3.0 out of 5 stars Patchy, 25 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pompeii (Paperback)
Having visited Pompeii and read quite a few books on the subject I didn't really enjoy this book very much. There were certain insights into Roman aqueducts and as to the mental thought processes of those confronted with the situation as well as some of the physical manifestations of the eruption towards the end but I found it generally rather turgid. Certainly not the page turner other reviewers have said. Perhaps I just prefer the factual books

enjoying the insights in the book, following my recent visit to Pompeii. I like her TV programmes and the associated books which have a no nonsense approach

Not yet put them up, but for the price and apparent quality they appear to be excellent value, compared with other halogen cable sets, I bought 6 sets for the price of 1 of the expensive sets Also the shipping costs and they are heavy ! the postage was the same base cost of £11+ for all the sets together

Bought good used copy as part of my gathering of info on Pompeii and Herculaneum before my visit this week. Spiral bound book with postcard sized images of major street and building views with an overlay to show what they would have looked like, interspersed with images and info on wall paintings etc A good all rounder

5.0 out of 5 stars Good all rounder for on site info, 19 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got a good used copy - am about to visit Pompeii and as reviews said guide books are scarce on site and I like to read in advance this seemed like a good option to take. Plenty of photos of main sights with a couple of paragraphs about each so a good companion Would recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars The complete Pompeii, 18 April 2016

This review is from: The Complete Pompeii (Paperback)
I am about to visit Pompeii and I wanted a book to give me plenty of background reading - and this is it ! Lots of detail but set out in a way you can dip in and out, plenty of information about the site, artefacts, background and people. A must have book - my only regret is that it is so full of info it is probably a bit too heavy for my carry on bag!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have the original Manwatching and wanted to see the updated version - rather thick for a paperback would have been better a larger format as the original but looking forward to reading all over again - some of the photos have clearly been re used from the 70s !
