Publisher's Summary

Available for the first time in audio, Steve Coll's trek across a socially and politically damaged South Asia.
Best-selling author Steve Coll is one of the preeminent journalists of the 21st century. His last two books, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ghost Wars and New York Times best-seller The Bin Ladens, have been praised for their creative insight and complex yet compelling narratives - and have put him on par with journalists such as the legendary Bob Woodward. Now, for the first time ever, the audio edition of On the Grand Trunk Road is finally available, revised and updated with new material. Focusing on Coll's journeys in conflict-ridden India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Afghanistan as a bureau chief for The Washington Post, On the Grand Trunk Road reveals a little-seen area of the world where violence, corruption, and greed have had devastating effects on South Asians from all walks of life.

Another good book ruined by appalling narration

The narrator's unpredictable invention of punctuation where none exists ruins the listener's experience of this book. His giggle-inducing mispronunciation of South Asian names and words makes matters even worse.

Fascinating but out of date

Unfortunately I didn't realize that this was written in the early 1990's, and though much has not changed since then, it is still very out of date today.
