This is a charming travel book about past and present-day Hong Kong, the last of England’s Crown Colonies. Nadia May does an entertaining reading, with the right notes of irony and bewilderment at the oddities of this giant city. Her English accent goes perfectly with Morris’s English style and humor. The text itself is designed to entertain, as well as inform, and works well in the audio format. The book may be of special interest because the last chapter deals with the return of Hong Kong to China in 1997. W.W.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 96]
