Another excellent Alive! book.
Review by Phil Stripling
The Alive! series from Hunter Publishing has delivered another excellent book, this one covering Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica, and St. Lucia. After a brief overview to the islands in general, the author devotes almost 150 pages to Martinique and almost two hundred to Guadeloupe. The chapters are chock full of useful information. We found that the descriptions fit our recollections of Martinique and Guadeloupe, and we had no major disagreements with the evaluations the author made. The book has both depth and breadth, and it is a keeper.
As with the companion volume
St. Martin & St. Barts Alive,
the layout uses lots of free clip art, one font used for headings is rather
hard to read, and there are no photographs.
This book is recommended for all visitors to St. Barts, whether first- timers or old hands on the island.
Order Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica & St. Lucia Alive! directly from the publisher and save 20% off the list price.
