In 2008, an Australian radio host set out on a drive from Melbourne to London with his son. (Naturally, the car took the first part by boat.) The pair alternate in the reading, bringing both the methodical, thoughtful voice of Jon's experience and the bolder, brasher voice of Jack's youth to the narration. They read their account with humor, including digressions about their musical choices for the journey and their hunt for the perfect mahjong set. The travelers also use rich descriptive language that brings listeners along for the ride. It's not an everyday trip, and this is an equally rare travelogue.
