Travel writing

Mayes' book is long on description and short on narrative. I became a bit bogged down by it all near the middle. It was sort of like looking at someone else's vacation pictures. I was made a bit envious but also didn't need all the detail. Of course, in this case, since there were no pictures, the detail was what made the writing vivid.
