Radio Shangri-La was a quick, entertaining read but had some faults. The parts about the newly-emerging democracy was informative but boring and read like a newspaper article. I felt like the book didn't know what to be and oscillated between being a "finding yourself" novel and a memoir about an exotic country.

Despite its shortcomings, I would still recommend this to anyone who likes reading about foreign countries. I love reading about everyday, non-tourist life in countries like Bhutan.
