    A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar
    There are quite fine passages mixed in with others that did not measure up. She shows sensitive insights to those from vastly different cultures. With maturity there is almost a certainty she will become a fine, creative writer. The negatives will not prevent reading every page.

    Not what I was hoping for...
    This fiction has a great premise "lady adventurers trekking through Asia." Its execution, however, left me cold. For me, I wish it had lived up to its marketing.

    Not a Favorite
    This book is two stories in one with some chapters taking place in the early 1920s and the other chapters set in present day. The first part of the book, I'm sorry to say, bored me, but I felt obligated to read on. About half way through the book, the present day story started to show signs of becoming interesting. At that point, I continued to read only the chapters that took place in present day and that part of the book turned out to be a decent story. I have no desire to go back and read the unread chapters.
    I was somewhat irritated to read the back cover of the book where it equated this book to Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, two of my favorite books; in my opinion, this book was not in the same league.
