    4.5 out of 5 stars 78

From London to New York, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, then down through Canada and America. But as the miles slipped beneath the tyres of their big BMWs, their troubles started. Exhaustion, injury and accidents tested their strength. Treacherous roads, unpredictable weather and turbulent politics challenged their stamina. They were chased by paparazzi in Kazakhstan, courted by men with very large guns in the Ukraine, hassled by the police, and given bulls' testicles for supper by Mongolian nomads.

This book absolutely enthralled me from the start! I have read the second book so was pretty much aware of what format it would be in.This book is not just for motorbike lovers or travel buffs,but there's something there for everyone,it was also my first foray into the Audio format! Great I could still listen while cooking,cleaning - I loved it,given the option I would've gone for the Unabridged version as it ended oh too quickly for my liking. Well done and thank you Audible for introducing me to a whole new world of books. As for Ewan & Charlie it was fantastic to hear both of your views on the same events and can only imagine what it would have taken to complete such an amazing,once in a life-time journey! this book deserves the five out of five that I gave it,(and more!).
