Jonathan Crowley is an exceptional narrator for this round-the-world tour of some of the planet's most austere places. His intonation of this quintessentially British audiobook--eccentric, erudite, and eloquent--allows listeners to feel they're inside the author's mind. This audiobook charts a geographic excursion from Australia to Kazakhstan to the Sonoran Desert; it also maps Atkins's spiritual awakening with the most vivid and intimate writing about Nevada's Burning Man event anywhere, and with remarkable scenes set in an isolated Egyptian monastery. Cowley achieves a remarkable verisimilitude in his exacting rendition of this imagistic and evocative travelogue. This audiobook will satisfy those interested in politics and environmental concerns--and those who cherish solitude. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
