Very negative book
on 30 December 2011
From the minute you start this book the author has nothing but negative comments about the people of Orkney .I think he only went to ridicule the Orcadians and their way of life .
I read up to half of the book in the hope that it was going to get better and the author would start writing something positive or say something nice about Orkney but was left dissapointed .
Why do people leave big cities to go and live in small islands to escape from modern city life then moan that they can't get 24hr shops,transport etc and want to change everything .
I have been to Orkney on holiday and I found the Orcadians very warm friendly people .
I think this book says more about the author than the people of Orkney.
