    To start with, the idea of traveling around in India in trains is exciting enough to pick up this book. But its not long before you realize that the author lacks style and skill to do justice to such great subject. Still she manages to hold it together till the end and you don't find finishing the book too much of a challenge, provided you are a Indian railways fan.

    I read it to my boys at bedtime and, surprisingly, at times the book was quite boring for them. Loads of descriptions. But since it was going better and better every day.
