The book is not so much about bicycling along the silk road, or even bicycling at all, but more about the characters life experiences in all maters, school, boyfriends, etc. I wish I could return it and select a different book.
The reader makes it even worse with airy breaths while reading aloud. Very irritating narrator. The voice was super hard for me to follow along. Add that to the actual story being read and you are in for a long boring book.
Good luck if you choose to listen.
Worst book I have listened to all year . Boring story line and very poor narration
Fascinating listen to a part of the world we don’t get to see. And that Kate did it on her bicycle with a friend, was heroic
