Ming Tombs near Beijing by Wander Stories

Loving history and wanting to travel all over the world exploring even if it’s just from my Kindle, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

With only basic previous knowledge of China’s history I found the virtual tour given in this book very interesting and indepth.

The thorough knowledge of the writer and their ability to bring these tombs and their contents to life had me thoroughly absorbed. It was lovely as well, whilst travelling through time to learn about the different dynasties and their reigns.  I only have the basic Kindle, however, I found the pictures which accompanied the text were clear and definitely added to the feeling of being there.

I understand that the publishers produce these books only for the e-market, however, I did feel sad that, having finished it, I couldn’t place it on my book shelves, and yes I know you can put it up on the Kindle any time, but I just felt I would have loved it as a real book and better still with tattered pages where I had actually walked round the tombs myself, with my guide.

Whether you are going to China or are just interested in tombs or China’s history I can thoroughly recommend this book.
