Review

An appetising, adventurous ramble around the country that's a book for any traveller, or simply an entertaining armchair companion―The Good Book Guide 2013

Her engaging county-by-county ramble is seasoned with memories, snatches of poetry and salty opinion... The book's idiosyncratic historical detours are reminiscent of 1066 and All Thati --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I am enjoying reading Clarissa's take on England. As usual she entertains us with her wit and humor. This book will mean more to people living in England than to frequent visitors. I have been to many of the areas in this book and I plan on using it as a travel guide for future trips to England.

This book is fascinating. Clarissa was so knowledgeable. I am glad she took this opportunity to share her knowledge and love of country with us. As I read this book, I can almost hear her voice. That feels all the more special now she is gone. I learned of her death at just about the same time as I received this book. A rare lady - she is missed already.

I have always enjoyed the Two Fat Ladies tv shows and Clarissa's books are enjoyable as well. She does have a few conservative biases but her descriptions of people, the countryside and food provide lots of good reading.
