There's wanderlust in Monisha Rajesh's voice as she tells listeners of her dream of going on a global train adventure. After she and her husband ultimately travel on 79 trains, their relief at finding one last train conjures up images of Phileas Fogg and Passepartout in AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS. She describes delightful bento lunches and disappointing terra-cotta armies with an engaging wry humor. Her journey also takes her into serious territory. She conveys a survivor's story of crowds fleeing Hiroshima by train, and she takes a rare trip into North Korea. She even does the occasional impression of a fellow passenger, most often the brogue of Mark, who travels with the couple part of the way. Listeners may find themselves dreaming of future travels, albeit on a lesser scale. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
