The third and most ambitious of Michael Palin's adventures is a voyage of epic proportions - the circumnavigation of the Pacific Rim. He travels for almost a year through the 18 countries that border the world's largest ocean, and is forced to negotiate mountains, plunging gorges, cross glaciers and dodge icebergs. Volcanoes also mark Palin's journey. He climbs one which has freshly erupted and follows great rivers like the Yangtze and the Amazon to some of the most remote places on earth. He also eats maggots in Mexico and talks to head-hunters in Borneo.

Full Circle is the record of a journey of several lifetimes and of the colourful and beautiful world that stretches around the Pacific Ocean.

    " This book is fascinating, anyone who loves to travel will appreciate this book which is written in diary form by the ex Montypython man, Michael Palin. His sense of humour makes one laugh out loud as he circumnavigates the Pacific Rim - full of funny anecdotes "

    " Deligthful account of an incredible journey. Does the trick of a good travel book: makes you itch to go and experience it yourself. "

    " It's ok, nowt special & was a real struggle to finish it. Better to watch the TV shows I think as ive learnt very little or got any real insite into places that he's visited. "

    " I liked this book, but somehow it's not my favourite Palin travel book. However, the encounters with all kinds of people are great reading material. "

    " Though it's more than a decade old already, I thoroughly enjoyed this journey around the Pacific Rim. Palin's verbosity is much better served in this forum ;) An excellent, heartwarming trek. Stunning photography. Now I want to watch the series. "

    " Good old Palin, you can't go wrong! I particularly enjoyed his accounts of Japan and South America. "

    " really enjoyed this book. was the third that i read, and really, was just as good as the first two. i have to say though, that as much as i love the books, i don't really care for the tv show as much. odd. "

    " Enjoyable read I felt at times as though I was on the journey! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Whelan | 4/25/2013

    " Read this a number of years ago as my introduction to travel writing. Pailin's narration made me feel like I was actually watching his show. Made me want to up sticks, pack a bag and trek to new horizons. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tony | 4/1/2013

    " Fairly pedestrian read - nowhere in the class of Bill Bryson for example. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrian Jenkins | 3/18/2013

    " Another great book and TV series from Michael Palin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 1/11/2013

    " My fourth Michael Palin and perhaps my favorite as Palin circles the Pacific Rim, hitting almost every country except those in Central America. What's with that? Great photography. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Millin | 11/6/2012

    " The account of his trip around the Pacific - written in his interestingly rye (?) style. Interesting as it included places I have heard about from other members of the family - makes me want to travel even more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 10/28/2012

    " I listened to the audiobook with Michael Palin himself as the narrator. He gives vivid accounts of the crew's over 200 day-journey along the Pacific Rim. I laughed many times while listening. Palin is a highly professional entertainer with a great variation in accents, dialects and perspectives. "
