If you're impressed by adventure, this book is fabulous. It's a great read because it's incredibly honest.
Charley and Ewan fulfill a dream with this trip and they are aware of it through out, even when it seemed impossible to continue.
It's a great ride.

After reading this book I was gungho to buy a bike and set off on an adventure of my own.Then I remembered I haven't owned or rode a bike for 20 years so I settled for reading this book which took me to places most people only dream of seeing.The diary style in which it was written was the only way the authors could take the reader with them on this tremendous journey.I am in the process of reading Long Way Down and it is already making me long for the open road and a good friend to enjoy it with.

If you ride and even if you don't this is a fascinating book. It manages to intertwind geographical facts with real life drama, keeping it interesting all the way.

What a great journey. Too bad they spent most of it complaining about the terrain, roads, mozzies, and how much they missed their families and "everyday" things at home.
