"This book is perfect for anyone who needs to break away to a new world of excitement" (The Mail on Sunday)
Top Customer Reviews
Like all books of this nature, the format and presentation can make or break them, and it is in this case that this book falls down. Whilst it's beautiful to look through, there aren't pictures for most of the entries, which is frustrating if the purpose of the book is to leaf through and dream about going - there's probably dozens of walking suggestions in here, and with no pictures to distinguish them they easily become forgettable entries. Furthermore, the lack of page numbering is a strange decision. All the experiences are numbered, and so the index has a reference to this, but when pages have multiple entries, it can take a while to skim through to the right page (finding entry 516 might involve opening the book roughly halfway, then flicking back a bit, forwards a bit...). Also, whilst the book is split into clear geographical sections, within this they are mixed up; entries on Italy, for example, are scattered through the 'Southeast Europe' section, along with such places as Serbia, Turkey and Bosnia.
The question is, then, what sets Rough Guide's offering apart from the many others available?Read more ›
The slightly laconic writing style nevertheless gives a sense of genuine pleasure in encountering new cultures and places, and supported by the lush photography fills the open reader with a wanderlust that demands to be satisfied.
well worth a look!
I would comment on the content of the book if only I had been able to decipher it. As it is, life is too short to bother. I will have the experiences myself, instead.
