Is funducation a word?,
This review is from: Ready, Steady, Dig! (The Rooks Ridge series) (Kindle Edition)This book is a great example of how to combine fun, information and satire into one package and make it thoroughly enjoyable to read. So much so that I immediately went and bought the next in the series.
The education was about archaeology, Roman times, and how TV programs sometimes get the balance wrong between making a good show and actually respecting what they are trying to showcase. Anyone who has watched Time Team will pick up on a lot of sly digs here.
The story is the great thing though, the characters, human and non-human, and the interaction between them all add up to an engaging and light-hearted fun story. The landscape is almost a character in it's own right as well and it came to life vividly and memorably.
All in all I was delighted to find this lovely book and it's sequel, and I am sorry that there aren't more of them in the series.
