I was disappointed in this book. First, I expected the same walk through many different eyes. This is not the case. These are different walks around the city with various partners. It doesn't quite work as well. Also, the author is far too romantic for my taste. Finally, the quality from chapter to chapter varies greatly. I found the second chapter, in which the author walks with her toddler son, to be quite pointless. This chapter does nothing but make the case for how extremely inattentive the author is and how incredibly oblivious she is to the world around her. I doubt there are many who have lived in a neighborhood as long as she has and is surprised by as much as she is. Perhaps I'm overly attentive to my neighborhood, but I know how many streetlights there are on my block; the circles the leaves make when they drop from the trees each autumn; the slight ups and downs of the sidewalk and how they changed when the city took out a couple of old trees and reconstructed the pavement.
