Lonely Planet Peru (Travel Guide)
Lonely Planet Peru (Travel Guide)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview for planning your journey, 30 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like most Lonely Planet guides they provide a good overview of a country. Despite us having the latest 2013 guide, prices are often hugely different from reality. From experience on the ground this is not rapidly changing prices in Peru, rather Lonely Planet's ineptness in correctly editing the guides. We have found many prices between 1 and 2 years out of date. Disappointing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy for housesitting newbies!, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the perfect go-to guide for anyone who is new to housesitting and wants to start getting in to it. Written in a friendly, to the point but easy to read style, this guide takes you through all the steps necessary to secure your first housesit, or get your first housesitters. The detailed breakdown of all the housesitting websites out there was very useful, and I especially liked the example profiles, listings and application letters. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who has ever thought about housesitting but didn't know where to start!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real find, 11 Mar. 2013
Mastin weaves real characters and events with fictional ones in an almost cinematic style. It is highly evocative and wholly convincing in its depiction of post WWII London and the heroic origins of the NHS.
Mastin has a gift for scene setting, including those of domestic life, London nightlife and scenes with the central character John and his mentor Rambrant. There are moments of sad poignancy and an unexpected twist towards the end of the book, all delivered with lyric finesse.
A must read and especially relevant in light of the current predicament of the National Health Service.
