    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBAs a nation thoroughly obsessed with our own history it’s not surprising how many books have been written about our capital city In a market so over saturated with countless volumes seeking to explain and re explain ourselves it is something of a relief to read Hidden City It is a book of great charm and sly simplicity which explores the oft ignored landscapes of Dublin and her surrounding environs Guiding us through underground rivers sewage treatment plants and half completed ghost estates Karl Whitney paints an original and surprising picture of a city as easy to love as it is to hateThe core of the book is in the subtitle “adventures and explorations in Dublin by foot bike bus train and tram” By utilising so many forms of transport Whitney can take us off the beaten track embracing one of the core tenets of psychogeography that when it comes to urban exploration “playfulness” and drifting can bring us a greater awareness and understandin

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBA bit all over the place couldn't decide if it wanted to be a rant about cowboy property developers and the resultant urban blight or a quirky travel guide touring power plants airports bus routes etc Did a mediocre job of both Disappointed but did learn a few interesting things which saved it from a one star

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBAn original take on Dublin that will fill in a lot of gaps for people who feel they know the city well but have stopped exploring it A lot of the time we are just trekking around in the company of the writer who sets himself mini quests and is unflappably earnest I enjoyed his company so that was fine Sometimes the quests are a little absurd and his style is understated but the pieces all come together very well Excellent reportage on the failings of the building industry in particular with a haunting description of the fallout from Priory Hall Very well researched and an original and effective way of delivering social commentary

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBSomething of a curate's egg A book that I don't feel delivers on its impression of being the hidden Dublin It is excellent and excoriating when writing about the corruption of Fianna Fail or the victims of the housing boom However it is also full of chapters about playing a game with a bus ticket or going down the sewers that just seemed needlessly whimsical

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBI just couldn't decide do I like this or not so I give it 3 stras At some point I totally lost interest and then some parts I hardly could put it away There were some really interesting points of view for this city I really like I did recommend it for my local friend but I would not recommend it for someone who isn't familiar with the city

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBMore a collection of stories articles on the behind the scenes of Dublin Some knowledge of the city and it's geography is probably beneficial I found some chapters full of researched details like the sewers chapter and others were just games like the bus chapter I preferred the detail and was perhaps hoping to understand about Dublin's bus routes

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBNice easy read I gained from it because I've been to Dublin a few times lately I expect that it will be a little less valuable for a reader that do not have the basic geographic orientation in the city

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBI spent part of the time reading this in Dublin itself and I love the city My one big suggestion is that the author add a map to the beginning of each chapter to outline his route For those of us not bred in the city It was very difficult to get our bearings


  9. Shane Harrison Shane Harrison says:

    Hardcover Ó Hidden City PDF/EPUB Ç hidden pdf, city pdf, Hidden City PDF/EPUBA quirky exploration of the city particularly the underbelly Whitney has a witty touch with a sometimes comical paranoia thrown in Tracing his own idiosyncratic paths he delineates mental maps of the sewer system the hidden rivers and the peregrinations of James Joyce and his family Perhaps the addition of actual maps might have been a good idea His walk around the imagined perimeter of Tallaght was enjoyable but I know the area and at times such as his crazy bus game I was a bit disorientated Also despite his wit and the uniqueness of his ideas there was a jaundiced
