Descripción del libro THE LAST TRAIN TO ZONA VEDE: OVERLAND FROM CAPE TOWN TO ANGOLA y sinopsis completa

The Last Train to the Green Zone is Paul Theroux's compelling account of his last journey through Africa.

Heading north from Cape Town, passing through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Angola, Paul Theroux makes one last trip along the western edge of Africa.

The end of the line is Congo, but Theroux discovers that the pleasures of his journey are tempered by the growing sense that the Africa that so long ago helped him form has disappeared, along with the hopes of many of its inhabitants.

However, after 2,500 miles, Theroux discovers that although this will be his last African adventure, the traveller still has surprises to find ready to leave the beaten track.

"A melancholy farewell journey...

Theroux does all of this inimitably, and more, improving as he takes more detours.

(Evening Standard).

"Hard to despise, brutal honesty.

Theroux proves to be a keen observer of human weaknesses and a master of concise description.

The book he has written based on his experiences is very successful.

(Spectator).

"While we worry about the future of the continent, there couldn't be a better guide than Theroux... his sense that this is his last journey adds to the power.

(GQ).

"Excellent, spiky report."

(Independent).

"Probably the most important travel writer of his generation."

(Sunday Times).

Paul Theroux's books include Dark Star Safari, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Riding the Iron Rooster, The Great Railway Bazaar, The Elephanta Suite, A Dead Hand, The Tao of Travel and The Lower River.

Mosquito Coast and Dr. Slaughter have become successful movies.

Paul Theroux divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian Islands.
