THE LAST OVERLAND Singapore to London: The Return Journey of the Iconic Land Rover Expedition

by | Read by Alex Bescoby

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

In a tone of romantic adventure, Alex Bescoby narrates his account of the 2019 road expedition he led from Singapore to London--16,000 miles. Retracing a famed 1950s expedition, which took place in an Oxford model Land Rover, Bescoby travels roughly the same course under the guidance of Tim Slessor, who was also part of the earlier journey. As they prepare for the current trip, the hearty debate over the safest route reveals how the world has changed since the mid-twentieth century. Bescoby shows good humor as he slips in the occasional quip about regulations and bureaucratic hassles. He often shifts into a philosophical tone about the nature of travel or the health issues of a family member. Bescoby ends with a 2020 visit with Slessor, which reminds listeners that the world has changed even more in just a few years. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
