    1. I'm torn between 2 and 3 stars. Some of the pictures are startling and beautiful. Others appear to be sketches, yet the writings indicate they are not torn down I'd rather have a picture than a sketch. I also think that while, B&W can be very "artsy" that color pictures might have done many of the stones more justice.

    2. This is a gorgeous book. With its haunting black and white photographs, it really brings to mind the aura that these monoliths exude. The accompanying text is rife with references to stories, books and resources that will help a lot in my novel research.

    3. Not bad at all. The text that was in the book was interesting, but it could have certainly used more background about most of the megaliths featured. Also none of the Scottish ones were featured, which was a shame! A 'coffee table' book that could have been more.
