5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting and Informative, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crete - A Notebook (Kindle Edition)
I thought I knew Crete. Crete was the first place I visited in Greece and my first love. Later I honeymooned there. At one time I planned to live there. So I thought a 'Crete - A notebook' would whisk me down memory lane.
I was only a few sentences in when I was revisiting familiar places, feeling the heat on my skin, smelling the aromas, hearing the noises. I was back in Heraklion Airport where I learnt the word Leoforio - bus some twenty years ago.
But before long (and the same thing happened with Greek Island - A notebook by the same author.) I was taken to places I never even knew existed, had tricky politics clearly explained and Greek Mythology thrown in which made a delightful combination. History was also included to bring the present alive and I have learnt far more than I fear I will actually remember.
I paid particular attention to the Samaria Gorge note as this is a place I one day wish to finally walk. Bad planning, hot sun and lack of time robbing me of the chance so far. I was enchanted with his description. I love the way Clark writes, it is personal, it is human and deceptively simple. A book crafted so carefully you almost believe that it's a note book, were it not for the flow.
