This book was recommended to me and I read it whilst travelling in Europe. The writer takes a walk in England along the east coast. Because of his immense knowledge he is able to weave a rich narrative of stories and characters, seemingly handpicked with an almost obsessive attention to detail, resulting in a utterly unique book.

It holds a cornucopia of information and ideas on a bizarre bazaar of anecdotes, buildings, characters and histories. Quirky, full of colour and detail, this is a delight to read, not quite from cover to cover, as some parts are bound to intrigue and captivate more than others. Overall, it`s an impressive accomplishment.

Extraordinary book that defies categorisation. Learned, humane and reflective. A meditation on human experience.

As I have seen other say, this is like nothing ever read before. It is tricky to read as Sebald is not too keen on punctuation but very worthwhile in persevering. It is wise, witty and you know that Sebald's heart is in the right place. And it describes beautifully the East Anglia I recognise.

I was irritated by the non use of inverted commas when the narrator is reporting other person's conversations using the 1st person, so that I did not know who was speaking - the narrator or that other person. The English prose was excellent - colourful and most readable.

A great book, especially if you know or live near the East Anglia coast.
