    There are very few occasions where my enjoyment of a book will depend on liking the protagonist of the story or, in the case of nonfiction, the way the author portrays him or herself Full Tilt is such a case Dervla Murphy gives an account of her incredible journey, travelling from Ireland to India via bicycle or rather, from Iran to India, because the first leg of the journey is dealt within the first twenty pages She relies on her letters and diary entries, leaving them standing on th There are very few occasions where my enjoyment of a book will depend on liking the protagonist of the story or, in the case of nonfiction, the way the author portrays him or herself Full Tilt is such a case Dervla Murphy gives an account of her incredible journey, travelling from Ireland to India via bicycle or r...

    Finished.oh thank goodness I m so glad that I m done this book The only thing that kept me pushing through was the fact that I was reading it for a class I thought that Dervla s adventures were interesting, and that she was incredibly eager to get into the craziest situations, but I m not a fan of her form of storytellingat all I understand it s in diary form, but I would have much preferred the focus to be on the environment, the different things that she describes as being beautiful, Finished.oh thank goodness I m so glad that I m done this book The only thing that kept me pushing through was the fact that I was reading it for a class I thought that Dervla s adventures were interesting, and that she was incredibly eager to get into the craziest situations, but I m not a fan of her form of storytellingat all I understand it s in diary form, but I would have much preferred the focus to be on the environment, the different things that she describes as being beautiful, so basically the things she sees We get the most extraneous details on her meals, and on the people she stays with The food part would have been good if she d just described the crazy dishes, but for the m...

    This book left me with mixed feelings The high points are, the awesome journey, the grittiness of the lady and the authentic feel of the trip through day to day fluctuating emotions thoughts It surely gave a good picture of the 1960s in the middle east, Afghanistan and Pakistan and her non judgemental attitude which sometimes is a bit too patronizing made the reading enjoyable.The low points are Near empty description about her journey in Europe and India the Indian part of journey was ver This book left me wi...

    I actually read a 1965 edition of this book, so I don t know if it has been edited in the intervening years or just reprinted This is a fascinating story of a woman s bicycle ride from Ireland to India It glosses over the European journey despite beginning in the dead of winter and focuses on her time in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan Despite many dire warnings about traveling in Muslim countries in the 60s, she went on and embraced their culture and hospitality There s a fair amount of p I actually read a 1965 edition of this book, so I don t know if it has been edited in the intervening years or just reprinted This is a fascinating story of a woman s bicycle ride from Ireland to India It glosses over the European journey despite beginning in the dead of winter and focuses on her time in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan Despite many dire warnings about traveling in Muslim countries in the 60s, she went on and embraced their culture and hospitality There s a fair amount of plucky European adventurer in the book One thing that really struck me was the way language has changed in the 45 odd years s...

    This is an incredible book a wonderful description of cycling from Ireland to India, but specifically through Afghanistan and Pakistan Some of Dervla s feats had my mouth hanging open as I read, and the scenery she describes is utterly fantastic making me very sad that it s unlikely I ll be able to take such a trip in my lifetime Having read some of Dervla s later works first I also found it really interesting how her thoughts moved on over time, for example on women in traditional Islamic This is an incredible book a wonderful description of cycling from Ireland to India, but specifically through Afghanistan and Pakistan Some of Dervla s feats had my mouth hanging open as I read, and...

    I love the nonchalant way Dervla describes what was an incredibly challenging bike journey across Europe, and Central and South Asia in the 1960s After reading her descriptions of the utter generosity of the Afghan and Pakistani people and the beauty of the landscapes, you ll be left with an appreciation for a region whose reputation has been sadly and unfairly marred post 9 11 While the very occasional racist terminology prevalent in the 60s might jar modern r...
