If you're going to claim a town such as Melrose, Mass. is one of the worst towns in America, then you should probably portray it in such a way that does not make me want to go there. The pictures of all the beautiful places in this town make me want to maybe stop by there for the scenery next time I'm in Boston. Not only that, but the text itself failed to to convince me that there was anything wrong with Melrose. How could you possibly place an otherwise educated town on the same list as a place like Markham, IL? Being a resident of Illinois, I know that Markham is a true pit, so why would the author ever even list nice towns such as Melrose or Butte? Even Modesto doesn't deserve such harsh treatment, it being wine country and all.
In response to the 5 star review, I'd have to wonder if the reviewer even has any idea of just what British satire is? To say that this comes close to being a good example of British satire is a complete insult to the said tradition.
