one of my favorite books in the last few years. opinionated, witty, adventurous, and a powerhouse of a young woman, this author tackles the mountains of central asia on a BICYCLE and has no prejudices in meeting people from the most foreign of lands. so much insight that is still remarkably relevant 50 yrs later. a MUST READ!

"Fult Tilt" is an engaging book penned by a born adventurer.

It glosses over a bit on some of the details I was curious about: the tour portion out of Ireland for instance.

Also, her preparations for such a formidable trip would have set the mood nicely.

Some of the travel arrangements (visas, border crossings, etc.) are downright quaint in contrast to today's rigid bureacracies. And on a historical level the book is icompelling (eg. as Murphy travels through 'the iron curtain,' and experiences an Afghanistan where the seeds of modern-day dischord are being sown).

It's a book to read for Murphy's humour and vivid, quick-witted writing style, not a book you'd read as a practical 'how-to' guide. A story that will inspire even the most intrepid cycle tourist.
