Customer Review

on 25 December 2009
I didn't enjoy Mike Carden's first cycling book "The full English" so it must have been some sort of literary masochism that impelled me to buy and read his second book "A bit Scott-ish", about a similarly short and slow `long distance' bike ride: this time the length of Scotland. But in fact this book isn't half as bad as the first one. The inane conversations with the bike are still there - but fewer and shorter. The visits to churches are still there - but also mercifully fewer and shorter; probably because they were often closed. Consequently the necessary padding to supplement the thin material garnered from the actual ride is provided by a more interesting and diverse compendium of stories and factoids. If you liked the Full English you will probably like this book as well, but if you didn't like it there is still a chance you will like this one.
