If this book was't narrated by Jonathan Keeble, then this only star will certainly have to disappear. Jonathan Keeble is a great narrator but this book has not done him justice. The story is very hard to follow. I just want to resell this audiobook which I know I would never listen to again (I stopped after I finished one third of it).

This is a good story - it rolls along at a good pace and on several fronts. Several parts of the story are woven together with a few surprises along the way and it is an adventure with a little bit of culture. Having been in Tibet, I enjoyed the descriptions and understood the Buddhist links in the story but not sure I would have completely understood what was going on at times without this background.
Still, a really good story to listen to - kept me gripped all the way through and made a really long drive pass very quickly. Well read with a great variety of voices coming through.

...as opposed to 'Deathless' prose. A profoundly unoriginal (Shangri-La, revisited) and tedious story.
Well read but , that key element, I didn't care about the vividly two-dimensional characters or what happened next. The author telegraphs his plot direction and hams it up with his villains, his 'angry young man' comes across as spoiled and petulant, my will to keep listening seeped away, making quite a mess in the process!
