Editorial Reviews


“What makes the book is [Rajesh's] wit, astute observations and willingness to try everything ... She arrived at St Pancras, on time, tired and triumphant. Her riveting account of the odyssey leaves us feeling the same” ―The Times

"Here, she boards the Eurostar from London’s St Pancras station to travel 45,000 miles on trains through Russia, China, Japan, Canada, the U.S., North Korea, and beyond." - National Geographic, "12 Travel Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down"

Delightful ... memorable ... Rajesh is not only blessed with an elegant style, but is witty and ever ready for a bit of self-deprecation” ―Spectator

“As Monisha Rajesh triumphantly demonstrates in Around the World in 80 Trains, there's life yet in both the trip and the telling” ―Daily Telegraph

“Monisha Rajesh has chosen one of the best ways of seeing the world. Never too fast, never too slow, her journey does what trains do best. Getting to the heart of things. Prepare for a very fine ride” ―Michael Palin

“Rajesh [is] a rare rising star of the genre … She has a simple and easy style, she sees everything and listens to everyone, she's funny when she wants to be and serious when she needs to be, and she keeps the whole thing barrelling along like a wonderful dinner party conversation” ―Marcus Berkmann, Daily Mail

“A relentlessly curious and wonderfully descriptive writer … [Rajesh] offers us a never-ending series of Theroux-esque, quirky anecdotes … Remarkably engaging … If you fancy learning about global travel in the relative slow lane, try boarding this carriage and staring out the window – here you can view the world through Rajesh's eyes, as she takes us on a lazy, time-bending meander in search of authenticity and humanity” ―Geographical

“An epic journey … When I say that I felt almost physically tired at the end of this book, I mean it as a compliment, a testament to its vivid evocations” ―Country Life

A triumph: a rollicking account, full of memorable encounters and laced with wit … Rajesh is an elegant stylist with a winning line in self-depreciation; hers is a delightful book” ―The Week

This is travel-writing entirely at home in the 21st century, penned by a travel writer entirely comfortable in her own skin, and unashamedly enthused by the thrill of setting out to meet new people and to see new places” ―Asian Review of Books

“A wonderfully wry and witty debut. Crackles and sparks with life like an exploding box of Diwali fireworks” ―Praise for Around India in 80 Trains, William Dalrymple

Rajesh's quick-fire writing is unflinchingly frank, with details packed in as tightly as passengers on Mumbai's commuter trains. A lively read” ―Praise for Around India in 80 Trains, Lonely Planet Magazine

“A great big lovely shambling train ride of a book, offering wonderful views, hilarious interludes, all sorts of dodgy characters and some very peculiar smells, all for the one ticket” ―Praise for Around India in 80 Trains, Giles Coren, The Times
