Product Description

Review

An appetising, adventurous ramble around the country that's a book for any traveller, or simply an entertaining armchair companion (The Good Book Guide 2013)

Her engaging county-by-county ramble is seasoned with memories, snatches of poetry and salty opinion... The book's idiosyncratic historical detours are reminiscent of 1066 and All That (i)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hurrah! for Clarissa 12 Nov 2012
By chronos
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Once again one of my favourite writers and cooks has written a great book. A lovely gallop through England providing a potted history of each county with some good humour and the odd personal story thrown in. Cannot wait to see if Clarissa does London and oh what joy it would be if she turned her sights on Scotland. Buy the book. Be entertained. Laugh and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars if not strictly a review why bother! 23 Sep 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Just be thankful you can gallop off the ferry into Hampshire from the Isle of Wight-one day you might need to especially if you try going to festivals! Five stars just to put the record straight and I like the cut of Clarissa's jib

4.0 out of 5 stars Clarissa's England 9 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book a fascinating read. I am a fan of Clarissa, I enjoy her style of writing and her humor. The history of the counties is most interesting, especially for a regular visitor to England with a fascination for all the areas. She does not profess to be an historian and so in writing the book she selects various pieces of interest which broaden the reader's knowledge an interest. I give the book a salute.

2.0 out of 5 stars Be Warned! 10 Aug 2014
By Adam
Format:Paperback
I picked up this book expecting it to be a travel book as the sub-title suggests: 'A Gamely Gallop Through the English Counties' ; it is not. What it is is a book packed full of mainly insignificant facts that are not explained well. It is certainly not a travel companion and you would be much better off looking these things up online instead of buying this book.
