      Autore francese Saggio viaggi.Non un compendio di archeologia del genere Civilt sepolte, ma una raccolta di carte geografiche ed una serie di brevi commenti sui luoghi scelti dall autore.I viaggiatori abituali, forti delle loro guide e dei loro selfie, storcerebbero il naso.Anche se dubito che riuscirebbero a collocarle tutte nel giusto contesto o che abbiano un selfie fatto a Centralia.Raccolta eterogenea divisa per continenti, tranne l Australia.Le citt Insediamenti di antiche civilt scomparse [...]

      I wish I had enjoyed Atlas of Lost Cities A Travel Guide to Abandoned and Forsaken Destinations , but unfortunately, it had many problems Aude de Tocqueville suffers from a lack of coherent tone, either problems in writing or in translation, and a couple content issues as well.The book itself is pretty, the illustrations beautiful, but the wealth of content peters off slightly there The information offered is basic often including strangely chosen sidebars such as one describing what Golden Ages [...]

      When I first saw this book, I was captivated by both its title and design the idea of Lost Cities conjures up a sense of romance, adventure, myths and fantasy while the book appears to be styled like an old explorer s notebook Thus I was pleasantly surprised to discover that all of the cities described here were real, with many abandoned in surprisingly recent times Each entry, illustrated by retro style maps, offers fascinating histories of each city s rise and fall My only disappointment is th [...]

      Tja, ik had toch meer verwacht van dit boek Wat foto s bijvoorbeeld Ook dat de tijd beter liep zou fijn zijn Niet oud en nieuw door elkaar Normaal ben ik een persoon die enorm houdt van het oude, maar ik moet zeggen dat ik meer naar de nieuwe dingen uitkeek Voornamelijk omdat die niet altijd zo bekend zijn als de oude.

    5. Alex Pler says:

      La idea me atra a aun m s que el fascinante Atlas de islas remotas , pero tanto textos como ilustraciones se quedan muy lejos de evocar lo mismo.

      Une incitation au voyage hors des sentiers battus On d couvre ici des cit s disparues, ras es, abandonn es, d sert es, et les raisons de leurs solitudes De quoi veiller l imagination

      Review title Abandoned hopeHuman infrastructure roads, houses, factories, cities represent a losing battle against the second law of thermodynamics Every home owner knows the battle I speak of fix one thing, and another breaks De Tocqueville has gathered a collection of case studies of abandoned hope in this slim volume Arranged by continent and then confusingly by city name why not country are short descriptions of the founding, flourishing, and fall of 44 cities which died due to war, climate [...]

      2,5 5Tras el precioso Atlas of Remote Islands y el excelente An Atlas of Countries That Don t Exist A Compendium of Fifty Unrecognized and Largely Unnoticed States, la idea de este libro me fascinaba siempre me han maravillado las ciudades fantasma y las historias tras de s El problema, y aqu quiz la culpa sea m s m a que de la autora, es que la mitad o m s de las ciudades que se mencionan en este libro pertenecen a civilizaciones antiqu simas, ciudades desaparecidas, yacimientos o, en algunos c [...]

    9. Travis Mueller says:

      Kind of a disappointing book I think my opinion formed early in reading it when so many of the entries seemed to just be boom towns that sprang up to exploit some mineral resource in the area and faded away when the wealth dried up I had been hoping for cities with antiquity, as hinted at by the cover art There are some in the book, but many in the modern era But even then, the entries just have this feeling of distance in reading them, like they provide a kind of overview but never give a tru [...]

    10. Stuart Parr says:

      Really interesting book that at first seems well presented The articles on each place are short but interesting The maps have a nice artistic style however they could be much clearer What this book really needs though is photographs We want to see what these places look like In the end you are slightly disappointed that you don t get a real perspective on these places.

    11. Jeff Lewonczyk says:

      Some neat stuff in here, but a little exciting in theory than in practice The writing is a bit flat which might be a result of translation and doesn t evoke the sense of mystery, grandeur and storytelling that I was looking for A good guide for further research of some of the world s forgotten places and the pictures are pretty, if not as informative as they could be.

    12. Renee says:

      I really enjoyed learning about these places, but I would have liked a little The design of the book is beautiful, but it leaves a lot of blank space that I felt could have been better used for stories about each cities or cities.

