Product Description

About the Author

Steve Roach is a UK based author working in the travel writing and fiction genres. Steve's travel books are light-hearted and fun, covering such diverse journeys as a 3 month road trip around North America, a grand tour of Europe in a VW Campervan, and a month long cycling trip through France from Cherbourg to Perpignan. A keen cyclist, Steve has also just started producing books detailing his favourite UK rides. Steve's fiction is an altogether different prospect, aiming to take the reader to some very dark places. Frequently bordering on horror, these novellas and short stories involve intense research to really bring the subject matter to life. Finally, Steve also writes children's books, sometimes in collaboration with artist Simon Schild. Website: www.kindlenonfiction.co.uk

Overall I think this is a nice little travelogue. However, I do think that it has missed it's opportunity to become a valuable, approaching invaluable, asset to casual cyclists, ramblers and walkers. Seeing that is #1 and that hopefully a series is planned I offer these suggestions as a way of enhancing the readers use of these books which - at the moment - have no competition on the Kindle.

1 - Canal Maps are pretty boring linear depiction's of the route to be taken and the obstacles to be encountered. Boring, but fantastically functional and a brilliant way of knowing exactly how far one can expect to travel per day on a barge.

I think that a similar layout as a frontis for each guide would totally "sell" the book to those who wanted to know the terrain. Detailed separate line drawing maps for significant diversions would be glorious.

Suggest wandering into a bookshop and browsing a few of the Canal maps to see what I mean :)

2 - Travelogue or Travel Guide? As a travelogue, even with the numerous photographs, its a pretty limited experience. There are probably (artificial) ways of sexing up the tale, but I just don't see readers wanting to buy into a series of short personal momentos.

Giving links to local sites, sights, museums, remarkable architecture, whatever even throwing in links to zip off to relevant web sites would make the book much more useful, interesting, exciting and exploit the unique abilities of the Kindle.

3 - Format - I am guessing the format has been dictated by the inclusion of the photographs. The downside is that it both locks the size of text and disables Talk To Me. Perhaps these issues are irrelevant to normal readers.

I was looking for a guide to cycling this route but this book is more like a description of the route.

While this is an interesting and factually correct book the layout is plain weird. Each page the text is in two boxes, both different sizes and neither fills the page unless expanded, then the text looks bad. Shame as otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
