception. (TES (for CYCLING HOME FROM SIBERIA))

Full piece on Walking Home from Mongolia (Geographical Magazine)

Here Lilwall sets off on another epic quest...This cracking story is the perfect addition to anyone's library of adventure books. (Thomas Saunders Compass Magazine)

It chronicles comedic run-ins, police interrogations, partying with nomads, encounters with cave dwellers and casual brushes with villagers in China. (Time Out HK)

Rob Lilwall has been interviewed for Outlook on the BBC World Service (BBC World Service)

Book Description
