All three stars are for Jim the whippet although even he comes across as slightly depressed at times!

Like many readers of this book I really struggled with the style of writing and in the end I just did not find this an enjoyable read. Before picking up Carcassone I was a bit worried by the negative reviews which focused on the writing style but having leapt gazelle-like over the very first place where ordinarily there should have been quote marks I gambolled on without further worry. His references to places, people, poetry, art and movies and music sent me to look up things multiple times.

Learning about the remnants of physical damage and psychological pain from WWII are something I had not give much thought to.To be fair, the English have a different viewpoint than regular people, and this book was intended to be halfway about their dog, a whippet, which was taken on the journey - I had no interest in the dog after about the first 2 pages. The publisher also needs a review on how they choose books if this is the best they can come up with.

However, R L Stephenson in his "Inland Voyage" or Jerome K Jerome in his "Three men in a Boat" didn't supply maps either, and both are classics. There were many frightening moments, when they donned life jackets, clutched passports and the CD of Terry’s book and said goodbye to Jim.the Phyllis May was an airship passing through the clouds, forbidden to land, though her captain longed for the streams and woods below. YOU CLOSE the gate behind you and empty the water out at the other end and you sink down, and then you open the gates in front of you and sail away. I left the book for about two months and when I came back to it, I found it was much easier to read, like a language I'd gotten fluent at. wasted pages trying to colorize a not very interesting trip - one in which the authors didn't seem to enjoy. Having read LTC Rolt, Steve Haywood and Paul Gogarty on narrowboating - all of them with their own merits - I have to admit that Terry Darlington's offering is the only one that made me laugh out loud.

A classic example of someone with too much time on their hands that think they have a talent for writing to supplement their pension - can only assume Mr Darlington either used some of that pension to fund this book or he is related to the publisher. Jim looked out of his kennel, his eyes wide-He begged me Your Honour, Steal my bone; he went down on his hands and knees.

In the morning the secretary could not remember what had been decided, or indeed where he was, so to be on the safe side he chose the narrowest gauge mentioned in his notes, which was seven feet. This sounds like bar-room tall story, exaggeration, but then a second time round it changes to them and their boat being attacked by fighter-bombers - are the tall stories getting taller?
