    Hardcover ð Off the Map Kindle ´ Off the PDF or Off the pdf, Off the Map MOBIIn Unruly Places Alastair Bonnett has written neither a tour guide nor a history book Instead it's a sort of mash up of history philosophy and sociology applied to the geography of little known places on the earth In separate chapters the author examines places as diverse as islands that appear only on maps underground colonies deserted cities male only religious territories and even urban gutterspace or slivers of land between buildingsFacts are my thing Theory not so much I found some parts of the book interesting and some of it too conceptual to capture my interest I knew a little bit about some of the places the author examines for example underground cities inhabited by early Christians and I enjoyed learning about them But the author's philosophizing often made no sense to me Of living underground he says on one page that there is something down there something we are drawn to but just a few pages later says onl

    Hardcover ð Off the Map Kindle ´ Off the PDF or Off the pdf, Off the Map MOBII wanted to like this book a hell of a lot than I did I found it all a little too ordinary The places or non places were well described but the words lacked that magic sense of evocativeness and the what they tell us about the world just missed somehow? Maybe it's because it's formatted as a series of almost encyclopedic entries each about one specific place There's no overall thematic structure or narrative to tie them together Or maybe it's because these aren't in general places that Bonnett has a link to that he's visited He's pulled the information for e
