Expected this book to give more indepth view than tv-series but it ended up being quite lame. The narrator of Ewans part has much stronger scottish accent than Ewan. And for someone not familiar to listening scottish it is annoyingly difficult to follow.
What disappointed you about Long Way Down?
The foundation of the book is that Charley and Ewan wanted to go on another long trip with as little hassle as possible whilst earning as much from merchandise as possible. This book is one of the parts of that story, but it feels like an aside, rather than a book in itself.<br/><br/>If you have seen the series don't bother with the book; there is very very little more in them (both of the series)
What do you think your next listen will be?
Is that thing diesel
What three words best describe Mark Bonnar and Rupert Degas ’s voice?
I'm not sure who is who, but I am afraid to say that the english bloke did a much better Ewan than the scot.
Having watched the series I decided to listen to the book. The narrative is great and broadly follows the TV version but has some nice insights into the detail that would not do well on TV.
The thing that drives you mad are the heavilly accented voices. The narrators are split to represent Ewan and Charlie with some awful heavy hollywood scottish voice for Ewan. After a while it really gets on your nerves and spoils an otherwise enjoyable boys book

I loved the documentary series and the book with Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman but these narrators have not got any resemblance to their voices. It ruined the whole experience.
