Read full description of the books:
I am a bit of a fan of Geoffrey Moorhouse, so I found this book a little disappointing. I really enjoyed his The Fearful Void, which told of his travels through northern Africa, and I enjoyed his Apples in the Snow, about Uzbekistan. I had hoped to enjoy equally this book which covers southern India.
Somehow it just didn't capture me. It had some interesting side stories of people he met in various places, but overall it was sort of dry reading. Normally I can fight my way through that, and enjoy the good parts, but they were just too few and far between.
I have a couple more of his books in my shelf, and I will tackle them in due course!

Read information about the authorGeoffrey Moorhouse, FRGS, FRSL, D.Litt, was an English journalist and author. He was born Geoffrey Heald in Bolton and took his stepfather's surname. He attended Bury Grammar School. He began writing as a journalist on the Bolton Evening News. At the age of 27, he joined the Manchester Guardian where he eventually became chief feature writer and combined writing book with journalism.
Many of his books were largely based on his travels. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society in 1972, Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1982, and received an honorary Doctor of Letters from the University of Warwick. His book To The Frontier won the Thomas Cook Award for the best travel book of its year in 1984. He had recently concentrated on Tudor history, with The Pilgrimage of Grace and Great Harry's Navy. He lived in a hill village in North Yorkshire. In an interview given at the University of Tuebingen in 1999, he described his approach to his writing.
All three of Moorhouse's marriages ended in divorce. He had two sons and two daughters, one of whom died of cancer in 1981. He died aged 77 of a stroke on 26 November 2009 and is survived by both sons and one daughter.
