3.0 out of 5 stars Not a book!, 31 Jan 2012
This review is from: A Week at the Airport: A Heathrow Diary (Paperback)
I do enjoy reading this but it should be emphasised that this is not a book: rather it is a pamphlet with numerous photos on each page. I was surprised how thin the pamphlet is and how brief each aspect he discusses. I would have thought he would have much more to write about. I agree he does write well. However this is no more than a very quick, light and entertaining hour's read. No more.

Fair enough, it was written in A WEEK! And at a desk at the airport... It's an essay, not a chunky volume.

Yes, but then it should be priced as such and not sold as a book. You say "written in a week". I realise that was the time he spent at the airport but surely he could have spent some time afterwards refining his work? Alexander McCall Smith would write 10 times as much in a week and in my opinion jusst as worthy in terms of quality!
