I loved this book because it evoked in me such wonderful memories of my visit to Sydney. As a small girl i dreamt of visiting Sydney, and when i eventually got there, she didnt let me down. Reading this book took me right back to my dream ans i walked through its pages reliving the sights i saw. The book also made me feel close to my daughter who now lives in this wonderful antipodean land. I will read it again and again

The contents and the writing are wonderful. BUT:
The Kindle version has clearly been created by automatic Optical Character Recognition from the original printed pages.
And then it has been distributed WITHOUT BEING CHECKED AT ALL!
It is FULL of ridiculous errors, so much so that they detract from the excellence of the book.
I recommend that you buy and read the print version, and avoid the Kindle version!
I shall be contacting Ms Morris, and the publishers, about this, as I feel sure that they cannot have authorised such an appallingly bad product.

A good insight into the history of Sydney without being in any way boring. A very good easy read. Enjoyed.
