Zak Dychtwald immersed himself in life in China; he rode the railways, learned the language, and now tells us about it. Dychtwald gives his storytelling an energetic delivery that makes his experiences all the more fascinating. He will have listeners laughing as his friends tell him his attempts to speak Chinese are "cute." He also recounts his experiences answering a range of questions about life in America to rapt audiences on late-night trains. One such question: Has he ever visited Hotel California? Dychtwald explains the differences in the four tones used in Mandarin Chinese at a pace that will help the unfamiliar soak them up--a wonderful reason to listen to this book instead of reading it in print. He will stun listeners with his linguistic dexterity and knowledge of a complex country. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
