Delightfully quirky […] tinged throughout with more than a faint sense of the absurd. Every twist and turn of the six-month voyage by land and see there (and back) is described […]but the best moments come with the colourful descriptions of Constantinople and the often surprising behaviour of the Ottoman court.

Gathorne-Hardy enriches his book with much cultural background

DIANA DARKE, THE TIMES LITERARY SUPLEMENT

The author’s research has been thorough, but his learning is as lightly worn as his eye for detail or a telling anecdote is keen. He writes with an easy and agreeable elegance; in short, his book is a delight. A lesser writer would have made it two or three times as long.
