He successfully created the image of the basques as a strange curiosity rather than framing them within the appropriate historical context that they deserve.
Interwoven with this is a detailed knowledge of the place and the characters that have made the place what it is today. It is thus mostly not too heavy and has many interesting little sub-stories and character profiles. Having said this, towards the middle of the book you'll need to take the odd break to let your brain recover from the information overload of unbelievable political intricacies during and since the Franco period.
If you want a light read to take on holiday, this probably isn't it. It's what I bought it for (actually a holiday to the Basque country - also highly recommended!). Realistically, this is a tomb of information that will take quite a while to read and digest. So if you're buying it to research a potential holiday there, make sure you get it well in advance!
Hope this review's been of use to you.
