I am reading this book in slow easy chunks and finding it fascinating. The way the author combines commentaries on photographs with meditations of life in general makes for a much better read about photography than simply analysing techniques and f numbers. My only issue, as with other reviewers, is the poor reproduction of photos. Even more annoying - consider we are meant to share the contemplation of each picture - is that some photos are not even there. My advice - have your iPad open and google pictures as they get a mention and then have each before you as read Geoff Dyer's text. He is one of my favourite writers and I am looking forward to White Sands.
