Reviews by James Lewis

The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with Samuel Johnson

by James Boswell

Fascinating read. Primitive travel history (1773) in a remote part of Scotland, sleeping wherever, eating whatever for 2 upper class Londoners with a servant or 2. I Would like to read the servants account.
Criticisms had to do with the download
-heavily footnoted with no way to get to the note.
-many French, Latin phrases without ability to translate.
-inserts, such as other peoples comments, not included.
In short, good read, not good for a Kindle download. I will have to put this back on my list and read the actual book.

As our Author of the Day, Dickson talks about her latest novel, Cold Stone & Ivy, and reveals how she has managed to publish 8 books while still working a day job.
