I generally love travel books. Especially when the author was travelling around England, but I ended sort of disappointed and puzzled.

It wasn't that he didn't write elequently or that the subject wasn't an interesting one. I felt a bit depressed and bored to be quite honest, yet with a camper van myself and lots of travel throughout the UK I have never been depressed or bored with our coast before. I guess his style may be an acquired taste and perhaps he's a bit depressed himself (?) but I wouldn't recommend this book or bother with another by the same author.

Living in St Ives in Cornwall he could have made that little section so much more interesting. The Barbara Hepworth Garden he wrote about is hardly one of the local's highlights! So maybe the other sections weren't so well chosen either?

Anyway, don't expect a Bill Bryson!

Bought this a fair while ago now but when it came I could not put it down. Very interesting and makes you want to go and see some of these places yourself. Only wish I was younger and fitter

There is nothing quite like the anticipation of a good, well written book.
This is not one!
The author comes across as a depressed, self important bore who tries too hard to describe every last thing he experiences in a manner designed to make him sound like a 21st century poet. It is self indulgent cr*p!!!
Mr Fogarty..'lighten up' and open your eyes to that fantastic country called England. A world does exist beyond the nonsense that is London!!
Potential purchasers of this book. Please Don't. It is rubbish..pure and simple

I bought this book because I have always wanted to journey around the coast in a camper van. Perhaps the book has done what it intended because it has put me right off. It is so depressing. How did the author manage to find so many disaffected and miserable people to meet. I also bought a copy for my sister but I don't think I will send it to her. It wouldn't make a very uplifting present. I would have liked a bit more indication of the content before I bought it.

Go around the coast of Britain from your armchair. I like the style and it is so informative. Interesting interviews with people met on the way. I didn't want the journey to end.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to help me plan a road trip to the UK and, interesting as it is, it didn't help me very much. It's more of a novel, full of personal impressions and narrative, but I found it brings very little information of the kind I needed (suggested routes, must-see places, off-the-beaten track hints etc). Again, not a bad book - just not what I needed.
