Provence A - Z
Provence A - Z
Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars To read when in Provence..., 29 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Provence A - Z (Kindle Edition)
I loved this, mind you, we were in Province when I read it, which I'm sure helped! This is not a guide but a collection of thoughts and it really helped me get in the mood for a holiday. Mr Mayle's easy style makes for a relaxed read. The opinions are just that, opinions... so don't expect total accuracy or fill unbiased information. A great addition to the sun, wine and food of Presence.

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a disapointment!, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The guide used to be so good. It led us through many successful holiday on France. We have not been camping in France for a few years so bought a new edition. What a waste of money! There is now so little information about the sites that the book is next to useless. We found ourselves using the internet, which we could have done without spending the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read the author's preface..., 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author's preface is very honest in saying that there is very little actual maths to follow in the book. He says this might be frustrating... and it is! Having said that, it does do what the author sets out to do, which is to show some of the fascinating facts and 'tricks' which are sadly left out of maths education. If it gets read by 'mathsphobes', which I doubt, it should help a little. I'm giving a generous 4 stars because the book does just what the author set out to do.

2.0 out of 5 stars not for us, 27 Mar 2014

Not really what we were looking for. Not much off the beaten track in this. Rough guide would be better but it is a bit out of date at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat cover - fast delivery., 9 Mar 2014
Simple slip cover that offers great protection for my Kindle Paperwhite. Tight fit keeps it secure in the cover and the smooth fabric means that it slips easily into my pocket or bag. My wife was so impressed she immediately decided to order one for herself.

I greatly enjoyed Format's last theorem so was eager to read more by the same author. This was almost as good -I might even watch the Simpsons now!!

This book was just what we were needing. We wanted to make a tour in the Caribbean and this was the perfect way to start. Just enough info to help with this initial planning. We had visited Hawaii so knew that the author/s had similar taste to us. Now we can move on to some more detailed planning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok - just, 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I should have read the other reviews before buying this! On the positive side, the book is easy to read and does give some insight into cruising. Just like others, however, I found the negativity irritating. To be fair, the book is dated and a lot has changed in the last 20 years since this journey was undertaken, but.....my advice to the author would be, if you don't like other people, don't write about them! It also worries me that this gives sailing a bad press. We sail off the French coast and although there is the odd time when we meet the difficulties described, mainly it is a real pleasure and we meet lovely people. Please don't let this put you off!

My fault - I should have looked more carefully, but the information in this book is very sketchy and not that helpful in planning a visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle read, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this! A really gentle read - but I did learn a little about French politics of the time. Now I've read it in English, I would have liked to brush up my French by reading it in the original - sadly this is not available on Kindle yet.
