Here are a few comments from the staff who took 1 book and 10 minutes to read a bit. They gave their comments freely and anonymously- so we believe them!

1. " His journey hasn’t started yet, but sounds like he will have an interesting one."
2. " A very warming selection of tales on the canal and characters on the author’s travels which describe some hidden gems in England that I never knew existed."
3. "Seems like a good read so far. The book is witty, thoughtful and informative. I don't think it is only for a canal enthusiast."
4. " Highly readable, engaging, light fun reading if occasionally it rambles off the point. Sounds a bit like a good canal journey ought to be!"
