Totally agree. How can you compare a very small country town like Aldeburgh, with somewhere much more built up, like Reading ?

I made a thread on this as I am interested to think what people of the results and if they have anything to say about them. Despite living in England for 15 years, I can honestly say even though I know I've been to some of these towns, I can't for the life of me remember what they were like.

All of the below are extracts from the book - not related to me in any way shape or form!
