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
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.
