5.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading, 9 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating book on the history of pilgrimages and life in the Middle Ages. Beautifully written , very fluid and easy and with lots of amusing anecdotes. It's made me smile quite a few times. Definitely the best book to read on the subject. I'm glad I bought it.

I loved this book. Harry Bucknall writes with humour as well as an eye for detail. I'm interested in walk the away myself and so was delighted to find. My worry now is he made it such a good walk the thousands from The Camino will flood the road - it's that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really like it!, 3 Feb. 2014

The rug arrived in really good time, exactly when I was told it would and I unwrapped it, lay it down and it's fantastic. No curling up, no corners raised to trip over. I'm really impressed at the quality. I think I may get more from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pulling together of facts, 4 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We learn history in episodes which is sometimes quite confusing. What was going on in Europe when China was at the height of its early civilisations...... This book gives us the whole history of the world in chronological order. Easy to read and informative, I would recommend it for anyone interested in our past.

A story from an age ago, thank goodness but I read it as I travelled around Laos and it gave me a perspective, perhaps one sided but interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great, 27 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's always with trepidation that I buy something like this sight unseen but this has more than exceeded my hopes. The quality of the colour printing is brilliant for a small printer and b/w and documents is completely fine. It's also incredibly easy to set up and being so small it's not in the way as so many printers are. I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant read, 27 Feb. 2012
Considering the subject it's a really easy read and packed with information without overloading the reader. Of the books I've recently read on the Eastern Front of the First World War this is easily the best one
