Nellie Bly is exactly the kind of mighty woman that we all love. When she proposes her idea to her publishers she is hastily met with the rebuke that, if the trip were at all possible it would require a man to undertake it. To paraphrase her reply, she said:

Seitseteist peatükki reisikirjeldusi on suurepärased. Lihtsalt väga huvitav on kogu aeg.

Kui mina sellest raamatust lavastuse peaksin tegema, siis oleks naiseks olemine kõrvaline teema. Maailm läbi naise silmade näib siin tavaline, pinnuks silmas on hoopis kolonialistlik mõtteviis, 1890ndate kõige ta

Mida küll arvasid preili Bly raamatust inimesed, keda ta reisil kohtas ja oma päevikus kirjeldas? Olgu siis Kantoni kulid või tülikad kaaslased aurulaevalt või Jaapani muusikud?

I enjoyed this book for the most part. It is a good story and step back to a different era, if you can get past her somewhat bigoted, arrogant remarks about some of the cultures she happened upon. She did redeem herself a bit as a not too ugly American with her descriptions of the Japanese culture.
