PLease chuck away this book!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chucking It All (Maverick Lifestyles) (Paperback)
I bought it on the merit that as an "incomer" to Orkney Islands, I would find many common points with the author. On the contrary, and I'm not saying that everything is so great in this "windswept Scottish island", I can't find myself disagreeing more with mr Scratchmann. He exaggerates all the wrong situations; he doesn't try to understand the completly different style of living, his use of language, images, similies etc is absolutely terrible. Sad as it is, I'm unfortunately guilty of putting the money into his pocket because of buying this book, which I sincerely regret!
