He's the best travel writer working in English: a traveler, not a tourist, taking risks, uninterested in his own hardships. In Siberia is his best book yet. This is one of the few books that I've wanted to read again the moment I finished it.
The surreal and tragic effect of this book builds relentlessly as it goes along. By the end, I felt like I had a sense of a place that went well beyond a familiarity with appearance, to a much more important and difficult for an author to convey sense of what it feels like.

Highly recommended to anyone with interest in Russian history or remote places or off-the-beaten path adventures. In Siberia was my first exposure to Colin Thurbon and I must say that I found the book quite compelling --it was a wonderful and involving "long flight read" a very important criterion for me in my life.
