    I have had this one on my TBR shelf since I received it as part of a trade back in 2008 finally got around to reading it Well this was basically a Britisher s trip around England one summer to visit all the quirky festivals f tes he could find This included shinkicking contests WWII reenactments with English players portraying Nazi paratroopers the summer solstice at Stonehenge train, plane, and bus spotters participating in the making of a crop circle drunken nights in Blackpool etc I have had this one on my TBR shelf since I received it as part of a trade back in 2008 finally got around to reading it Well this was basically a Britisher s trip around England one summer to visit all the quirky festivals f tes he could find This included shinkicking contests WWII reenactments with English players portraying Nazi paratroopers the summer solstice at Stonehenge train, plane, and bus spotters participating in the making of a crop circle drunken nights in Blackpool etc I decided that this one was really written by a Brit for the British Throughout the book there were many references to obscure British celebrities and TV shows, British words that I had no clue to their meaning, and of course a British sense of humour British spelling I did find quite a bit of this rather amusing when taken in small doses one chapter a day was about all I could handle Overall, a rather bizarre travel memoir

    My 2006 bookcrossing journalOne summer, this guy, Iain Aitch, decides to sample all the madness of a british summer Interesting too because he doesn t drive so you get to discover how awful it can be trying to travel about in this country if you don t have a car There s chapters on trainspotters, toe wrestling, historical reenactments, Stonehenge and so forth.This is such a big subject really, so he definately doesn t cover everything that goes on in the UK during the summer, and it is mainly My 2006 bookcrossing journalOne summer, this guy, Iain Aitch, decides to sample all the madness of a british summer Interesting too because he doesn t drive so you get to discover how awful it can be trying to travel about in this country if you don t have a car There s chapters on trainspotters, toe wrestling, historical reenactments, Stonehenge and so forth.This is such a big subject really, so he definately doesn t cover everything that goes on in the UK during the summer, and it is mainly focusing on the south of England, so you don t even get to experience the madness of the North, or even get into Scotland.Still bit of a curiosity though

    To be enjoyed in small doses Dip in and out of this account of exploring England in the summer Admitting that he identifies with those who show effort instead of skill and pluck instead of grace, the author tags along as planespotters, trainspotters, historical re enactors or crop circle fabricators pursue their arcane hobbies Between restorative visits to the pub, he tours dismal village fetes and stays in equally dismal B Bs A cheerful cocktail of defamation and affection To be enjoyed in small doses Dip in and out of this account of exploring England in the summer Admitting that he identifies with those who show effort instead of skill and pluck instead of grace, the author tags along as planespotters, trainspotters, historical re enactors or crop circle fabricators pursue their arcane hobbies Between restorative visits to the pub, he tours dismal village fetes and stays in equally dismal BBs A cheerful cocktail of defamation and affection

    Not only is the content often quite boring, but the author writes under the assumption that his entire readership is English, born and bred It therefore makes the storyline and or humour occasionally difficult to follow as he references things that non English people don t understand That being said, there were a few moments where I did laugh out loud, but it wasn t enough to bring this book up to a likeable level.

    Mainly just read this as it was in my to read pile Although not a difficult or bad read, it just wasn t that interesting either There were parts where the author seemed sneering in his observations about people and that made for uncomfortable reading.
