An enjoyable and amusing nature based read
I found this a humorous and amusing read. Its insightful and a good sort of escapist, holiday read. His family, particularly his father, seem quite quirky and I enjoyed getting to know them via his writing. His father is particularly entertaining with the various, often curse filled outbursts noted IN CAPITAL LETTERS. He certainly seems both amusingly delightful and eccentric. I enjoyed reading the various anecdotes, getting to know various landscapes the author has enjoyed exploring, as well as learning about the nature within.
It was perhaps a bit longwinded, at over 380 pages long. I did feel a bit impatient to finish the book after a certain point but for the most point I quite enjoyed reading it, finding it both an insightful and entertaining read. I also liked the various (black and white) photos included. Not a bad read, one I'm happy to recommend to nature lovers.
