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. And yet despite all these obstacles they managed to ride more than twenty thousand miles in four months, changing their lives forever in the process. As they travelled they documented their trip, taking photographs, and writing diaries by the campfire. Long Way Round is the result of their adventures - a fascinating, frank and highly entertaining travel book about two friends riding round the world together and, against all the odds, realising their dream.

 A very good read but not in depth enough

I enjoyed reading Ewan and Charleys' account of their trip from London to New York but it left me a little disappointed.

Books that accompany TV programmes often go more into the details of the subject than the limited time the TV episodes allow. The TV series was 14 weeks travelling condensed to 9 one hour episodes (including 2 for preparation). I expected the book to fill in some of the gaps that had to be edited out, but found it to be pretty much just a re-telling in print or the TV programmes. After reading it i know no more about their trip than i did having watched them on TV.

I also found it a little self obsessive of Charley and Ewan. Here they were, on the trip of a lifetime, with careers that allowed them to indulge in such things, but they seemed to spend a lot of time writing about how they missed their families or were in a bad mood. I'd rather have read more about some of the incidents that didn't make it on to TV than read about how Charley was having another paddy or how Ewan couldn't believe he was a squillion miles from Eve and missing her.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good read and accompaniment to the TV series, but don't expect to learn anymore about what happened than you already know.

 A great read with extended depth

I have now both read and watched Long Way round and if you enjoyed the DVD you will deafinatly enjoy the book. Reading through it really feels like you are there with Ewan and Charley and there are some parts that aren't even in the DVD. It's deafinatly worth getting if you're a fan.
