Colin Thubron's ten-thousand-mile auto trip across Russia is a reference work of how things were there a mere five years ago. It's also an inverted mystery because the listener knows the outcome before beginning the journey--an outcome the author never could have imagined. Frank Duncan is a gentle reader who easily wears the mantle of authenticity. He guides the armchair tourist through the vast expanses of diverse territories. We hear clearly the author's excitement, fatigue and fears. J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 94]
