    This was a very beautiful little book. Eric Rolls was a poet, historian, gastronome, environmentalist and romantic and his love of life shines through this book. This book was a joy to read and I found myself revisiting some of my own memories through his words. I consider myself to be a bit of a sensualist and have always railed against philosophers and religions denial of the senses as a way to enlightenment, it seems that Rolls was a kindred spirit in this area as well, "Philosphers believed that a mans mind developed only when he overcame the passions, the submission to the senses. That was the free choice: to luxuriate in passion, or to subdue it and nurture the intellect. The idea still holds among some people. It is a theory that denies life" (p.251) The senses paint this illusion called life, and what a grand and beautiful illusion it is - one to be feasted upon and appreciated for its lucious experience!

    Fantastic! Exquisite, and true to it's title, with the utmost honour and respect for it's subject matters... Surprisingly raw in parts, this is not a story with a beginning and end... yet certainly takes the reader on a sensory journey through the landscape of the author's life. A classic that should be on all young adult's learning syllabus ;) I would read it again and again if I hadn't given it to my father... :)
