Upcoming SlideShare. Paul Theroux. Word Wise: Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: Contemporaneous reviews noted how his background allowed him the breadth of insights to authoritatively describe people even when there are instances when he committed ethnic generalizations.
In Theroux was a struggling novelist barely scraping by in London with wife and kid when he got the idea to take trains across Europe and Asia write a book about it.
Good idea. It made his career that, and his long, fortuitous association with Nobel laureate V. Naipaul, who served as his mentor and entree in literary London. Re-reading The Great Railway Bazaar after some 30 years I found that it still intrigued--though I was struck by how sardonic Theroux is throughout. But that sarcasm and wit kept me turning pages--along with his novelist's craft, an eye for anomaly, and a string of eccentric characters he encounters on his route.
The book also serves up some time traveling--gone now are Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, the Shah of Iran, Ceylon, and Burma, at least in name. Also affecting was the knowledge, from today's perspective, of the wars and horrors soon to be visited in coming decades on the people he meets across both Europe and Asia.
Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. There is nothing like a good travel book to relax with after the usual stresses of the day, especially for those who might never expect to travel through, e.
The publication date of takes us back to those years when "hippies" were everywhere, including, as Paul Theroux informs us, on trains in exotic places. His descriptions of these personalities and many others encountered give us a picture of hardened, selfish, unrealistic individuals presumably on a spiritual quest. As great as this book is, and as highly recommended as it is, the reader's steadfast traveling companion can only be the author and what he sees and experiences, and Theroux sees through a glass very darkly.
Travel experiences in retrospect have what can be identified as their highest and lowest points, highest meaning a moment of realization, a discovery of human goodness and genuine spirituality that brings the potential for a true change in outlook regarding human beings and human conditions.
Theroux's books lack these latter nourishing views of life, so that the reader becomes as tired as he does near the merciful end of his months-long journey with his usual heavy consumption of alcohol on the Siberian Express, with everything utterly boring, and with time passing painfully slow The account has to be honest about "the way it is," but at one point Theroux is telling all of the insipid travelers he encounters that he is a dentist, in order to avoid engaging them about his lifework, causing one poor fellow to consult him about his decaying teeth.
Theroux advises him to seek treatment as soon as possible, and gives him two aspirins. The author may not be able to be called a "misanthrope" in the strict definition of the word, but he comes close.
So this is our traveling companion in the otherwise "great railway bazaar," and there is no letup in the way that he sees and experiences life. See all reviews.
