The Great Railway Bazaar is Paul Theroux's account of his epic journey by rail through Asia. Filled with evocative names of legendary train routes - the Direct-Orient Express, the Khyber Pass Local, the Delhi Mail from Jaipur, the Golden Arrow to Kuala Lumpur, the Hikari Super Express to Kyoto, and the Trans-Siberian Express - it describes the many places, cultures, sights and sounds he experienced and the fascinating people he met.

one of the best I've listened to so far. Frank Muller is an excellent narator and Paul an excellent writer. Highly recommend for train buffs Nd travellers alike.

A 'take no prisoners' approach to life has seen Paul Carter heading to some of the world's most remote, wild and dangerous places as a contractor in the oil business. Taking postings in some of the world's wildest and most remote regions, Paul has worked in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and Tunisia and as flat out dangerous as Columbia, Nigeria and Russia, with some of the maddest and strangest people you could ever hope not to meet.

Couldnt finish it. Narrated so fast i was exhausted after the first chapter. No gaps in between sentences and the topics changed without a pause in breath. Very difficult to follow and not an enjoyable listen. Book was better.

Mort, like many teenagers, is gangly, unpromising, and struggling with a menial job - in his case, as Death's apprentice. He can barely handle his simple task of ushering souls out of Discworld, but he really screws up when he meets the beautiful Princess Keli, who is scheduled to be assassinated.
