Terrific and terrifying in equal measure: a life-affirming, death-welcoming journey around the world s most dangerous roads in a wheeled toaster oven.
Engrossing... Not since Trudy Culross's epic, It Gets Better After Cairo, 26 years ago, has a gung-ho female adventurer made chaos seem like such fun.
Able's 10,000km road trip trundles throught the bits often left out of tourist itineraries - with a few romantic divergencies - creating a rich snapshot of a colossal country.
Vanessa is a gem - her writing is as effervescent and refreshing as diving naked into a lake of Champagne.
Readable, funny and smart. Her meeting with the Maharaja of Omkareshwar provides a great episode, worthy of Gerald Durrell.
Travelling has never been this tough, never been this enjoyable and entertaining. A hilarious book, from an author that pulls no punches.
An excellent and entertaining book.
