Seasoned travelers, novices, and readers who enjoy visiting places without leaving the comforts of their homes will find this book by Burns (“Kinfolk” series) to be informative and enjoyable. The entries are by several authors from around the globe whose dedication to sharing the richness of each location is clear. The islands, located in such places as Italy, Iran, and the Caribbean, to name a few, fall into three categories: “Escape,” “Explore,” and “Unwind”; each one ends with an essay that highlights and celebrates what the islands have in common. Readers can go through the book as presented or turn straight to the type of trip they want to enjoy. A silhouette of each island is included, as are a brief history and information on landscape and seasonal weather patterns, customs and culture, and more. Key information potential travelers should know is included in sections titled “Getting There,” “See & Tour,” “Stay,” and “Worth Knowing.” The photographs that correspond with the text are enchanting and beautifully represent each island.
VERDICT Those looking for an island getaway will find this title very useful and enjoyable.
