    One thought on “Blind White Fish in Persia”

    1. This book probably suffered from being around 30 pages too long. Not the last 30 pages - although they could have done with some culling, but in general there was just that 10% of unnecessary writing.Overall though - it was more a snapshot of the experiences of the 4 British students carrying out scientific research in Persia in 1950.The book's title - which I guess initially intrigued me - is a bit of a red herring, (no pun intended) although it features twice in the book - initially where ther [...]

    2. A fascinating overland trip to, and around, 1950s Persia, on the pretext of exploring the ancient underground irrigation systems but actually looking for a mythical animal. The author’s cheerful commentary and descriptions evoke a bygone age, but the story stands the test of time for me and was an enjoyable read (I have only read his last book about rafting the Atlantic before this).My copy had a postscript, written over twenty years later, which provides a more satisfactory bookend to the ori [...]

    3. I decided to stop reading this,life's too short and I really dont have the time to devote the concentration required to get through it at the moment!It's May 2011 and Im giving it another goWell I finished it last night and am quite relieved to be honest! Forget the title of this book- there are no blind white fish mentioned, not a single photo of one- its basically a travelogue of the middle-east in 1950! Interesting in parts but its a part of the world I never want to visit so that impinged on [...]

    4. Pretty enjoyable look at Persia in the 1950s as seen through the eyes of four Oxford students on a summer scientific expedition. Smith does a great job of describing the various people they met during their time there with respect, humor and humility, and, though there were a few slow parts, I found it a fairly entertaining read. It's really been kind of fun exploring all the free e-books that are out there!
