The Great Tapestry of Scotland
The Great Tapestry of Scotland
by Alistair Moffat
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 20.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book but go and see the real thing., 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good colour reproduction but does not give the scale and scope of the real thing.
Future centuries will see this on a par with the Bayeaux.

Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.68

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are thinking of this read the series in sequence, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As of January 2014 this is the most recent in the series six or seven in all.

As narratives go it is typically Gallic in its understated-ness. The stories are interesting and the characters develop through the series.

If you like food you'll enjoy the meal descriptions from time to time.

1.0 out of 5 stars A good book at bedtime!!!, 18 Feb 2014
Listening to the unabridged audio version of this book.
This must be the most boring book we have ever listened to.
Believe the one star reviews which indicate lack of any real plot, lack of characterisation, lack of suspense....

We downloaded it on the basis of the next three in the series are read by our favourite narrator Sean Barrett - but even he, I suspect, would not improve what is a poorly written book. We won't be listening to them though.

The narration in this version equals the plot for lack of sparkle and difficulty in differentiating the characters.
I even manage, as it's sending me off to sleep, to confuse the two lesbian girls.

When it came to the end of the first download section I thought we had finished but was disheartened to realise there were another five hours to go!

For those who have enjoyed Jo Nesbo or Craig Russell or Henning Mankell this is definitely not for you.

If you want something Italian have a go at Gianrico Carofiglio instead.
