Eh. The travelogue is lacking a general theme. The text is OK, but not very engaging. The author doesn't seem to be on any mission except to observe things, and his wife is a non-character. The title is misleading, as only the last third of the book has anything to do with Tibet. The book ends abruptly, failing to draw any conclusions. Still some decent material in here.