    13. Patrick Lancksweerdt says:

      Boeiend boek over tal van verdwenen steden Toch iets tekort teveel een lijst, met te weinig het verhaal achter de verdwenen stad Het verzandt nogal in een te grote opsomming zonder meer Ook foto s ontbreken totaal.

    14. Gordon Ehler says:

      Interesting Some familiar and some not familar cities Some ancient, some modern Could have been text Sort of a coffee table book only with drawings Stirred up some interesting research for me though.

    15. Broughps says:

      This would have had stars had there been actual pictures of these lost cities or what was left of them, instead of the cartoons we got.

    16. Lisa Kizer says:

      At time tedious and with a few errors Sometimes missed out telling interesting history of the places listed.

    17. Tiffany says:

      Better maps and better pictures would have been nice Interesting tidbits on history and architecture, city planning and forces of politics nature.

    18. Carlosfelipe Pardo says:

      Beautifully written, describes various cities that are no longer there Short and with nice illustrations.

      Le concept de d part tait all chant, mais l Atlas des cit s perdues se r v le d cevant.Une collection de petites capsules d une deux doubles pages par ville , qui n ont de commun avec un atlas que leur classement g ographique elles sont rang es par continent, puis par ordre alphab tique Si le texte est plut t bien fait, la fois concis et riche en informations, l iconographie est archi pauvre pour chaque ville, une unique illustration, toujours sur le m me mod le un dessin de ladite cit superpos [...]

      Regali un atlante a un ragazzino e ti stupisci se ci si perde dentro Ma cosa importa se il ragazzino ha 44 anni, un atlante sempre un atlante Ha le mappe E questo parla di citt abbandonate E cosa piace a un ragazzino pi delle mappe Ma esplorare le citt abbandonate in cerca di tesori, che diamine Con una mappa Quando ho finito di leggerlo ho fatto lo zaino e sono partito, mi sono lasciato alle spalle tutto quello che non serviva A malincuore, perch non ce l ho pi la leggerezza d animo dei ragazzi [...]

    21. Wendy says:

      Geweldig boek Een heel mooie uitgave, met telkens een korte geschiedenis over een verdwenen stad en een zeer mooie tekening erbij In het begin miste ik een echte foto van de stad, maar dat zou ongetwijfeld wat van de betovering wegnemen Op deze manier prikkelt het je nieuwsgierigheid, en ik ging meermaals meer opzoeken over een stad Ik vind het vooral een erg inspirerend boek, en een aantal bestemmingen kwamen terecht op het ooit te bezoeken lijstje Voor mij persoonlijk extra bijzonder is dat er [...]

    22. RumBelle says:

      This was a very informative book I picked it up not really knowing what to expect and what I got was a historical tour through cities that have been lost to time Some of my favorite places the book touched on were Angkor Wat and Pompeii The history, geography and culture were discussed It was a very enjoyable, educational read.

    23. Sarah says:

      Needed better illustration so much of the text was visually descriptive which would have been hugely enhanced with a small inset detail illustration, not just the wide ranging give you vague sense map type imagery already there.

    24. Jason Vanhee says:

      Well written collection of short 2 or so page entries on cities ancient and modern that are either abandoned or next to I dipped in and out for months, because that s the kind of book it is, and enjoyed it quite a bit.

    25. Eva says:

      Prachtige uitgave, waarbij een verdwenen stad telkens een prent en een toelichting krijgt Maar desondanks een weinig bevredigend concept elke stad verdient een boek, en een illustratie, hoe stijlvol ook, kan niet op tegen de honger naar beelden bij elke geschiedenis.

    27. Megan says:

      Une tr s belle dition pour un livre plein d informations int ressantes Un livre d une qualit remarquable, qui donne envie de se plonger dans les autres livres de la collection

    28. Jackie says:

      It would probably have been interesting, enjoyable, and informative to just read an equivalent number of articles This book is not worth your time.

    29. Marianne says:

      Heerlijk boek om te lezen Past bij de atlas van de vergeten eilanden.Soms hallucinante verhalen Een aanrader.

    30. Willem says:

      Heerlijk om weg te dromen bij alle verhalen over verloren steden Een aantal foto s van de locaties zou het boek nog wel verfraaien.
