This review is from: Sea Room: An Island Life in the Hebrides (Paperback)
What a disappointment. The book rambles dreadfully. As soon as you find an interesting bit the author then goes off at a tangent and you lose the thread. I should stress that there are some good bits and some of the turns of phrase are poetic but, in the main, I found the book dull. I was glad I got it out of the library rather than bought it. Doesn't the pic on the new paperback version look fab, though? Pity the text of the 2001 hardback only has small black and white pics in it.
