I am very interested in the subject of this book and looked forward to reading it with relish. I was a bit disappointed though as I found it quite hard going. I'm not sure I like Iain Sinclair's style of writing; the very short sentences and the obscure references, which I found hard to understand. Perhaps I am not intelligent enough for this book. The parts I really enjoyed were the ones, which other reviewers didn't appreciate; the family history references. I am researching the same Rose family tree so I was very pleased to learn any fact I could about this family. I live in Peterborough so I lapped up any mention of local villages, although I didn't like the author's obvious disdain for Peterborough itself.
