This eBook offering is an excerpt of Lonely Planet's latest France guide book and includes:
  • Languedoc-Roussillon chapters

This guide includes up-to-date reviews of the best places to stay, eat, sights, cultural information, maps, transport tips and a few best kept secrets - all the essentials to get to the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you have an old Kindle 17 May 2014

I'm not sure what I expected but I'm afraid it was a bit of a disappointment. I used the Kindle app on my iPad to look at it initially. Basic information is OK but I'm not impressed with the indexing. I would have hoped that the main index would be broken down into smaller indexes. For example the "Bas-Languedoc" entry simply links to the beginning of the chapter with no further breakdown. I would have liked entries for each of the towns covered but you have to page through to see what's there. A map at the beginning of each section would be useful although the links to offline maps work well (why on earth isn't there a link to the relevant map at the beginning of each section?

A warning if you have an old Kindle (like me). It's virtually unusable. Navigation is impossibly difficult without a touch screen and the option to zoom in and out (so maps cannot be enlarged and are unreadable).

In the end, nothing beats a proper book for something like this! Useful if you really don't have the space to carry a real guide book and the only reason it didn't get one star is that what information that is there is good but not user friendly.

Doesn't work as an e-book because of the maps. Not enough info on small towns.
