An enjoyable read
on 22 October 2015
This is a great book, and my sole complaint is that it only covers islands of under 300 acres. So places such as Tresco (about 730 acres) are omitted and Lundy at over 1000 acres is well off the radar. However, there were so many islands that I would never have found out about, let alone been able to visit, that I thank Mr Wills for doing all the leg-work and producing a fascinating book to read. At times I thought he had a tendency to waffle on unnecessarily, but then there were times where his prose made me laugh out loud and whets the appetite to travel to these places. The photos also give you a good sense of the feel of some of these tiny parcels of land.
The book is full of interesting facts about each island, together with much needed useful information on how to visit each place.
Mr Wills, if you update this book or decide to widen the criteria to include islands larger than 300 acres, can I come and carry your bags?
