Magic Amplified


It’s been twelve years since I read this tale of music and magic, evil and courage set in Cornwall. Last time I read it in paperback format in the 1990’s. In the intervening years the two of us have been making the transition to a digital library so this time I read The Little Country as an ebook on my iPhone and found it amplified the experience. Each time I came across a place name I could look it up on Maps or do a search for more information on a historical figure. I could use the search feature to find other references to a particular character within the book. Then there’s the fact that it’s easier to read in bed as well as it’s handy for reading at odd moments such as in a waiting room. Now desire to visit Cornwall and to see the Mên-an-Tol and Mousehole in person! I think we’d both love it. -K
