  1. This is an omnibus edition of two books 500 Mile Walkies tells of how the author decided to walk from Minehead to Poole, following the coast line through Devon, Cornwell and Dorset He has no other motives than to impress a girl, but decides he does need a travelling companion Along comes Boogie, his mate s dog, who is used to London, is 100% Mongrol and prefers concrete to grass They aren t really the camping type, so the book is a a list of one misadventure after another a tent that refuses to [...]


  2. I loved this book, although I m sure the author would agree it s not great literature The first story is a light hearted travel tale of the author s walk round the Devon Cornwall coastline, with an introduction to the inimitable Boogie, both right up my street In the second story, the author and Boogie take a rowing boat along the Thames, from London to its source in the wilds of Wilts Glos also an enjoyable light read only slightly marred by the introduction of a repellent love interest


  3. A must read for any dog owner, it cracks me up Not only does Mark Wallington s writing just reflect the mentality of every dog owner he gives such a rich characterisation to Boogie the dog that makes him just as relateable Any dog owner who reads it will see themselves and their dog within the pages it s one of those books i keep with me where ever i go because it s just a cracking read along with Pennine Walkies the sequel


  4. One of the first travel books I read and is very funny The author walks with his dog seeing great places and meeting all sorts of people along the way It inspired me to get into hill walking and I ve read other walkiing accounts by the same author.


  5. A light and mildly entertaining read Two books in one, I enjoyed the walk around the South West Coastpath than the rowing up the Thames river But the rewards of a journey aren t always immediate and aren t always manifest The point is should we count milestones or miles And the truth is I learned a lot from my time on the river learned a lot, that is, about myself This may not sound so special After all, most journeys offer travellers an insight into their own personality But the difference bet [...]


  6. I got this because I was interested in the walk around Cornwall but the writer seemed very down on all that he saw and it wasn t the cornwall I know Surprisingly I enjoyed the boat trip up the Thames much and laughed out loud quite often Perhaps he had mellowed by the time he took this trip It gets a bit boring to hear yet again how awful Boogie is but there is also something charming about the inner journey the author travels Light reading but not hard to keep going till the end.or the source


  7. I enjoyed 500 Mile Walkies better than Boogie Up the River which seemed too samey to me The descriptions were good could see the views that he was looking at in my imagination Was pretty disgusted with the fact that the writer thought it was acceptable to let a dog wander at will no responsibility there Yeh OK books.


  8. A very funny adventure with a dog, it takes a good thinker to get a story out of walking a dog, but Boogie is not just any dog he s the kind that if there s a post then he ll makes sure they both go round it in different directions to tangle the lead and the human.


  9. This book is in two halves there are two different stories in it So I read one half, then put it away to read the other one much later It was such a lovely read I bought a copy for my local library


  10. The first half of this book, 500 Mile Walkies I really, really enjoyed Oddly enough, I couldn t really get into Boogie Up The River at all I ve never really been one for travel writing, but I found 500 Mile Walkies a really good read.







  11. Turn over each page to find out about the stunning south west coast and Mark and Boogie s adventure around it This book is a great comedy, factual and travel book, definitely worth a read


  12. A humerous romp through the English countryside by one man and his borrowed dog.Full of belly aching laughs, well worth a chuckle.


  13. This could have been a good book if the author hadn t tried so damn hard to be funny on every second line Tiresome in the extreme.


  14. A comfort book which punctuates my life every few years, much as Boogie the dog s flatulent expressions interrupt the romantic machinations of the endearingly hapless narrator.
