Summary

Are there any genuinely wild places left in Britain and Ireland? Or have we tarmacked, farmed and built ourselves out of wildness?  

In his vital, bewitching, inspiring classic, Robert Macfarlane sets out in search of the wildness that remains.

Worst Narration ever!

I love Macfarlane’s words. Completely ruined by this narration by Nathan Turner. There’s no flow. The telling is stilted, the emphasis in weird places. Please re-record with a more sympathetic storyteller. Too frustrating for me to continue.

The most mind numbingly boring narrative ever!

Perhaps it is the narration but this is the only book I have ever returned. Counting the perforations round the edge of a stamp seems more adventurous and wild than the contents of this book.... utter tosh!
