Loved it. A fascinating traipse through those areas which are certainly not rural but are not exactly urban. The two writers are both published poets and this is certainly very clear though not in a forced look at us we are poets and cannot speak unless its in poetic imagery and purple prose type way. They have beautiful turns of phrase, they quote fellow poets and their imagery often enhances and cetainly challenged my preconceived ideas.

The areas dealt with range from the ruralish aspect of woodlands and paths which might still cling on or encroach on the edge of our cities through the ex lands of disused mines or power stations or landfill to the huge anonymity of retail and business parks and hotels. Chapters in handy 10 page chunks or so make it perfect for extended moments when you know the moment cannot last beyond five or ten minutes but it also is a lovely explore in which to immerse yourself. A clever book which doesnt tell you what to think about a vast array of subjects such as light or air pollution or increased commercialization or the tension between improvement and preservation but gives you the opportunity to view them from a vantage point which I for one, may not have had before reading this book.
