Read full description of the books Rebus's Scotland:I'm guessing I might have been more enthusiastic about this book if I was a fan of Rebus. I've read some Rebus books but I find the writing a bit empty. I like the observations about life and living it, but I find they're thrown out there without much background and that, for me, misses the mark. So this book, written in the same style only a bit more so, comes across as self-indulgent. I think maybe I'm not the target audience rather than it's a bad book, though.
I wasn't a fan of the lack-of-focus photography either. The photos looks like they'd been taken by somebody a little too drunk on the water of life.
