3.0 out of 5 stars Small gems, in a large package, 9 April 2012
This review is from: Never Mind the Quantocks: Stuart Maconie's Favourite Country Walks (Paperback)
Picked this up on the spur of the moment to take on a trip to the Peak Distruct, expecting a kind of hill walking Cider With Roadies. But in fact it's a collection of short columns Maconie wrote for Country Walking magazine. Ruminations on various aspects of walking. Individually they are fine, but reading them back to back you start to long for something a bit more substantive.

What it is definitely not is "Stuart Maconie's Favourite Country Walks", it's a book for the bedside or the loo, not to guide your next venture into the hills.

Maconie writes well, and there is much pleasure to be had from these short pieces. But the large format paperback - and price for a book in which every 3rd page is a title page - feels like pushing it a bit. 1 star deducted for feeling a trifle ripped off.
