4.0 out of 5 stars Plus ca change..... 13 Feb 2014
By C P
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fielding was laying ghosts for himself by returning to Crete. He writes well though sometimes obscurely, and without the panache of Leigh Fermor. Fascinating how some of the local/regional characteristics still prevail, 60 years on. Having always thought that Loutro was a bit claustrophobic, I shall look at it in a new way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strongly recommended, especially to Cretans 24 Dec 2013
By Yiannis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fielding blends historical knowledge with his exploration in hard-to-reach places. This book is a must read for Cretans as it allows us to perform a journey in time; the time that our grandfathers were of our age.
