This review is from: Nightwalk: A journey to the heart of nature (Hardcover)
This is not a long book. In fact it is an easy read at one sitting and indeed once started is not so easy to put down. It reminds me a little of books by Henry Williamson....now rather dated in style but nevertheless educational about the wonders of nature in Britain and south west England in particular. But back to this book; I found it gently reassuring that simple pleasures are the ones that are the most memorable and enjoyable. No expense, no electricity, no gadgets, no fancy clothing...just being at one with oneself and with the joys around us.
I'm not a night walker and would probably not particularly enjoy being out all night but I can enjoy the infectious love that the author has of the countryside at night. He has a way of making the reader see and feel what he sees and feels and brings the love of nature into the reader.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to those who enjoy solitude, nature, nightime and the rising of the sun....and of course a good read.
