Summary, et. In Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Theroux recreates an epic journey he took thirty years ago, a giant loop by train (mostly) through Eastern Europe, Turkey, the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, China, Japan, and Siberia. In short, he traverses all of Asia top to bottom, and end to end. In the three decades since he first travelled this route, Asia has undergone phenomenal change. The Soviet Union has collapsed, China has risen, India booms, Burma slowly smothers, and Vietnam prospers despite the havoc unleashed upon it the last time Theroux passed through
Thirty years after the epic journey chronicled in his classic work The Great Railway Bazaar, the world’s most acclaimed travel writer re-creates his 25,000-mile journey through eastern Europe, central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, China, Japan, and Siberia. Half a lifetime ago, Paul Theroux virtually invented the modern travel narrative by recounting his grand tour by train through Asia. In the three decades since, the world he recorded in that book has undergone phenomenal change. The Soviet Union has collapsed and China has risen; India booms while Burma smothers under dictatorship; Vietnam.

My proposed trip to retrace the itinerary of The Great Railway Bazaar was mainly curiosity on my part, and the usual idleness, with a hankering to be away; but this had been the case thirty-three years before, and it had yielded results. All writing is launching yourself into the darkness, and hoping for light and a soft landing.

The great tragedy of the book is the observation that all things change and not always for the better. Having aged, as has Paul, in the 25 plus years since I read Great Railway Bazaar we are not the same young, daring adventurer that left London and headed out so many years ago. Time and politics has caused him to alter his travel route and by default the people he will meet in his journey. At times the book has a tone of returning for your high school 40 year reunion an being schocked at how old people seem and disappointed that the vivacious cheer leader or robust quarterback have gray hair.

In 2008-published Ghost Train, Theroux goes back, but not in a tedious way. The trip is not an exact replica of his 1981 itinerary, given he can’t get a visa to Iran, and he assesses that Afghanistan is too dangerous. But from London again he takes in central Europe and Turkey, central Asia, India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Japan and Russia. Theroux is acutely self-conscious of being that annoying traveller who insists you should have been here yesterday, so his observations remain astute.

This triumphant similarity is no coincidence: In Ghost Train, Theroux retraces the journey he made in Railway Bazaar, traveling by rail (resorting to a few bus, ferry, and plane rides when unavoidable) from England to Japan and back. For Theroux, train travel is "probably the best way of getting a glimpse of how people actually live-the back yards, the barns, the hovels, the side roads and slums, the telling facts of village life, the misery that airplanes.
