excess to requirements,
This review is from: Venice (Paperback)
What a pity Peter Ackroyd doesn't have anything interesting or original to say about Venice. This book comprises a series of seemingly unrelated and unsubstantiated assertions, without the benefit of any argument or evidence. I, too, could make a lot of sweeping generalisations about Venice, but why would I? And who would believe me? I don't believe Peter Ackroyd and I don't know why any publisher felt that there was a need for this book.
