2.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointing, 7 Aug 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Brittany & Normandy (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
What do you want from a guidebook?
Something that makes planning your trip easier. Provides reliable and accessible information. Is well indexed. Handy size and easy to carry. Allows you to get the most out of you visits.
It should contain the sort of information you would want to pass onto a friend who was planning to do the same trip as you after you come back.....
I found this book difficult to use. The maps are disconnected from the content. The paper used is thick with lots of colour pictures making it heavy (we were cycling). There are very few listings of hotels and restaurants. The descriptions of sites to visit are very briefly described.
Having used Lonely Planet guides elsewhere I was disappointed. This one seems to have gone for pictures over content and combined two areas you are unlikely to visit on the same trip.
I didn't get the sense that my friend was giving me useful inside information after his trip....
