      i wanted to like this book. Its a subject that interests me. But frankly his description of his travels were a bit tedious and one dimensional.

    2. Neil Jenkins on said:

      Didn't finish. Didn't find it too engaging. I preferred a book called 'An Australian in China'

      Didn't get too far into this before I had to return it to the library. Maybe someday I'll try it again.
