    One thought on “High Road To Tibet”

    1. This was a really good read must have been a wonderful journey to experience.After reading it, you will probably want to make some kind of journey yourself - you have been warned.

    2. I had the odd experience of reading about a third of this book and listening to 2/3 on my Kindle, one of the features is experimenting with. The audio wasn't too bad, accents on wrong syllables sometimes, and rushing through periods with no breath, and the voice slightly mechanical. But I like this feature if they can iron out the kinks. That said, I am always fascinated by books in this part of the world. High Road to Tibet has some great scenes, like being smothered by Tibetans in the back of [...]

    3. I believe this would be my second "Travelogue" book and I must say, while the other one I read wasn't bad, I liked this one a lot better.John goes from China, makes his way to Tibet, goes to Nepal and finally to India.That all sounds so glamorous except that, he did it the "local" way. That means, public transport. I don't know about Tibet/Nepal/India (though I have my suspicions) but, I know for a fact that Chinese public transport: bus, vans, trains, are not really glam.I was still in familiar [...]

    4. Yesterday I had a day of waiting in the hospital and I started this book today I already finished it.I liked the book, they way John describes everything he walked in to. I think this book will give a good impression how things worked in those country's. I would have liked the book even more if it was twice as tick with even more stories and people he saw on his trip.I love reading this kind of books and I will for sure read it another time. If you like travel stories which give you a lot of inf [...]

    5. Another whirlwind travelogue. Choppy. A running commentary that lacks cohesion; a series of events in a chronological order. The descriptions are good, his reflections interesting but something missing.

    6. An entertaining and observational account of one man's travels in China and Tibet. Some good tips and tricks of the trade, combined with anecdotal, observational commentary and a wry look at some of the tourist sites he visits and characters he meets.

    7. A well written, fun read. His writing style is intriguing and makes you want to either keep reading or put the book down and join him on his travels.

    8. I enjoyed reading this, though I wish it was more of a narrative instead of anecdotes patched together. I couldn't decipher what was exaggerations or hyperbole though!

    9. It is really a short, simple story, but lovable. I was about to travel to the area, and really appreciated this type of book.
