    • While this book somewhat lacks the writing style of Seven Years in Tibet, it manages to be heartbreaking.Harrer was no longer a young, bold, adventure seeking man when he returned to Tibet. Tibet was no longer a peaceful, profound place.Although not for the same reasons, I value this book as much as 7 years.To quote Harrer himself:Wherever I live, I shall feel homesick for Tibet. I often think I can still hear the cries of wild geese and cranes and the beating of their wings as they fly over Lha [...]


    • "Es blieb menschlichen Händen vorbehalten, gelenkt durch politischen Haß und Fanatismus, neunundneunzig Prozent aller Sakralbauten Tibets zu vernichten." (S.236)Mit diesem Satz ist eigentlich alles gesagt. Die wage Hoffnung, die Harrer nach seiner Reise 1982 noch für Tibets Zukunft empfand, sie ist nach weiteren 35 Jahren auch zerronnen.


    • I was interested to read about how Harrer experienced his return to Tibet after having built a life there and the Chinese having destroyed it all, interested to know the state of the country but it was less interesting than his first book: Seven years in Tibet. I think it is because there was no adventure involved anymore, less or pretty much no extraordinary things that happened, and sometimes it seemed more like a factual description of all things destroyed and changed to make sure his impress [...]


    • 30 de ani după "Șapte ani în Tibet", Harrer se întoarce în țara aflată sub ocupație chineză. Farmecul Tibetului e aproape dispărut, înlocuit cu fanatismul totalitar al lui Mao. "Întoarcerea în Tibet" nu conține aventurile incredibile din prima carte, ci este o comparație între Tibetul experimentat de Harrer înainte de invazia chineză și cel de după. Tibetul este și în ziua de astăzi sub ocupație chineză, iar Dalai Lama în exil în India.


    • A book really about how life is change. Having just watched the movie Seven Years in Tibet, I was eager to know what came next. Fascinating!


    • Return to Tibet has a copyright date of 1983, about thirty years after Harrer left that country, a period he wrote about his famous book, Seven Years in Tibet. It is now another 30 years since that was written, but even if he were still alive, it is unlikely the author would have anything very different to say now. The trends he deplores in this book continue to this day. Inevitably this is a backward looking book. It is worth reading, but it does not compare with the events of his original Tibe [...]


    • Of course this was a tragic read after meeting the young 14th Dalai Lama in situ at the Potala in the first book. It was shuddering to return to Lhasa under Chinese rule and the pointless destruction


    • I did not enjoy this book as much as Seven Years in Tibet, written by the same author, but probably because it was incredibly sad and depressing to read. It documents what happened to many of the Tibetans Heinrich Harrer knew after the Chinese invasion.


    • A somber book about Heinrich Harrer's return to Tibet, nearly 30 years after he left the country during the Chinese invasion. It brings to light the truth about what has happened to Tibet and what is still happening in Tibet. It is sad and truthful.


    • Harrer's writing lacked the finesse of Seven Years in Tibet, but the information was impactful none the less. Very important read about a continuing tragic state in Tibet.



    • Not the same enthusiasm in the author. The changes are all negative but he was one of the only guys able to draw comparisons. No-one else had previously been there.
