Having just written a poor review for the Bradt Bosnia guide, this guide is quite a contrast and in my opinion excellent. Bradt gives their authors more freedom than other guides which means each book might not be to everyone's tastes or expectations from the series. Annalisa Rellie to me struck the perfect balance between showing a passion for the country (something often lacking in factual RG/LP guides) yet providing comprehensive and concise information. I did think that there was detailed information about the beaches, although I prefer hiking and found the descriptions of Durmitor and areas around Skadar lake to be very useful and informative. Montenegro is a very small country and we actually walked a large chunk of the coast in a couple of hours one afternoon. I also liked the inserted stories and reader feedback along the way, and Rellie's dose wit without being arrogant like I somtimes find LP authors (there's apparently a humouress twist on the tourist board slogan: "Visit Monetenegro - your car is already here!"). I used public transport and did find the practical information very helpful, although Bradt guides are always going to be phyisically shorter than a RG. I like the independence that Bradt guides give you by providing information on lots of places rather than just hand holding with fine detail on only a few places. And I also simply enjoyed the style of writing of Rellie - very enjoyable.

This guide is a good general read about the country. However the style of writing and the layout make it difficult to get a clear, precise overview for someone spending a week there. Phrases like "where in April cream-and-gold water lilies are in Monet-like profusion, the whiskered term anchors her nest daintily on a floating lead and the frog hawks...." are a good example of this. In itself, it is a well-written book if you're studying English. But for a travel guide, I personally prefer clarity. That said, it is perhaps the most up to date of all the available guides, so a bit of a Wikipedia/Trip Advisor read + her flowery descriptions could work well.

The maps aren't all that great. We got AWFULLY lost in Niksic. According to the map we 'should' have parked in exactly the same place as we did on our way up to Zabljak, but clearly didn't and ended up wondering around in the dry heat having an argument on the neccesity of getting lunch and needing the loo. The book doesn't mention a bustling central street with outdoor cafes (OK, yes, mostly pizza and ice-cream, but still...) that we very fortunately stumbled across. I wish I could tell you where it was, but based on the map, I couldn't put the two together. That said, the maps are not terrible - generally you can get around, we used it in Cetinje and Podgorica without much problem (but didn't spend all that long there). If you have a smartphone, it's probably worth downloading a map - especially if you're driving round Montenegro and can't be bothered to pay for a satnav or the cost of downloading maps for satnavs.

She covers a lot of the country, even the tiny towns with about 3 houses along the main road get a half-page, but I would have liked a lot more detail on the main towns/cities.

This book is probably the poorest one in Bradt's unique series of guides covering the relatively little-known countries of the Balkan region. While most other Bradt guides successfully combine insightful background info and coverage of sights with providing the useful and necessary practical travel information, this one fails on the latter front miserably.

Coverage of accomodation option was often poor, especially lacking the budget options - and for some towns listing no places to stay at all! Even worse is the complete lack of information on public transport. The author very obviously toured the country by car and couldn't be bothered to check out the existence and fares of buses and trains that are used to get around by most independant travellers!

While coverage of sights was mostly OK, it also proved pretty bad about, of all places, the nation's capital, Podgorica!

Without exception all those people whom I personally met using this guide were quite unhappy with it.

One can only hope that the publisher will eventually take note and either get a new author to rewrite the book, or provide some strong guidelines to the current author on what practical details are needed to bring this book in line with the quality of Bradt guides to the neighbouring countries: the ones covering Albania, Serbia and Hungary are all very good and could serve as a model.

Until that happens, you have a choice of buying this book just to plan WHERE you want to go (but not HOW!), or simply wait till you reach Montenegro and visit the tourist offices there that will provide you with just as many useful ideas on places to visit, and more heplful info on transport and accomodation!

Annalisa Rellie clearly loves her subject, and she has done it justice. Montenegro is a fascinating place, and this guide is the only one which is up to date and explains the best places to go, the culture, and the history and background. She writes with wit and understanding. Go to Montneegro soon, while it's still a secret (and much more exciting the the over-hyped Croatia) but don't go without the Bradt Guide to Montenegro.
