In Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Paul Theroux retraces the steps he took thirty years ago in his classic The Great Railway Bazaar. From the Eurostar in London, he once again sets out on a journey to the East, travelling overland through Eastern Europe, India and Asia. Infused with the changes that have shaped the exterior landscape and enriched with developments to his own perceptions and psychology, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star is an absorbing and beautifully written follow-up to The Great Railway Bazaar.

    " He isn't as grumpy as in earlier books. At first I thought he was getting mellow. As I read more I realized he was just maudlin. This reconfirms my conclusion that I have read too many of his books. "

    " I loved this book and found that Theroux's description of south and east Asia really brought his experiences to life for me. I agree with other comments about him being slightly narcissistic, and and I also found his obsession with seeking out the sex workers across eastern Asia bordering on the perverse. But the book is so well written, and leaves me wanting to plan a train adventure of my own. "

    " I enjoyed Theroux's observations and snipets of information on the history and customs of different countries. I am now a fan! "

    " You will learn from this book that prostitution is everywhere in Asia and that the author does not like George W. Bush. In addition, you will likely be entertained by the hundreds of stories of encounters with different people and cultures. They don't amount to much -- that personal reporting of specific events that makes up travel writing. But sometimes that's what you want, and the writing is very good. "
