Review

Diamond in the rough, 7 Sep 2008 By J Todd (London England) - Amazon Reader Review Charles Davis clearly knows Brittany well and in Bumping About Brittany he's come up with a beguiling mix of anecdote, history, and a liberal dose of what reads like outright fantasy. It's all very enjoyable, though, and on the whole very well written. I'm not sure all the excursions he describes would bear repeating, but he packs a lot of information in, and from what I know of the region, these essays should illuminate any trip to Brittany, even if you don't visit the places he describes. I reckon it would be best read before travelling as a kind of appetiser, though (speaking as someone who hasn't been to France for several years) it also works well as a trigger of happy memories. His humour is sharp, occasionally verging on the sardonic, but he never slips into that let's-laugh-at-the-funny-foreigners style of writing that mars so many English books about foreign places. Brittany miscellaneous, 24 Aug 2008 By P R Spooner (Barcelona Spain) - Amazon Reader Review What an odd book! I used this author's walking guide to Brittany when we were there this summer (see my reviews), so I was interested to see what this 'bumping about' was. I haven't really come across anything like it before, a mixture of travelogue, practical guidebook, and essay, but I must say, it works. The print's a bit small, the pictures, too, but it's an entertaining and informative read featuring the sort of obscure facts and diverting anecdotes that you would never come across as a casual visitor. Haven't, of course, had the occasion to try following in the author's footsteps, but there's enough tempting material to persuade me we really must go back again. Combined with the Walk! Brittany book, you've got enough material here for several complete holidays.
