Book Description

25 Dec 2009
"Reading on Location" is a country-by-country guide to the regions and cities made famous by both well-known and cult books. From the quintessential English city of Bath, featured in Jane Austen's "Persuasion" to the South India of Arundhati Roy's "The God of Small Things" and the Amazon of Mario Vargas Llosa's "La Casa Verde", this book is aimed at those who want to learn more about a potential destination, follow in the footsteps of a favourite character from a novel and get to know a destination through the eyes of a celebrated author. Reading a story or piece about a city can introduce a stranger to the heart of that location, just as visiting the area where a favourite novel is set can bring the words to life. Whether it's visiting a restaurant featured in American Psycho or experiencing an event such as the running with the bulls in Pamplona through the eyes of Ernest Hemingway, "Reading on Location" will allow readers and travellers to get the most from their trips.

It seems as if every country is mentioned and in the case of some countries there are books set in different regions or cities. Very interesting if you like to read a book set in a place before you visit. Contains both fiction and non-fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read 6 Feb 2014
By Beach Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are going to a place, why not check to see what literature or movies have been done there, or otherwise deal with the place, I read Taras Bulba nearly a year after going to the Ukraine, why? I guess I didn't have this book at the time. I also recommend a book called Novel Destinations
