5.0 out of 5 stars They just get better, 22 April 2014

These books just carry on getting better, taking Charlie out of the picture in the middle really threw me and as usual I have more questions than answers. Roll on the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Readable travels, brilliant access to a historical perspective, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit to not reading the whole of the introductory text but what I read was useful. I then skipped to Humboldt's narrative and was pleased with how enjoyable it was to read and felt familiar with his way of discovering new places despite the centuries of time in between. Very much a travel story describing the natural environment, people and places but light on his more scientific findings. I sat with large maps of both Tenerife and Venezuela by my side which helped in understanding the scale of exploration on foot, with mules and in canoes. Would definitely recommend reading this for fireside pleasure and certainly if lucky enough to visit these places.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dostoyevski, The Idiot, Kindle Elrond: Could do better, 28 Jun. 2011
This classic has, in this version, been treated to an oversimplified translation losing some of the period character and nuance from the writing. An unfortunate lack of editorial effort gives frequent The Idiot (Elrond Approved Kindle Classics)typo errors. Choose a better version to get the best from this novel.
