    A reviewer

    When I travel I like to get a feel for the people, their attitudes, their values and their problems. I get a good bit of that from this book about the people who now live on the Silk Road, the ancient connection between China and the West. If Kyrgyzstan is to you a meaningless place on a map or if you never heard of the Uighurs in western China, Colin Thubron brings them alive as real people, as though you were there with him meeting them yourself. I'm very glad I read this book. If your travel interests are similar to mine I very much recommend it.

    I highly recommeded this book

    An irresistible storyteller and with accurate observations. Also, he takes the reader on roads less traveled. The only recommendations is to go online/tv to update the information. Joanne

    Thubron just loves Central Asia

    I have a soft spot in my heart for anyone who travels to Central Asia and writes about the region's people. If you intend to travel to this part of the world, this is a good book to buy. Another great book is The Opportunists by Yohann de Silva. Its a fiction/thriller that presents modern day Uzbekistan through a really interesting page-turner. The story is fiction but the context is 100% accurate.
