Genre: non-fiction, travel writing
Rating: C
Conclusion:
Patrick Barkham's calm flow of writing is an acquired taste
...like olives.
I love the salty jolt of olives
but this book was soporific like a warm glass of milk.
I did discover islands surrounding the British Isles
...a few were interesting (Isle of Man) ..but most of the islands were boring.
I'll give it 3 stars because is an informative book
shortlisted for Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2018.
I won't be reading any more Barkham's books.....unfortunately.
