I don't tend to review two books in one go, but I got the chance to read The Spoilt Brats Guide to Rome, and The Spoilt Brats Guide to Kamalaya. Both of these books together ran a total of 20 pages, so although they are very short books, below they will be reviewed separately. Before I get to them here is some information about the author, the books, and how Beneath The Ink helped make these book interactive.
The Spoilt Brats Guide to Rome gives us some of the best places to visit, but also info about the author herself. We get to look at photographs of various family activities, making food to feed the family at tea time, or photographs of ruins by her Mother-in-Law's house.
The Spoilt Brats Guide to Rome is informative, I liked how she advised of places to visit, and made it interactive by providing photographs of these places when you clicked on the highlighted words, but also made it feel more homely by including photographs of family and friends. The Spoilt Brats Guide to Rome is the shortest book out them both at on 9 pages long.
The Spoilt Brats Guide to Kamalaya is the longest of these books at 11 pages long. Once again this is also interactive and by clicking on the highlighted words we are treated to photographs of the island (see right, click to make it bigger) or a better explanation of the word is given.
The Spoilt Brats Guide to Kamalaya also links to relevant music videos that hold a particular interest to what the author is talking about.and places to visit.
Both of these guides were a new type of read for me but I really enjoyed the interactive element to them, never knowing what I would find under the highlighted word. While I don't particularly like hot sunny places, Kamalaya certainly has some picturesque beaches and places to visit that I would have no hesitation in visiting.
