    A tight little book for a voluptuary

    Flaubert's indulgent and voluptous journey through Egypt gives us not only a tableau of colour and the exotic nature of both his needs and his surroundings but enables us to share the erotic and sensual experiences found in context with his search. Enjoyable for the characters and their adventures painted with the colours of not only the desert, the sky but the women he makes love with. A delightful short escapade lovers of the exotic will enjoy.

    Blah, blah, blah

    Well,in truth the 'book' is not that bad, that is because it is Flaubert, and there are some excellent snatches of writing. For instance, his letters to his friend Louis Bouilhet are titillating - basically, erotica. But, if this is not your thing, the rest of 'book' is dry, difficult to follow. Actually, the editor must be faulted: the pieces he inlcludes - letters, journals, etc. are chronologically accurate but usually disconnected.This does provide insight into the mind of a great writer, but gives the reader little sense of what Egypt was really like. More of a pyschological tour of Flaubert's mind, than a decent travel log. For better stuff like this, read James.
