Cons: Some of the backstory can be a little dull. Although I think it is necessary to the story as a whole. I think the trip through North America could have been a little longer.
I had recently seen the 7 hour version of their video series and wanted to hear if maybe more information would be on the Audio version as I wasn't familiar with the ride when it happened in 2004.
Overall it follows along with the video version pretty well with not too many aspects not covered in the TV series. The audio book is about 5 hours and I would have liked it better if either; 1. Ewan and Charley had voiced this version or 2. they had found different sounding readers. The person reading for Charley Boorman's sections sounded more like Ewan McGregor to me which got me mixed up on who was supposed to be talking at that point and the guy for Ewan's parts didn't sound like either of them! After while I did get used to it but I think it would have been better if they'd read it themselves. The 'extra' interview of Boorman was interesting also.
I still enjoyed hearing of their adventure as much as watching the video of their trip now almost 10 years ago! Their trips, this and "Long Way Down" to Africa started the "Adventure Bike" style that's still going strong.
