Andrew Eames spent two years travelling around South-East Asia and has written a fascinating, honest and compulsively readable account of his experiences. This is not a book that gives historical or political background to the region, but it does provide the reader with a very vivid picture of today's reality. Eames is also very frank about his own responses to places, people and other travellers, although there is obviously much that was left unwritten. ( )

If Eames had avoided such off-putting sentiments, his work would have spoken--eloquently--for itself, for he has a sharp eye and ear for the sights and sounds of his locales, as well as a keen understanding of the social, political, and economic implications of his surroundings. Conrad's spirit informs Eames throughout this book; let's hope that the young writer's experiences during, say, a storm-wracked journey from Bali to Moa or on a frozen mountain pass near Tibet will allow him to step-with Conrad across the shadow line in his next book.
