Beautiful photographs, and a wonderful narrative from the author illustrating the reasons for basing key sites on these photo's/actual houses and places, together with occasional extracts from the book so the reader can be transported to the location and the fictional book prose simultaneously.
If you've never read the series (do!) but the book works wonderfully well as a standalone photo guide to the Hebrides.
It's just a wonderful footnote for the series - treat yourself in hardback as it will become very well read.
Having read all three books in the Lewis Trilogy (and been disappointed that there are no more) I enjoyed seeing the places mentioned in those books brought to life in the fabulous photographs. Even if you've never read the Fin McLeod books you will be entranced by the rugged, peaceful beauty of the spectacular scenery and landscapes that make up the islands of Lewis and Harris.
Peter May's love of the islands and their inhabitants is evident in his descriptions. Most of the characters in the Lewis Trilogy were based on real people and real events. I would love to see a film or TV series made of the Lewis Trilogy and shot on location in this lovely part of the world.
I recommend this book without hesitation.
If you haven't read the Lewis Trilogy, this is a beautiful photographic record of the Hebrides and cannot fail to please.
Buy it. No, I'm not on commission!
It is a very true saying that "the blood is strong"-and I will definitely be returning home-been a long time but feel the calling to return one more time!!
Wonderful book with fantastic pictures!!
Look forward to more from this great author!!
