Fictionreader – 5 stars
Quirky and entertaining journey around the little known towns and villages of England. Roz Morris takes us to various Landmark Trust cottages (including one with stairs to nowhere and another with regal neighbours), to a Flash Mob audition in a London station, and to remote towers on the English coast. All of this is observed with wry humour, a precision of detail, and beautiful writing. Above all it gives a sense of what it is to travel in England – the hopeless bus services, the endless cups of tea, the footpaths that aren’t quite functional, the wet weather and the need to remove wellington boots at the door. If you can’t get out this weekend, pick up the book – you can do it from your armchair.
