Whether it’s visiting a restaurant featured in American Psycho or experiencing an event such as the running with the bulls in Pamplona through the eyes of Ernest Hemingway, Reading on Location will allow readers and travellers to get the most from their trips. I found the book delightful and absolutely fascinating and I warmly recommend it to all booklovers.
