Long Promised Road A Journey Across Europe by Neil (University of Limerick, Ireland) Robinson


Long Promised Road A Journey Across Europe by Neil (University of Limerick, Ireland) Robinson

On Wednesday February 2nd 2000, in the drizzle and the gloom of a wintry Dutch dawn, Neil Robinson stepped off a P&O ferry in Rotterdam and took the first, confident steps of a journey that was supposed to take him all the way to Istanbul on foot. It was at this point that things began to go seriously wrong. Recurrent tendinitis, a severely strained achilles, the worst 'flu epidemic to hit the Odenwald in living memory and more blisters than a warehouse full of bubble-wrap all played their part in a journey which was destined, as most great journeys are, never to go quite according to plan.

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
