I'm about 2/3 through 'Boogie Up The River' and love it just as I did listening to Timothy Spall in the radio adaptation. As I read it, I'm almost listening to his voice which is another reason to recommend this book. Well done Mark Wallington for providing us with a travelogue with laughs!

I first read this in Africa in 1994 and loved it. I decided to buy it and read it again and I was not disappointed. It's a fun book as well as interesting. Highly recommended if you like wry humour,and its observations on all humankind (and dogkind) are exceptional.

Have read it before, but it's just as fresh on rereading it. Love the dog: almost more human than a human. Can also recommend "Pennine Walkies" by the same author, even though it's a different Boogie. Brilliant name for a dog, too. Fits perfectly.

This is a lovely book and I enjoyed every word. It kept me reading late into the night!! Boogie is a real character and accompanies Mark Wallington on all his interesting travels. He even goes on the boat with him up the River Thames to the source.

Loved every minute of both books. I am planning a walk around the SWCP, and this was just what I needed. Boogie Up The River was also fabulous. Lent to book to my Son's partner. She is enjoying it too. Highly recommended.

Turn over each page to find out more about the stunning south west coast and Mark and Boogie's adventure around it. This book is a great comedy, factual and travel book, definitely worth a read!

Enjoyed this book, read it whilst on holiday in Cornwall, almost made me want to walk the coast path! The second part of the book set on the Thames is not quite so good, but still amusing

Loved the first book, '500 Mile Walkies' so thought I would try this - it didn't disappoint. Mark combines his love and insight for dogs into a travelogue. Great fun.

Delivered day after order. Book in very good condition. Boogie is a maniac mongrel who accompanies his hapless owner on journeys. A very funny travelogue.

Bought it for a friend who recently acquired his first dog and enjoys walking with her. Hopefully he'll take heed of some of the information within ....
