Bought 10 Aug 2006 – Amazon

Two books I was really looking forward to reading about the author’s walk round the South West coast and rowing trip up the Thames, with dog Boogie. While these were enjoyable, I found they were a bit silly, especialy the second book, which thrived on a rather annoying repetition of patterns which really could not have happened. He’s a good writer and describes things well, and of course there’s a place for humour in travel books – but this was a bit disappointing.

I’m going to register this on BookCrossing as I don’t think I’ll be re-reading it. It’s a shame when I buy books then have to BookCross them, but then thank goodness I have a route for passing them on rather than them just clogging up my bookshelves!
