    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Labels Kindle µ labels epub, Labels KindlePublished in 1930 “Labels” is Evelyn’s Waugh first travel book which was followed in 1931 by the well known “Remote People” In both location and style this is a tentative – but certainly not a less enjoyable – book Called “Labels” because all the places visited on his trip were fully labelled in travellers minds it is obvious that Waugh is not off the beaten track Indeed he travels by train or on cruise ships meets groups of tourists and often joins them on excursions During this book he begins with a vague intention of visiting Russia but never gets there Instead he travels around Europe the Middle East and North Africa; going to Paris Monte Carlo Cairo Cyprus Malta and Barcelona among other placesThese travels take place i

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Labels Kindle µ labels epub, Labels KindleA delightful and often hilarious account of Waugh’s tour of the Mediterranean in the winter and spring of 1929 Waugh’s sharp eye for silliness and absurdity and his acid wit are on full display as are his historical and artistic interests Some parts had me laughing out loud and the ending proved a surprisingly moving meditation on homecoming and patriotism Waugh starting from London flies to Paris his description of air travel when it was still a novelty is hysterical takes a train to Monaco and the Riviera and sails aboard a Norwegian cruise liner to Naples Messina and other points in Sicily Haifa and Port Said on the Suez Canal where he disembarks for a while to keep a few fellow Englishmen company and to better explore Egypt His account of visiting Cairo the pyramids and various sites of Egyptian antiuities are uite interesting as Howard Carter’s fin

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Labels Kindle µ labels epub, Labels KindleThis book is considered a classic but I didn't love it It reminded me uite a lot of Mark Twain's Innocents Abroad which I read last year and I much preferred Twain's version of his Mediterranean travels I'm a lover of the Mediterranean after spending a good bit of time there myself Waugh's account of his travels felt mostly dry with a few humorous or interesting anecdotes here and there but not enough to make me love it I was glad the book wasn't any longer than it was because I was determined to finish it but it was a slowish read

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Labels Kindle µ labels epub, Labels Kindle I told him to drive me to the cathedral but he took me instead to a house of evil characterWaugh made a tour of the Mediterranean by ship in 1929 with noteworthy stops in Monaco Naples Sicily Port Said Cairo Istanbul Venice Split Algiers Barcelona and Gibraltar All these places or most of them at any rate had been visited and visited and written and written about by just about every literate man woman and child of the past hundred years Everything Waugh figured had already been “labeled” hence the title And yet his travelogue is fresh and funny and full of unexpected glimpses This is not one of his great novels I doubt the young Waugh could have imagined anyone would be reading this travel book almost 90 years after its first publication but Labels is a real pleasure
