    Blue River Black Sea Free read ´ 6 Blue River Black SeaI was given this book as a gift as I was going on a trip down the Danube but the author spends a lot of time away from the river and too much time on stories of characters rather than places This is a lightweight book which feels like a string of Sunday supplement articles put together For me disappointing

    Blue River Black Sea Free read ´ 6 Blue River Black SeaStarted out promising but as others have noted not a great book for background if you're booked on a Danube cruise If I had to categorize this one it'd be Historical Footsteps of Patrick Leigh Fermor's three volume journey across central and eastern Europe in the 1930s There is a bit of modern travel narrative in it but not a lot mostly at the beginning and end Instead Eames tries updating Fermor's visits with all b

    Blue River Black Sea Free read ´ 6 Blue River Black SeaI enjoyed all the information on the Danube the historical details added for interest and old perfume I came to know some things about Romanian history that I was not aware of though I am Romanian things that we haven't been taught at school under the communists And I deeply admire Eames for his courage dedication to his project and original way of c

    Blue River Black Sea Free read ´ 6 Blue River Black SeaI picked this up at a small town in Austria when we were on our Danube River cruise several years ago I finally picked it up this month for my bathtub book It was okay at first the guy is biking along the banks of the Danube and stopping along the way to see royalty and everyday folk and to see how the river affected life and was affected by it I liked much of it but there were several very slow dreary chapters and there is a bit of a judgey tone at times that put me off He liked to describe people he encountered but not in a flattering light most of the time so I hope those people never bought his book or he's offended half of Europe lolIn a lot of ways it was well written particularly

    Blue River Black Sea Free read ´ 6 Blue River Black SeaI picked up this book solely because we will soon be cruising up the Danube for ten days Eames is an experienced travel writer and writes fairly well though I'm sure if you were British you'd understand his jokes and nuances better than I did This is also not an adventure you'd want to duplicate under ordinary circumstances He made this journey from Donaueschingen Germany through Austria Hungary Serbia and Romania not on a luxury river boat but on foot horseback bicycle barge train car and finally canoe Most interesting to me and what will add best to our journey is his knowledge of the area's history which he shared at length For that reason it is worth the read if you intend to traveling up or down the Danube or if you are just a history buff

    Blue River Black Sea Free read ´ 6 Blue River Black SeaInteresting read I read the book because of our upcoming planned trip down the Danube This book gave kind of an introduction to what we will see At least in part since our trip does not go exactly where the author went The writer gives the reader his personal experience along with little uips about the history and the characters he met He refers to and kind of follows the line of a previous writer Leigh Fermor who made a similar journey between the two World wars I plan to read that book before our trip as well It is interesting to see a land ruled by the aristocracy then the Nazis then the Communists and now trying to adapt with whatever comes next The different nationalities languages and people displacement has been rather disastrous and can be confusing The author does a good job explaining but not over explaining this aspect of his journey
