    eBook Christopher Somerville ¼ The January Man Kindle ð The January MOBI :½ ¼ january pdf, The January download, The January Man MOBIThe January Man is perhaps three books in one it is about Christopher Somerville's month by month year of walking Britain to the tune of The January Man by David Goulder; it is about the incredible wildlife and personal stories of people he meets during the journey; and it is also a spiritual journey he takes with his father who passed away ten years before he wrote the book The book has humorous descriptions of Christopher battling for life and limb on the various terrains that he ambles across but especially brilliant descriptions of the life he finds all around him For example in March in the valley of Nidderdale as a Yank I was really enthralled with all these Middle Earth Westeros names which I have never read or heard beforeThe ewe heaves herself up to stand and let gravity do

    eBook Christopher Somerville ¼ The January Man Kindle ð The January MOBI :½ ¼ january pdf, The January download, The January Man MOBISomerville is the walking correspondent for the London Times This is much than a collection of recommended walking routes The book has several shaping elements the folk song that lends the title which gives commentary both literal and symbolic on the seasons of the year and of life; a circular tour of Britain wandering from Somerville’s childhood home near Cheltenham all the way to the Shetland island of Foula and back to Somerset; and his memories of walking holidays with his late father their means of being close even though his reserved father carefully hid his wartime memories and top secret work for the government Inevitably I liked some chapters Foul

    eBook Christopher Somerville ¼ The January Man Kindle ð The January MOBI :½ ¼ january pdf, The January download, The January Man MOBIAt the risk of damning this book with faint praise I can't say much than that it was 'uite good'I liked the idea of dividing it up into 12 chaptersmonths each one drawing inspiration from a recent folk song The January Man Added to this Somerville also ponders on the relationship he had with his late father the walking holidays that gradually drew them closer and then a wider meditation about men from his father's generation still carrying the scars from WW2The nature writing is lovely and the different landscapes are well described Where he comes unstuck is dialogue which is stilted and clunky Overall uite enjoyable but I have read many much better walkingmemoir books and this one won't stay with me for long
