Paul theroux the author of the train travel classics the great railway bazaar and the old patagonian express takes to the rails once again in this account of his epic journey through china. Paul theroux invites you to join him on the journey of a lifetime in the grand romanttic tradition by train across euope through the vast underbelly of asia and in the heart of russia and then up to china. Paul theroux is a master writer and this observation is a very entertaining read his journey begins in europe as he takes the transasiatic train to an area where he can turn south and pass through mongolia and eventually into china where the true subject of the book begins suffice to say the reader is in for a major treat. Paul theroux riding the iron rooster by train through china ive reviewed several other of paul therouxs travel writings elsewhere and one of the things that has struck me time and again is that he tends to have a somewhat condescending attitude to the people he meets.
